    The convertible version — which is powered by a V6 Nettuno engine — is 65 kilograms heavier than its coupe counterpart. The vehicle is engineered with a carbon fiber chassis (which will be seen in all three configurations namely the coupe, spider and the future electric version).

    The newly introduced model is fitted with a retractable glass roof — a unique feature in the segment. The state-of-the-art electrochromic (smart glass) window 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. It is considered as best-in-class in terms of thermal insulation and of opening and closing speed (12 seconds).

    Further, the MC20 Cielo comes with butterfly doors and a carbon fiber cockpit.

    Moreover, the launch version features Acquamarina, a new three-layer metallic color available in the Maserati Fuoriserie customization program. The base is a pastel grey inspired by racing in line with the MC20’s sporty DNA, accompanied by an iridescent aquamarine mica “that enlivens the hue and makes it exceptional.”
