Mansory ruins another expensive car: Maserati MC20

The Maserati MC20 looks great and seems to ride well. It’s a mid-engine supercar with a 630 hp twin-turbo V6, with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. In Car and driverit is testit did 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and completed the quarter mile in 11 seconds flat at 131 mph.

You can definitely find a lot of faster cars. As CD pointed out, the much cheaper C8 Corvette was 0.4 seconds faster at 60 mph. But it’s also the first time in years that Maserati has sold a car that doesn’t look like it was designed to land on a Buy Here, Pay Here lot for $19,999 three years after it was sold.

So, of course, Mansory had to go and ruin it. Why? Because it is What Mansory Is. It takes things you love and ruins them. And yet it continues to exist as a successful business because people look at these abominations and say, “That’s something I’d really like to spend real money on.”

In a just world, anyone who actually bought a Mansory would automatically be locked up in The Hague, their cars burned and their assets redistributed to those who can do a better job spending the money. The business would be dismantled and the owners would be bombarded with tomatoes in the town square while everyone laughed at them until they cried.

But no. We don’t live in a fair world. We live in a world where Mansory is free to continue destroying cars and will never suffer any consequences. If there ever was a loving God, he clearly abandoned us a long time ago.

The only silver lining left is that cryptocurrency is crashing, and the kind of person who would buy a Mansory MC20 probably has a lot of money invested in crypto. Good. Let them see their wealth reduced to nothing.

Before we wrap up, here’s a reminder of what the Mansory looked at and decided to ruin:
