Maserati MSG Racing unveils Formula E Gen 3 livery

Maserati MSG Racing has revealed its brand-new livery ahead of its debut in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

Unveiled on the streets of Modena, home of Maserati – the first Italian automotive brand to enter Formula E – the Maserati Tipo Folgore was inspired by the Trident’s blue hue.

The first racing car to bear the Trident logo was the Tipo 26, which debuted in 1926 at the Targa Florio, finishing first place in its class with Alfieri Maserati at the wheel. Now, 96 years later, the Maserati Tipo Folgore has brought those principles into the era of electrification. The Maserati Trident is naturally prominent on the nose cone along with the Maserati Corse logo containing the Italian Tricolore sitting either side of the bulkhead.

Maserati joins Formula E for Season 9 and its new Gen3 era, which will showcase the fastest and most efficient Formula E car yet, with front and rear powertrains delivering 600kW of regenerative power and 95% power efficiency allowing for more than 40% of the energy used within a race to come from regenerative braking alone.

The team has recruited Edoardo Mortara, the Swiss-Italian who finished third in the Drivers’ Championship last season, as well as Max Günther from Nissan.

The Maserati Tipo Folgore will soon head to Valencia, Spain, for pre-season testing before taking to the track of Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez City in Mexico City,14 January 2023, to commence the 17-race calendar.
