The 2023 Maserati MC20 is an exotic street automobile that delivers a race-car driving experience with its carbon-fiber body, monstrous 621-hp twin-turbo V-6, and neck-crunching cornering force. Like Ferraris and Lamborghinis, it attracts attention from onlookers thanks to its sleek Italian-inspired supercar design and butterfly-style doors.
With the push of a button, the new Cielo Spyder convertible may be driven in the open air. However, the MC20 has its own unique set of drawbacks, as do many other supercars. The car’s suspension is comfortable enough for the occasional road trip, but the trunk is so little that you’ll need an assistant to help you tote about your belongings.
In addition, the MC20 lacks even the most basic driver aids like cruise control and lane-keeping assist, both of which are standard on competing models. Okay, then. Everything about the MC20 screams “hard-core enthusiast driver with money to indulge in car with overpowering character,” from the view out the windshield to the cacophony of wild engine sounds to the butt-kicking performance.

What is coming In 2023?
The Cielo Spyder convertible is a new addition for the MC20’s second year of production. The glass roof may be electrically retracted in about 12 seconds. Should the sun be too bright, the top’s electrochromic glass surface can be switched from transparent to opaque. It’s true that the Cielo Spyder has the same amount of passenger and cargo space as the Coupé model, but that’s only because the Coupé model has similarly meagre cargo space. Acquamarina is a special paint choice for the convertible’s Primaserie Launch Edition trim, of which only 60 examples will be produced.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
There is a 621-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-6 under the hoods of the MC20 Coupé and Cielo Spyder. The Nettuno’s motor employs a special twin-combustion system similar to that found in Formula 1 race vehicles and is mated to an eight-speed automated gearbox.
Engines from Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, and Porsche can’t compare to its 207.6 horsepower per litre. As per our tests, the MC20 can hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and can cover a quarter mile in 11.0 seconds at a whopping 131 mph. The MC20 is not just fast, but it also has race car-level handling.
With the adaptive suspension set to its most compliant setting, the MC20 has a ride pleasant enough for daily use or long-distance travel, despite its otherworldly performance. Maserati also claims an electric, all-wheel-drive MC20 will be available soon. We are still waiting for information regarding the EV model’s battery and electric motors to be made public, but the manufacturer has promised to do so in the near future.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The MC20 is no exception to the rule that powerful sports vehicles don’t have outstanding gas mileage. The MC20 has a combined city/highway fuel economy of 15 mpg. That’s a slight improvement over the ratings of, say, the discontinued Mercedes-AMG GT, which got only 22 mpg on the interstate in its most fuel-efficient configuration. When we finally get the MC20 on our real-world highway fuel efficiency test route, we’ll report back with our findings.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Two people can enter through dihedral doors that open upward like a butterfly’s wings. The MC20’s cabin is simple and uncluttered, with only the most critical buttons placed on the dashboard. Leather seats with contrast stitching, metal pedals, and carbon fibre trim are just some of the high-end, sporty touches found within.
The MC20’s digital rear-view mirror, which is connected to a camera at the back of the vehicle, sends a live feed to a frameless mirror inside the car that is normally affixed to the windshield. There are currently on the market that provide a similar solution.
Infotainment and Connectivity
To date, Maserati has relied on rebadged versions of Fiat Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system; however, the MC20 will usher in the brand’s next-generation system, which will be powered by Google’s Android Automotive platform. Under the vents in the middle of the dashboard is a 10.3-inch touchscreen where the new interface is projected, and another 10.3-inch display acts as the instrument cluster.
