Meet the newest member of the supercar club – a striking Italian Spyder called Maserati MC20 Cielo. Which translates to Maserati MC20 Sky. Yeah, I know. In Italian, even the most common word sounds exotic.
Maserati’s MC20 open-top uses the same chassis, suspension, and 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged engine as its MC20 coupe.
Although Maserati’s exhaust system will be affected by new emissions regulations, the MC20 Cielo packs a powerful punch. V6 engine produces 630 horsepower and a staggering 730 Nm of torque.
Due to clever engineering, it is said that the MC20 Cielo only weighs 65 kilograms more than a coupe. In addition, vehicle acceleration increased from 2.9 seconds to 3.0 seconds.
The Maserati MC20 Cielo also sports another impressive figure. The Italian convertible has a top speed of 325 kph, which is remarkably fast for a convertible.
A common feature of modern convertibles is a small button that is used to open or close the roof in 15, 20 or 30 seconds. Additionally, you can do it while driving. That’s pretty convenient, isn’t it?
Maserati’s new offering has an electronically retractable roof that can easily be opened or closed within 12 seconds. All you have to do is push a button.
I am most intrigued by another feature. By pressing another button, the glass changes from clear to opaque (and vice versa), thanks to the polymer-dispersed LCD technology. How cool is that?
The price won’t matter. It will be more exclusive than Ferrari
Supercar will never be affordable. Supercar are just different bread of vehicles, and for this reason I do not care how much this Maserati spyder would cost, and I am sure that potential buyers wouldn’t care either.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Maserati MC20’s upcoming version is more expensive than its Italian or German rivals. Then again, exclusivity comes with a cost, doesn’t it?
