Remember the early MC20 convertible prototype Maserati teased at the end of 2021? The Italian luxury carmaker has now revealed the name for the “one-of-a-kind” spyder scheduled to make its global premiere on 25 May 2022. 

Dubbed the MC20 Cielo (“sky” in English), the upcoming derivative’s name “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”. As a reminder, the ‘MC’ stands for Maserati Corse (“racing”). The 20 refers to 2020, “the year that began the brand’s new era”. 

The Trident brand has yet to announce power and torque outputs for the MC20 Cielo. However, as a reminder, the 3.0-litre V6 petrol motor powering the coupé variant produces 463 kW and 730 Nm of torque. According to the Modena-based manufacturer, this is enough to propel the mid-engined sports car from zero to 100 km/h acceleration in less than 2.9 seconds and on to a top speed of “over” 325 km/h.
