The superconductivity recently discovered in the UTe2 compound shows several surprising properties, including an enhancement of the superconductivity by the magnetic field. We have shown that under high pressure its behavior is also extremely interesting with an increase of the critical temperature by a factor of two, and especially the appearance of a transition between two superconducting order parameters, preceding a switch from the superconducting state to a magnetic order at higher pressure.
