Maserati produces the MC20 convertible, introducing the limited edition Cielo. It is called PrimaSerie and will be released in an edition of only 65 copies.
Unlike the standard Maserati MC20 Cielo convertible, the Prima Serie comes with distinctive exterior and interior elements. The exclusive version of the model is painted with three-layer Acquamarina paint. According to Maserati, PrimaSerie “uses the power of Neptune.” This is a kind of first-class marketing, which speaks for itself because it fits perfectly into the theme of “trident”, which the Italian brand has used for many years.
As for the famous “trident”, all Maserati badges are made of matte white gold, and the PrimaSerie logo is laser-printed on them. The appearance of the limited edition Cielo is completed by standard 20-inch forged wheels in a color that perfectly contrasts with the blue case.
The standard equipment of the sports car includes seats made of Ice Alcantara leather with Aquamarina stitching. The pattern on the seats is also unique for this car, and the PrimaSerie logo is embroidered on the headrests. The light interior contrasts with the carbon fiber trim and black dashboard.
Perhaps the most striking feature is the trident emblem painted on the tonneau cover hiding the roof. Under the lid hides the same coating of liquid crystal glass with polymer dispersion as the usual MC20 Cielo, which can change from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button. Aesthetic improvements end there, but excess is not what the designers were aiming for.
Mechanically, the car is the same as a standard Cielo. It is equipped with a Maserati Nettuno V6 twin-turbocharged engine with 621 horsepower and 729 Nm of torque. Maserati claims that it can accelerate to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and its maximum speed is just over 200 km/h.
According to foreign experts, the Cielo will be sold at a price of about $240,000, and at least another $50,000 can be added to this price, given how few PrimaSeries models Maserati intends to build.
