This twin-turbo Nettuno V6 engine will be mated to a six-speed sequential racing transmission with paddle shifters on the steering wheel.

The MC20 GT2 features an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber central monocoque with a lightweight, quick-release all-composite body for “good power-to-weight ratio”.
