MC20 Cielo Is The Name Of Maserati’s Next Open-Top Supercar
According to Maserati, Cielo highlights the fact that it is a model devoted to driving pleasure in the great outdoors
Maserati has announced that its upcoming supercar will be called the MC20 Cielo, with its global reveal set to take place on 25 May. Cielo is the Italian word for “sky” and if that’s not the perfect name for an open-top model (or a spyder as they call it), we don’t know what is.
Further details remain unknown at this time of writing but expect the MC20 Cielo to look exactly like its coupe sibling, save for the convertible roof, of course. Power should also come from the same source i.e. the all-new 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine called the Nettuno. It has a dry sump, a compression ratio of 11:1 as well as a Formula 1-derived pre-chamber combustion system which uses twin spark plugs.
In the MC20, the engine makes 630 hp and 730 Nm of torque and sends it all to the rear wheels via an eight-speed wet dual-clutch transmission. This allows it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 325 km/h. Naturally, the MC20 Cielo should be slightly slower than this.
Maserati is ready to showcase another new model: a one-of-a-kind spyder, it will be known as MC20 Cielo. The Global Premiere will be on 25 May.
To coincide with today’s International Day of Light, the Trident Brand reveals the name of a car characterised by a special “Sky Feeling”: after all, it remains a convertible.
MC20 Cielo announces its sporting vocation and its special feature: MC stands for Maserati Corse (‘Racing’); 20 refers to 2020, the year that began the brand’s new era; Cielo (‘sky’) highlights the fact that it is a model devoted to driving pleasure in the great outdoors, while maintaining all the prerogatives of a true super sports car.
The new spyder is a 100% made in Italy model: developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena and produced at the historic plant on Viale Ciro Menotti, as is the coupé.
