There’s a higher base price and more available safety equipment for the 2023 Maserati MC20, but the Italian brand says it’s sold out.

Pricing for the 2023 Maserati MC20 coupe has risen $29,000 compared to the 2022 model, and now starts at $467,000 before on-road costs and options.

This higher asking price now makes it only around $17,000 cheaper than the Ferrari F8 Tributo and around $31,000 cheaper than the Lamborghini Huracan EVO.

As previously detailed, Maserati has revealed a drop-top version of the MC20 called the MC20 Cielo which is priced from $528,000 before on-road costs.

Despite pricing going up for the MC20 coupe there are new standard features for the 2023 model year.

These new standard features include a carbon fibre engine cover, an Alcantara steering wheel with carbon fibre inserts and a new blue starter button, as well as a touch-sensitive 1.6-inch round drive mode selector.

There are also new 20-inch carbon fibre wheels and 20-inch ‘MMXX’ gloss black diamond cut alloy wheels available as an option.

Maserati has expanded the advanced driving assistance system (ADAS) safety suite, though it’s still only available as an optional extra.

New optional safety features include autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, surround-view camera, rear cross-traffic alert, auto-dimming side mirrors and traffic sign recognition.

Parking sensors, a rear-view camera and blind-spot monitoring were previously added as an option for the 2022 model year.

A new exterior paint colour, Grigio Incognitio, has been introduced to the MC20 range, as well as an Acquamarina paint colour that can optioned on the MC20 Cielo as part of the ‘Maserati Fuoriserie’ customisation program.

Another addition for 2023 model year is a “comprehensive maintenance programme” for three years. This will cover all logbook servicing requirements.

Production of the 2023 Maserati MC20 coupe will start in November 2022, and production of the 2023 Maserati MC20 Cielo spyder will start in January 2023.

Pricing

  • 2023 Maserati MC20 coupe: $467,000

All prices exclude on-road costs.

Engine

Both the 2023 Maserati MC20 and MC20 Cielo are powered by a 3.0-litre Nettuno twin-turbo V6 engine producing 470kW of power and 730Nm of torque.

It’s mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, with drive sent to the rear wheels only.

Maserati claims the MC20 coupe can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 2.9 seconds, and the MC20 Cielo spyder can do the 0-100km/h sprint in approximately 3.0 seconds.

Top speed for the MC20 coupe is more than 325km/h and top speed for the MC20 Cielo spyder is more than 320km/h.

Fuel Economy

Claimed combined cycle fuel economy for the 2023 Maserati MC20 coupe is 11.6L/100km.

Maserati hasn’t detailed official fuel economy figures for the MC20 Cielo spyder as of yet.

The MC20 has a 60L fuel tank and requires premium unleaded petrol.

Dimensions

The 2023 Maserati MC20 and MC20 Cielo both measure in at 4669mm long, 2178mm wide and 1224mm tall, with a 2700mm wheelbase.

The Maserati MC20 coupe weighs in at 1475kg, whereas the MC20 Cielo spyder tips the scales at 1540kg.

The Italian automaker claims that, despite the slight weight increase, the MC20 Cielo still “maintains the dynamic performance and driving pleasure of the coupe version”.

Both models are built on a body made of carbon-fibre and composite materials, but the MC20 Cielo has an electrically-retractable glass roof.

This glass roof can open and close in 12 seconds, and has an electrochromic function that allows it go from transparent to opaque with a push of a button. The BMW iX has a similar function with its fixed panoramic glass sunroof.
