Maserati MC20 Cielo: The Sky is No Longer the Limit

May 27th, 2022 by

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, It’s the Maserati MC20 Cielo.

Recently, Maserati unveiled its newest spider in the model range. As a matter of fact, the Maserai MC20 Cielo is the latest and ultimate innovation at Maserati. Due to the success of the MC20, Maserati has revamped and introduced the convertible model. In fact, the Italian word Cielo translates to sky.

Beyond the Sky

First, the theme of the MC20 Cielo is beyond the sky. All promotional images shared on social media encouraged users to look to the sky by highlighting structures in the skyline. The unconventional launch of the vehicle showcased the MC20 Cielo at all angles. Maserati wants drivers to go beyond the ground and fully immerse themselves in the driving environment.


Designed to excite the senses in every detail the Maserati MC20 Cielo delivers an unrivaled experience. With uncompromising performance, it is time to enjoy the duality of two worlds; being able to see more when the roof is retracted and enjoying the same acceleration, power and driving dynamics as its twin – the MC20 Coupe – when closed.

The sea and the restless energy beneath the waves inspired the oceanic hues of the MC20 Cielo. Maserati captured it in a mesmerizing new color available exclusively for the Maserati MC20 Cielo: Acquamarina. As it reflects the sky and the sea shimmering and shifting in motion, it is always restless, always moving forward. The color works in complete harmony with the sensuality of the sculptured metal suggesting the power and adrenaline that lies beneath its breathtaking form.

Always Open to Excitement

Dramatic effect doesn’t stop when the Maserati MC20 Cielo stands still. While remaining a spider in the purest sense, the doors shift upwards and outwards towards the sky as they open. Without compromising weight or performance, every arrival is an event. Windtunnel-sculpted to integrate seamlessly into the overall design concept, the MC20 Cielo’s retractable roof is also extremely quick. The hard top PDLC glass roof can still give the impression of an open top and the endless sky above, even when closed. It takes only a rival-beating 12 seconds for it to slide gracefully away into the rear housing and the driver can operate it at speeds of up to 50km/h.

Breathtaking Beauty of the MC20 Cielo

Most important, the theme of intricate design is continued in the lavish cockpit of the Maserati MC20 Cielo. A place where Italian craftsmanship seamlessly combines and complements cutting-edge technology. Maserati designed the space as your heaven. That is to say that it is a contained, liveable space designed as much for excitement as functionality.

Clean, fluid lines dominate the overall design vision of the MC20 Cielo and with the top open or closed nothing from an aesthetic point of view has been compromised, only enhanced. Using Computational Fluid Dynamics and wind-tunnel technology, the results have helped sculpt the MC20 Cielo’s purposeful stance and pure sporting soul. Thanks to unique in its class PLDC glass, with the sky above, even when closed, you can switch from matte mode to clear mode in an instant with the Cielo button.

Unquestionably, the spirit of Maserati presents itself in unashamedly bold terms on the MC20 Cielo. From the stylized Trident emblem adorning the engine bay, to the unique Cielo badging and personalized Alcantara® interior specs, there can be no doubt as to the MC20 Cielo’s origins, intent and the legacy it represents.

The Sky is Not the Limit in the Maserati MC20 Cielo

A world of sound, information and seamless interactivity awaits in the cabin of the Maserati MC20 Cielo. With a powerful sound system, the MC20 Cielo creates a perfect sensory experience – all through the interactive next-gen interface R1 10.25” screen.

While performance and driving dynamics are at the heart of the MC20 Cielo, safety is also always a primary consideration. Maserati made a surround view camera, Automatic Emergency Braking and pedestrian/cyclist recognition (AEB) and Traffic Sign Information (TSI) available as options to complement the rigorously safety tested chassis, a sense of confidence is instilled in the balance between power and protection.

Poise and purity of driver engagement behind the wheel of the MC20 Cielo is paramount. Drive Mode utilizes unlatched turn logic  to effortlessly select the respective driving modes: GT, Sport, Wet, and Corsa. With various boost levels from the Nettuno engine and associated stiffness of suspension, enjoying the complete package of the MC20 Cielo is just a seamless shift of a switch away.

Hell Bent on a Heavenly Experience

Usually, when designers compromise structural rigidity and weight, so is handling and outright performance. Through stringent attention to detail, Maserati designers ensured nothing compromised the MC20 Cielo’s performance. With the roof either closed or open no concession is made to performance drop off. This ensures an immersive and thrilling driving experience. The quest for aerodynamic perfection has resulted in a fully integrated extension of the overall design. The result is supercar performance propelling the MC20 Cielo to 100km/h in just under 3 seconds and comfortably to over 320km/h.
