Maserati MSG Racing is planning to continue its participation in the FIA Formula E World Championship by revealing its Season 10 race car, the Maserati Tipo Folgore.
Unveiled on the eve of pre-season testing at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain, the Maserati Tipo Folgore features the same race-winning technology from Season 9, paired with a new aesthetic, representing the Italian brand’s heritage in motorsport and its continued electrificationof its products.
The Maserati Tipo Folgore – which refers to Maserati’s all-electric range – stands as a perfect bridge between the past and future, with the aim of representing the marque in the new era of motorsport.
The new Maserati Tipo Folgore showcases the Rame Folgore (Copper Glance) color accents on the rear, evoking the characteristic tone of Maserati’s new generation of electric cars, which will represent the entire product range by 2030.
Formula E’s ninth season heralded the Italian marque’s return to World Championship single-seater competition, as the Trident entered to the grid for the first time since last racing in Formula One 66 years earlier.
The campaign saw several breakthrough performances, including two pole positions, four podiums, and a landmark victory in Jakarta – a historic result which marked the Maserati brand’s first single-seater race win since the 1957 German Grand Prix.
Featuring an iconic blue hue, synonymous with Maserati, the Maserati Tipo Folgore’s Season 10 livery represents a statement of intent, and by incorporating contemporary copper detailing, points to the color of Folgore – the color of the future.
Using Formula E’s ground-breaking Gen3 package – the fastest and most-energy efficient vehicle to compete in the World Championship to-date – the car represents the very benchmark of electric vehicle performance.
With a power output of 350kW, the car has a top speed of more than 200mph, while with 600kW regenerative braking capabilities, ensures that 40 per cent of all energy used during races is sourced from regen.
Courtesy of the development of race-to-road technologies, Formula E and Maserati MSG Racing will play a critical role in the Maserati brand’s electrification journey as innovation on the track is transferred to its automotive range, the company stated.
Featuring 17 rounds, including a new race in Tokyo, Japan, Formula E’s 10th season will be the series’ biggest to-date and will commence on January 13, 2024, in Mexico City following the completion of pre-season testing.
