2023 Maserati Brand Upgrade MC20 Cielo
Maserati is amidst a brand upgrade. Subsequent to focusing on a full EV lineup in only three years and appearing a fairly strong yet small crossover in the Grecale, the brand dropped an all-new supercar, the MC20. That makes it Maserati’s first supercar since the MC12 over 15 years ago. Presently the brand has launched a new variant of the MC20, the Cielo.
Everything about Cielo’s drivetrain is equivalent to the standard MC20. It’s powered by a similar 621-horsepower V6 and eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The difference is in the roof.
Cielo generally translates to the sky in English, and you’ll see a lot of it in the MC20 Cielo, as it gets a remarkable retractable glass roof. Maserati depicts it as “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. The roof is also best-in-class in terms of thermal insulation and of opening and closing speed (just 12 seconds).”
In the event that you’re like me, you took a gander at this thing you’re wondering exactly where in the world the roof folds into. The whole rear panel comes up to give the roof access. It’s smooth. The Cielo likewise gets a High Premium Sonus Faber audio system that is intended for the Cielo. As indicated by Maserati, the audio system has been tuned for the “unique acoustic and positioning needs of the spyder’s cabin.”
With any vehicle like this, this mechanical complexity adds weight. Maserati seems to be attempting to guarantee individuals that weight won’t influence performance. With the top and its parts, the Cielo weighs only 143 pounds more than the coupe which brings about a 0.1-second drop in the zero to 60 time. The MC20 Cielo is set to go on sale soon. And keeping in mind that there’s no word on cost at this point, it ought to cost a smidgen more than the MC20 coupe’s $212,000 MSRP.
