Here's the all-electric Maserati's radical-looks hypercar inspired by its racing legacy

Reportedly, the Italian trident-logoed sports car manufacturer, Maserati, after successfully launching its newest supercar, the Maserati MC20 in 2020, will soon enter the world of electric-powered vehicles. And then the manufacturer said that it had started testing an electric drive system that would complement future the Maserati models.

And it is also mentioned that in 2022 the Maserati MC20 will also be powered by three electric motors which are claimed to be able to spew more power. It is also mentioned that there are already another several experimental vehicles that have used the electric motors that applied the latest Maserati's technology which was fully developed in their own laboratory in Modena, Italy. They will come soon.

But what if the Modena-based manufacturer dared to present a radical form of an electric-powered supercar. Maybe through the following concept, a famous car and yacht designer named Salvatore Andrea Piccirillo intended to be the answer of that question. Well, in a brilliant way, he poured out a radical design idea of a single-seat electric-powered supercar concept called the Maserati Neptune Concept. Its name is coincidentally a translation for 'Nettuno,' the engine name installed on Maserati MC20 supercar.

Conceptually, the mentioned supercar is not meant to be a rival to the upcoming electric-powered MC20 supercar variant, but rather solely an envisioned with all-electric powered single-seat supercar is inspired by the legendary Maserati 250F race car. As stated by the designer of Maserati Neptune Concept, that the vision is a homage to the legendary Maserati 250F, that has been driven by legends like Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio and Maria Teresa de Filippis (as the first Formula-1 woman driver).
The Maserati Neptune Concept is powered by 3 electric motors, the main one is on the front of the car while the other two are attached on each its rear wheels. (Picture from: Techeblog)
"Maserati Neptune wants to take back the original 250F layout, but with a different shape and proportions. A particular attention to the Maserati's classic race car wore the racing livery number three, that is an important element in the history of Maserati is echoed in some details. There is 3 electric motors, the main one is on the front of the car while the other two are attached on each its rear wheels," Andrea Piccirillo said further.

But according to Autoevolution, the supercar appears with its unusual construction, which features plenty of void space in the middle, this virtual creation looks more like a sculpture than anything else. Nevertheless, the layout owes to the fact that, under the top side of the electric-powered vehicle, we've found a Formula E racecar platform featuring super-sized wheels and arching lines that connect them, this pixel exercise easily stimulates the mind. While the batteries are hidden behind the main engine and inside the car monocoque.
The engineering is thought to bring Formula E technology into a Granturismo concept, that’s a remarkable element in the history of Maserati. For this reason, Maserati Neptune Concept has an unique driver position, that is like a Formula 1 seat. 

This can be translated as the implementation of the brand's racing DNA taken of the legendary Maserati 250F when it raced on the Formula-1 racetrack in the 1950s, so one can easily imagine the emotions of legendary drivers such Juan Manuel Fangio or Stirling Moss when riding this creation. Too bad, it's just an imaginary car.😉 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | YANKO DESIGN | WORLDLESSTECH | AUTOEVOLUTION | TECHEBLOG | HOTCARS ]
