Maserati has turned to UFI to equip its new MC20 Cielo with the Multitube engine air filter.
The twin air intake of the UFI Multitube, engineered by UFI technicians in collaboration with Maserati, supports and further enhances the already high performance of the 6-cylinder Nettuno Biturbo V6 engine, 3-litre 630 hp.
The tubular shape of Multitube allows greater modularity and geometric flexibility housed in the wheelhouse area, near the air inlet, it keeps the car profile and aerodynamics unchanged.
UFI Filters innovation also ensures a lightweight structure with reduced weight: up to 25 per cent less compared with other engine air filtering systems.
Another fundamental characteristic of the Multitube is the waterproof filtering media, made with the exclusive FormulaUFI.Extreme which, unlike a traditional panel, maintains high filtration performance (greater than 99.5pc) during the entire product lifecycle.
UFI claims that its Multitube also guarantees better fluid dynamics for the transit of air to the engine, protecting it from impurities, debris and water droplets.
Pressure drops are reduced by 50 per cent compared with classic panel air filters, and the filtering media provides unbeatable flame resistance – in fact it has passed the DIN53438 (ISO Standard) test that determines the degree of combustion of commercial materials, receiving F1 classification which is the highest possible.
