Masrati The upcoming convertible version of its MC20 Supercar has been officially announced before the May 25 worldwide release.
It has been dubbed MC20 Heaven – MC stands for Maserati Corse, 20 refers to the year 2020 when the new era of Maserati began, and Cielo is Italian for the sky.
Maserti hinted at this silo name when it shows a camouflage prototype with a blue sky and white clouds.
The Italian automaker continues with the Cloud and Sky themes in teaser content that says the MC20 Cielo reveals “new horizons” and “goes beyond the sky.”
We haven’t seen any pictures of the production-ready MC20 Cielo yet, but it’s not expected to be a completely different design from the blue-and-white camouflage prototype.
As mentioned earlier, there appears to be a groove running towards the engine bay from the top of the windscreen, and there seems to be a hump on the rear deck.
The company has not yet revealed much about the MC20 Cielo, except that it will be built in Modena and its body is made entirely of carbon-fiber and composite materials, just like the fixed-roof model.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Under the skin, all of MC20 Cielo’s drivetrain components should be shared with existing MC20 coupe.
Currently, the MC20 coupe is only available with a 3.0-liter Nettuno twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 470kW of power and 730Nm of torque.
It is paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission that is sent exclusively to the rear wheels. The MC20 coupe is capable of sprinting 0-100km / h in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of over 325km / h.
Given the need for additional bracing, the MC20 Cielo will probably weigh a little more than the coupe, which tip to the 1500kg scale. It will probably be a bit slower due to the extra weight.
A pure electric drivetrain will also join the MC20 range in the near future.
Maserati recently announced that it will be all-electric by 2030 and by 2025 there will be at least one pure electric variant for each model.
This electric vehicle (EV) push is starting with the new GranTurismo Folgore, which has recently been shown in prototype form. It will also be complemented by the Grecale Folgore SUV
The Italian automaker will also launch all new generations of Quattroporte sedans and Levante SUVs, both of which will have electric drives.
Maserati is far from the first mark with a huge Stalantis brand portfolio to announce a cut-off date for the sale of combustion-powered vehicles.
Abarth, DS and Lancia will be EV only in 2024, Alfa Romeo will leave iCE in 2027, and Opel / Vauxhall outside China will only sell EV by 2028.
