Keeping the promise of launching the convertible version of the MC20, Maserati has finally introduced the new MC20 Cielo with a drop-top. The carbon-fibre mid-engine beauty’s name Cielo’s name is pronounced as ‘Chi-elo’, meaning the “Sky”. With the breath-taking beauty and Nettuno V6 producing 621 hp and 730 Nm of torque, Maserati is undoubtedly aiming for the sky. To help understand the importance of the roaring V6, it is essential to know that the engine combined with an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox helps the coupe achieve a top speed of 320 kmph. Moreover, the car does 0-100 kmph in just 2.9 seconds.
Maserati MC20 Cielo: Design details
The beautifully moulded carbon fibre body of the MC20 Cielo is further complemented by “Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal”. In simple words, it features a retractable chromatic glass panel that can turn from transparent to opaque to control the light in the cabin. This retractable cover influences the car’s design by giving it a sloping roof behind the passenger compartment. It also gets a glass window showcasing the mechanical marvel in the form of the V6. As per the company’s claims, the car features the largest glass roof of all the Maseratis. Hence, featuring the trident emblem on top. However, this doesn’t affect the weight a lot, all the carbon fibre on the body manages to keep the weight under control.
