Meet Maserati MC20 Cielo, the official MC20 roadster
Nearly two years after the debut of the original Maserati MC20, the Italian automaker has complemented the range with a roadster version named the Cielo. Like its coupe cousin, the vehicle has a ‘smart glass’ top that can be adjusted for opacity and folds down in 12 seconds.
The electrochromic roof is 5,268 square centimeters (816.5 square) inches large, making it the absolute largest on the market right now. The entire aerodynamic formula and exterior design of the coupe extends to the roadster in full, including the scissor doors. Granted, the carbon-fiber monocoque had to be reworked with added reinforcements in order to keep the entire vehicle rigid.
Powering the topless MC20 is the familiar 3.0-liter Nettuno V6 rated at 630 PS (621 hp / 463 kW) and 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) of torque. An eight-speed DCT drives the wheels. Due to weighing 65 kilos (143 lbs) more than its closed counterpart, the car needs three seconds to sprint 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) and maxes out at 320 km/h (199 mph).
