Sportier and more aggressive
Maserati’s MC20 and MC20 Cielo have taken personalisation “to the next level” with the introduction of model year 2023.
Standard features now include a new colour, grigio incognito, carbon-fibre engine cover, an alcantara sports steering wheel with carbon-fibre inserts and a blue starter button, which is the marque’s new benchmark to distinguish “sportier and more aggressive versions”.
Alongside an already extensive options list, two new alloys are available for both models – 20-inch carbon-fibres and 20-inch MMXX gloss-black diamond cuts.
An advanced driver-assistance system option is now available as an option. The package includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist recognition, 360-degree surround-view camera, blind spot and rear cross-path alert, auto-dimming exterior mirrors and traffic-sign information.
The 2023 models see the introduction of a new drive-mode selector actioned by a metallic bezel selector surrounding a 1.6-inch screen. This selector is the third screen to characterise the MC20s’ interiors together with the 10.25-inch instrument cluster and 10.25-inch central screen.
Also new is a comprehensive maintenance programme for three years covering all servicing requirements as outlined in the owners’ documentation.
“The Australian response to the MC20 and Cielo has been nothing short of remarkable with our allocation selling out within hours,” says Grant Barling, general manager of Maserati Australia and New Zealand.”
Model year 2023 production for MC20 Coupe starts in November and in January for MC20 Cielo, pictured.
Equipped with V6 Nettuno engines, both offer “a perfect mix of sportiness and luxury”. Developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab and produced at the historic plant on Viale Ciro Menotti, the coupe and spyder are 100 per cent made in Italy.
On our shores, the MC20 will start at $415,000 and the MC20 Cielo will be priced from $475,000.
