New Maserati convertible to be called ‘MC20 Cielo’



As we have shared in December 2021, Maserati is preparing to welcome its latest offspring; a convertible variant of the MC20 flagship sportscar launched in 2020.

Before its global launch on the 25th of May 2022, Maserati has jumped the gun to reveal the name of its new convertible called the ‘MC20 Cielo’. As you may have read, MC stands for ‘Maserati Corse’ which means ‘racing’, while 20 refers to ‘2020’, the year that sparked a new era for Maserati beginning with the MC20 coupe.

As for Cielo, it means ‘sky’ in Italian and according to Maserati, it’s a model devoted to driving pleasure in the great outdoors while maintaining all the pleasures of a true sports car.

Like the coupe, the new Cielo is developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena and manufactured at the Viale Ciro Menotti plant as is the coupe.

While it may look rather similar to the design of the coupe, teaser images shown before indicates that the A-pillars and roofline of the MC20 Cielo could be redesigned. Maserati says the body of the MC20 Cielo is also made of carbon fibre composite.

Engine specifications were not revealed but it’s safe to assume that the Cielo will be powered by the same 3.0-litre twin-turbo engine that powers the MC20 coupe, with 630 hp and 730 Nm.
