In case you haven’t heard, Maserati is going racing again, with its entry to the 2022/2023 Formula E season. While we wait for the Gen3 season to commence, though, the Trident brand has unveiled the MC Edition line-up for its models to highlight its storied motorsports history.
The racing-inspired special edition will be available for the Maserati Ghibli, Quattroporte, and Levante. And since it’s supposed to signify the brand’s “racing style”, they all come with the brand’s range-topping 3.8-litre turbocharged V8 engine (as seen in the Trofeo models) underneath their bonnets, making 580 hp and 730 Nm of torque.
Well, except if you buy yours in China, where it gets the entry-level 350 hp 3.0-litre V6.
The new MC Edition models will only be offered in two exclusive colours: Giallo Corse and Blu Vittoria – which, if you ask us, is a little odd since we don’t associate Maserati race cars with either yellow or blue. According to the marque, the two colours are chosen as they are the colours of Modena, “the city that symbolises the Motor Valley and is the home of Maserati”. Anyway, we digress.
No matter which colour you choose, they’ll be accompanied by unique exterior details in Piano Black, alongside a model-specific badge on the rear fender and B-pillars. The Levante MC Edition also gets 22-inch wheels, while the Ghibli and Quattroporte come with 21-inchers – all finished in gloss black and complemented by blue brake calipers.
Inside, you’ll find yellow and blue stitching, alongside denim accents across the natural Nero Pienofiore black leather upholstery, alongside blue carbon fibre trims throughout the cabin. The headrest also gets a special MC Edition logo featuring the Italian tricolour flag; the same design can also be found on a plaque on the centre console.
As for standard equipment, all Maserati MC Edition models will come with an electronic sunroof, Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system, as well as the Driver Assistance package from the factory.
The MC Edition range will be available in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, and China regions starting from February 2022. Pricing wasn’t disclosed, but we don’t think it’ll stray too far away from your other Maserati special editions.
