MC20 Cielo Rundown: This Maserati Spyder Lets You Look Up at the Stars Even When the Top is On - Play

The automaker’s ‘first-of-its kind’ spyder makes use of Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology.

Maserati just launched its MC20 Cielo, which it describes as a “first-of-its-kind” spyder. The brand says that the MC20 and MC20 Cielo are twins with two different souls; they are two distinct models that are united by a racing spirit.

The Cielo offers an immersive driving experience by way of its electrochromic (smart glass) roof. Simply press a button and, in only 12 seconds, the super sports car is transformed, opening the top up to the sky.

Alternatively, if you prefer to enjoy the all-encompassing atmosphere in the cabin, this is where the “sky feeling” comes into its own. Another tap and the roof goes from opaque to clear.

State-of-the-art Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology lets you look up at the stars even when the top is on. It only takes a moment for the roof to become clear, at virtually any temperature, while the sound is insulated inside.

Available as part of the Maserati Fuoriserie customization program, the launch color Acquamarina expounds the idea of traveling in the great outdoors. The three-layer paint is based on a racing-inspired grey, with an iridescent mica in aquamarine.

Maserati also launched the PrimaSerie Launch Edition, a limited series with exclusive features such as the Acquamarina bodywork, ice-colored interiors, and even a few golden details.

Main elements of the MC20 can also be seen in the Cielo, from the butterfly doors to the Nettuno engine. The latter is Maserati’s patented V6 twin-turbo petrol engine with technology derived from Formula 1 and the capability to unleash an output of 630 hp in 3000 cc of displacement. 

To complement the MC20 Cielo, Maserative has come up with a North Sails capsule collection. This is a line of high-performance, cutting-edge clothing, aimed specially at the adventurous in life. It is directly inspired by the PrimaSerie Launch Edition and its characteristic exclusivity, with its golden details and Ice Gray color.
