We continue to cover the subject Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale this time to compare it with its close cousin, the Maserati MC20! With the Alfa Romeo's technical specifications published a few days ago, it's now possible to compare them.
First, let's compare the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale and Maserati MC20 specifications on paper.

|Engine||3.0L V6 620 hp||3.0L V6 630 hp|

As you can see, it's not really surprising - on paper, they're a dead heat. They're no longer cousins, but twins.
Here, it's a matter of taste! The Alfa Romeo's design is probably more Latin, while the MC20 is more track-oriented.
About the living space, in accordance with the wishes of Philippe Imparato, General Manager ofAlfa RomeoI'm glad I don't have a tablet on wheels, the Alfa Romeo has no central screen. Everything happens behind the steering wheel and in the center column. A priori, there doesn't seem to be any multimedia in the 33 Stradale...
On the MC20, on the other hand, there's a central touchscreen that controls multimedia, air conditioning and other information, but it's not integrated into the dashboard, which is a shame.
The price... of scarcity
One of the biggest differences between the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale and the Maserati MC20 is the price! The Alfa Romeo costs from €1.5 million, while the Maserati MC20 costs "only" €245,000.
The Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale will be produced in 33 units, all of which have already been sold. The MC20 is available to order.
In the end, the characteristics are similar in terms of performance, engine and dimensions. With Alfa Romeo, you pay for design and rarity.
If you regret not being able to buy an Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, buy a Maserati MC20! You can even take it with all the options...
