Earlier, Masrati’s product roadmap was pencilled on an MC20 spider to hit the market this year. In December 2021, Modena automaker Fluffy teased the front view of the Droptop Supercar in full disguise in the clouds. In a series of Instagram posts last week, Masrati posted a photo from someone’s perspective with an uninterrupted view of the sky – a similar scene is a convertible, say. One of the captions was, “You will appreciate the sky in a new way on Wednesday, May 25th.” This will be the release date for the automaker now calling Maserati MC20 Cielo, the last word being Italian for “sky”.
Since we haven’t seen any behind-the-scenes footage of the camouflage, we have no idea what the design changes will be in a week or so. Looking closely at the photos of the disguised prototype, it is clear that there is a temporary panel up to the declider spoiler behind the B-column. A curious feature of the prototype is the trio of ribs running from the A-column to the rear of the car, the protrusion in the middle looks like a roof scoop on paper. It seems like a lot of work to hide a form we already know, and a transformative process that we don’t expect to have any surprises, so on May 25 we’ll see what happens.
Maserati’s general spider formula has not traditionally changed the underpinning of a car, so the same carbon fiber monocoque should be bolted to the same 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 621 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque. Skylight has traditionally raised prices, so expect Coupe to pay more than $ 210,000 MSRP. We expect the model to hit showrooms later this year, probably in the United States in 2023. After all, we know that there are more powerful electric versions along the way that will be the flagship of this range.
