Maserati MC20 Cielo made its North American debut at The Quail - a motorsports gathering held in California. The Quail is a major part of Monterey's prestigious “Car Week" where the luxury Italian brand Maserati showcased its open-top version of the super sports car. Along with the MC20 Cielo, other showcases from the brand included the Grecale Trofeo performance SUV and the MC20 Coupé super sports car.

The Maserati MC20 Cielo comes equipped with the state-of-the-art V6 Nettuno engine as well as a retractable glass roof - first in the convertible segment. The glass roof can be instantly transformed from clear to opaque at the touch of a button. For this, the roof employs Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology that provides it with a multi-faceted driving experience.

At the heart of the Maserati MC20 Cielo is the Nettuno engine - a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 that delivers 630 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 730 Nm of torque at 3,000-5,500 rpm. Maserati's Nettuno is the first engine intended for a road car to use an innovative pre-chamber combustion system with twin spark plugs, a technology derived from Formula 1 competitions.

The MC20 Fuoriserie, on the other hand, in corse red, bold gloss white and emerald green livery is a part of the Maserati Fuoriserie customisation programme.
