Just last week at “The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering”, the new Maserati MC20 Cielo was debuted, sharing their open-top version of its super sports car. Offering a perfect mix of luxury and sportiness, the car is equipped with a state-of-the-art V6 Nettuno engine and an innovative retractable glass roof offering a special “sky feeling”.
The car is 100% made in Italy as it was developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena and produced at the company’s historic plant on Viale Ciro Menotti.
As a first in the convertible segment, this car is equipped with an innovative and unique retractable smart glass roof, which can instantly be transformed from clear to opaque at the touch of a button. To do so, the roof employs Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology to provide a multi-faceted driving experience: cozy and focused with the roof closed, and opaque; a unique open “sky feeling” when the roof is transparent; a holistic experience with the top down.
The heart of the MC20 Cielo is the revolutionary new Nettuno engine, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that delivers 630 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, with 730 Nm of torque @ 3,000-5,500 rpm. Maserati’s Nettuno is the first engine intended for a road car to use an innovative pre-chamber combustion system with twin spark plugs, a technology derived from Formula 1 competitions.
Maserati also featured the Grecale Trofeo in Grigio Lava Opaco (matte lava grey) performance SUV and MC20 Coupé super sports car with Rosso Corse, Bianco Audace Lucido and Verde Smeraldo (Corse red, bold gloss white and emerald green) livery at the event.
The Grecale Trofeo: is equipped with a high-performance 3.0L 530-hp V6 petrol engine, based on the Nettuno. The brand’s latest SUV represents an ideal blend of elegance, innovation, performance and versatility, while ensuring optimum comfort, driveability and safety.
Conversely, the MC20 Fuoriserie: forms part of the Maserati Fuoriserie customization program. Maserati Fuoriserie offers customers the opportunity to create the car of their dreams, tailored to their exact tastes. Using a wide array of colors and designs, the only limitation is the imagination of individual customers, who can express their own personal creativity across the Italian luxury marque’s range.
