Sleek and stylish, the 2023 Maserati MC20 Cielo Spyder follows up on its predecessor and adds a retractable roof. Why Cielo? It stands for sky in Italian, thus highlighting the fact that it is a model devoted to driving pleasure in the great outdoors, while maintaining all the features of the coupé.
Not just any roadster, this one boasts an electrochromic (smart glass) window that can instantly be transformed from clear to opaque at the press of a button on the central infotainment screen, thanks to Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology. As for the roof, it features excellent thermal insulation and can be opened or closed in just 12 seconds. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine making 621 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque, mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, enabling it to hit 62 mph in a mere 3.0-seconds, while topping out at over 199 mph. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability, but the MC20 coupé retails at $216,995 USD.
