The MC20 presented in 2020 will now be followed on May 25, 2022 by the premiere of the Maserati MC20 Spyder, which will be called the Maserati MC20 Cielo. The name is composed as follows: "MC" stands for "Maserati Corse" ("race"), "20" for the year 2020, when a new era is to begin for the brand, and "Cielo ("sky"). At market launch, the MC20 Cielo will be available in the "PrimaSerie Launch Edition" version. This is a limited edition of around 60 units, featuring special equipment including the "Acquamarina" color, matte black 20-inch alloy wheels with a white gold finish and laser-engraved "PrimaSerie" lettering. Badges are also applied to the bodywork, while the interior features leather and Alcantara with contrast stitching in the "Acquamarina" color and "PrimaSerie" lettering on the headrests. All the nuances of the ocean are captured in this fascinating new color. Inspired by the sea and the restless energy behind the waves. It reflects the sky and the shimmering water. A supercar for pure driving pleasure in nature.Configuration
As with the Maserati MC20, the 3.0-liter V6 Nettuno engine with 630 hp and 730 Nm of torque, mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, continues to sit at the heart of the sports car. Despite weighing 65 kg more than the coupe, performance remains impressive. With acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds (0 to 200 km/h in 9.2 seconds) and a top speed of over 320 km/h.
The MC20 Cielo actually inherits all the aerodynamic and aesthetic details of the coupe - including the door opening system. However, the carbon monocoque had to be revised to offer greater torsional rigidity given the lack of a roof. In addition, Maserati changed the layout of the air intakes to the engine compartment to optimize cooling and aerodynamic flows. Dimensions remain unchanged: The Cielo is 4.67 meters long, 1.97 meters wide and 1.22 meters high. Does that seem too low? That's no problem: there's a lift system that can increase ground clearance by 50 mm at low speeds. As with the coupe and the future electric variant, the body is made entirely of carbon fiber and composite materials, but in the case of the Spyder it weighs around 65 kilograms more.
The interior of the MC20 Cielo incorporates the latest innovations also introduced in the coupe version - we immediately notice the new carbon and Alcantara steering wheel, for example. In just 12 seconds, the roof disappears elegantly and unrivaled quickly into the rear area and can be operated at up to 50km/h. What's more, it can be converted from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button. Maserati claims that the Electro Chrome Glass works in temperatures ranging from -30°C to +85°C and reduces interior noise without affecting the available cargo space in the slightest. In addition to parking sensors, rearview camera and blind-spot monitoring, which the coupe has also had since the 2022 model year, the Maserati MC20 Cielo (2022) introduces autonomous emergency braking, traffic sign recognition and a 360-degree camera. New rims have also been added to the catalog. Later, even rims made of carbon will follow. They will be a total of 30 kg lighter than the standard aluminum rims.
