    The Maserati MC20 Cielo made its United States debut at the “The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering.”
  • What powers the Maserati MC20 Cielo?

    The new Maserati MC20 Cielo is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 Nettuno engine.
  • According to the automotive marque, “The Quail” (which is a major part of Monterey Car Week), was the ideal setting for a luxury brand to highlight the super sports car’s open-top version.

    Presenting the Trident brand’s latest addition to the public are Maserati Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Davide Grasso, and Maserati Americas CEO Bill Peffer, together with Head of Maserati Design Klaus Busse.

    The new Maserati MC20 Cielo is powered by a Nettuno engine, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 power mill that delivers a peak performance of 630 horsepower (hp), and 730Nm of pulling power. The aforementioned powertrain is said to be the first engine intended for a road car to use a pre-chamber combustion system with twin spark plugs — a technology commonly found in Formula 1.

    Further, the new Maserati MC20 Cielo features retractable glass roof that can instantly be transformed from clear to opaque at the touch of a button, thanks to its Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology.

    A 100-percent Italian model, the new Maserati MC20 Cielo was developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab and produced at the historic Viale Ciro Menotti facility— both found in Modena.

    Joining the spyder offering on the stand were the Maserati Grecale Trofeo and the MC20 Coupé Fuoriserie version.

    The Maserati Grecale Trofeo – in Grigio Lava Opaco (matte lava grey) – is equipped with a high-performance 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine (that is based on the Nettuno) that has a maximum output of 530hp.
