The car that cares

Maserati MC20 convertible previewed in first official images

Maserati is pushing ahead with its new model rollout, teasing another model due to get there in 2022 alongside the Grecale SUV, GranTurismo GT and GranCabrio convertible.

The lately released MC20 supercar is probably to be joined by a convertible version up coming calendar year, and Maserati has produced the very first official visuals of the Lamborghini Huracan EVO Spyder rival.

Captioned “An early prototype of the new MC20 convertible has exited the gates of our Modena plant” , the new visuals present the MC20 in usual prototype camouflage wrapping. We can see that the roof is a hard top rated, suggesting it’ll have a equivalent folding steel roof arrangement to vehicles this kind of as the Ferrari F8 Spider and McLaren 600LT Spider.

In other places, there seems to be little visible difference in between the already uncovered coupe and this fall-top rated version. It is also unclear if it will basically be dubbed ‘convertible’ or if it will undertake the ‘Spider’ nameplate.

Hope to see the price tag maximize rather above the £187,230 figure for the MC20 coupe, most likely nudging the £200k mark (which would nevertheless undercut the F8 Spider by above £25,000). Pounds will probably maximize above the 1475kg figure quoted for the coupe on account of the intricate roof system.

We’re anticipating to see the MC20 convertible get there with the exact mid-mounted 621bhp ‘Nettuno’ twin-turbo V6 as the coupe, which comes in the United kingdom in the up coming pair of months. That should make it capable of 62mph in close to three seconds, even though it stays to be seen if the 202mph top rated velocity of the coupe will be reduced by the folding roof.

Even so, not like the the greater part of Maserati’s rivals, the brand also intends to start a thoroughly electric version of the MC20 in due system. It was also due to start in 2022, but it is unclear if this has been pushed back due to the exact pandemic and chip shortage-connected delays that pushed back the start of the Grecale.
