Driving a convertible in Singapore’s tropical weather takes a special brand of tenacity. The weather is unforgivingly sunny for days on end, giving way only to a torrential downpour that doesn’t let up at times. But Maserati’s MC20 Cielo roadster might just change how you drive.
Like the MC20 before it, this stunning Italian spyder is packed to the gills with a kit befitting of a super sports car – including the V6 3.0-litre Nettuno engine developed by Maserati under the hood. It’s capable of putting out 730Nm through the convertible’s rear wheels, yielding a century sprint of around three seconds and a top-end speed of over 320 km/h (despite weighing 65kg more than the MC20 coupe).
Egress is made easy with folding butterfly doors that give way to ice-coloured leather and Alcantara upholstery lined with aquamarine stitching. Other new niceties include extra safety systems, like an autonomous emergency brake, an all-around camera and traffic sign information. It can also be fitted with a premium 12-speaker audio system.
Like its predecessor, MC20 Cielo’s are made in their entirety at the brand’s plant in Viale Ciro Menotti, Modena in Italy. Expect the vehicle to be available by early 2023.
