New convertible version of Maserati's MC20 launched

The Maserati MC20 super sports car now also comes as a convertible spyder - say hello to the MC20 Cielo.

In case you need a recap, the MC20 is Maserati’s mid-engined, two-seat rival to the Ferrari 488 GTB or the McLaren Artura.

The MC20 - which recently won the ‘Best of the Best’ prize at the Red Dot Awards 2021, which celebrates product design - sits at the very summit of the Maserati range, ahead of the Quattroporte saloon.

And now, for the first time, you can get a spyder version, dubbed the ‘Cielo’, for what Maserati calls its all-important ‘sky feeling’.

What’s interesting about the Cielo - and which makes it a bit of a one-off - is that the retractable roof is actually made of glass, and can switch between being transparent or cloudy thanks to some clever tech. 

An excited Maserati spokesperson reveals: 

“The model is equipped with a state-of-the-art electrochromic - smart glass - window that can instantly be transformed from clear to opaque at the touch of a button on the central screen, courtesy of Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology.”

That special roof also retracts in just 12 seconds.

And the spokesperson adds: 

“Courtesy of this epitome of technology, MC20 Cielo provides a multi-sensory driving experience: all-encompassing with the roof closed and opaque; unique for the in-cabin brightness when the roof is transparent; holistic with the top down.”

The Cielo weighs just 65 kg more than the regular coupe, and Maserati says it’s still rigid and precise enough to be enjoyed on both track and road.

Like the coupe, the Cielo sports eye-catching butterfly doors - which are a bit of a show-stopper. And the new model also adds a host of driver assistance and safety systems over and above the regular MC20, which includes an autonomous emergency braking system, traffic sign recognition and a new 360 degree camera.

You also get an uprated sound system courtesy of swanky Italian audio specialists Sonus Faber, which has been specifically designed to complement the spyder’s unique cabin.

Engine wise, the Cielo has the same powertrain as the MC20 coupe. That means a stonking 3.0 litre V6 ‘Nettuno’ that delivers power of 630 hp and a 0-62mph time under 2.9 seconds. Top speed, meanwhile, hits 202 mph.

The Maserati MC20 Cielo costs from £215,000, while you can lease the MC20 Coupe through Select Car Leasing here.
