Maserati teases camouflaged supercar prototype

The car is said to be a test mule for a new Maserati-developed powertrain.

Maserati has posted a few teaser photos showing a new high-performance model shrouded in a camouflage wrap outside the company's Modena headquarters.

The company says the car is a mule for the new powertrain that has been developed entirely in-house and will spawn an entire family of engines exclusive to the Italian luxury marque.

The press release does not provide much more detail regarding the car itself. It appears to be even more supercar-like than the Alfieri concept, previously confirmed for production as a Porsche 911 rival available with a gasoline engine or as the company's first pure battery-powered vehicle.

Maserati recently released an investor update that showed a mystery "all-new sportscar" on the roadmap for 2020 with an EV variant available, seemingly aligning with the prior official plans to bring the Alfieri to market. The EV is unlikely to inaugurate the new model, however, and may arrive later in the product cycle.
