Planned in the roadmap Maserati for a while, the convertible version of the Maserati MC20 has finally been unveiled this May 25, 2022! And here is its name: Cielo. You don't need to speak Italian to know what it means :). Spyder could have been a good choice but hey!
Thus, the Maserati MC20 Cielo joins the line of convertibles after the 4200 and the GranTurismo, without succeeding them since it is rather a question of proposing here a convertible supercar. The Maserati MC20 Cielo weighs only 65 kg more than the coupe.

It still looks different than an SUV... Besides, it's not with an MC20 that we'll be able to push the stupidity to the point of driving down the stairs of the Trinity of the mountains! Long live the convertibles that help maintain a certain level of decency in this world...
I hope my dealer will order one to see it in person 🙂
