Formerly known as Project24, the MCXtrema does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s the most extreme thing that Maserati could come up with using the bones of the MC20. And the 62 examples that are set to be built can only be used on track.

You can see why with just one look at that bodywork, can’t you? There are narrow lights up front and an aggressive front end, while out back it’s all about the wing and fin. We love how different the MCXtrema looks to the road-going MC20.

It should drive pretty differently too. Not least because the 3.0-litre Nettuno V6 now has new turbos, a new intake and a different exhaust system for a total of 730bhp.

So, sit back, and let Jack Rix be your guide to Maserati’s new track monster. Cool thing, huh?
