Last week, we reported that the Maserati brand had been hinting on its social media accounts about a new vehicle unveiling scheduled for Wednesday, May 25th. We speculated that the unveiling would more than likely be the upcoming convertible version of the brand’s mid-engined super sportscar.

Yesterday, Maserati confirmed that the unveiling would be its new MC20 spyder, which will officially carry the name “Cielo”. For those who aren’t familiar with the Italian word, it means “sky”. It also explains, why prototypes of the car are covered in special “cloud-themed” camouflage.

According to sources, the MC20 Cielo will feature a power-retractable hardtop. This explains why we did not see the rear glass in the teaser shots, as the top will more than likely sit over or just behind the engine in the very rear of the vehicle as the Nettuno engine sits so far forward in the monocoque.

Powering the MC20 Cielo will be the all-new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter (Nettuno or “Neptune”) V6, which delivers 630CV (or about 621 horsepower) at 7500 rpm and 730 Nm (or 538 lb.-ft) of torque from 3000 rpm with a specific power output of 210CV/liter (or 207 horsepower/liter). The Nettuno features twin spark plugs per cylinder, a dry-sump, as well as uses both direct and indirect fuel injection systems.

The new powerplant is mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and powers the rear wheels using a mechanical limited-slip differential.

An all-new battery-electric (BEV) version will also be available after launch, using the brand’s new Folgore powertrain. The Folgore-equipped vehicles will feature 800-volt technology and a charging capacity of up to 300 kW. Maserati has even said that the Folgore variant will be the “most powerful Maserati ever”. 

Stay tuned, as we will be doing a follow-up once the car is unveiled on the 25th.

Spotted my first MC20 a couple of weeks back, it was blue and a bit larger in person than I thought. Maserati is real popular on Long Island and our car show season is starting soon, so there should be a few more MC20s poping up. Trendy Oyster Bay does an Italian night featuring Italian exotics and live music playing lots of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Jerry Vale tunes to set the mood. A Fiat club crashes usually to add atmosphere. The crew from the TV show “Carfellows” bring their classic white Caddy’s too and share some pastry with folks. I expect more MC 20 to join the party.... ” la dolce vita” Oyster Bay style. So fun.
