Italian automaker Maserati has presented an open version of the MC20 sports car, which is clearly called Cielo, meaning “sky”. It has a retractable hard roof, hidden in the space behind the heads of the crew.
However, in order not to be deprived of the sky even with the ceiling extended, it has a glass panel, which can be made electrically transparent when the button is pressed. There is a slight drawback in terms of visibility – instead of the glass pane that shows the engine in the cabin, there is an opaque fairing with a giant trident.

The rest isn’t much different from the coupe, which means the 630K six-cylinder which drives the rear wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and a self-locking differential. However, the target is 65 kg heavier than the coupe, so it takes 3 seconds, one tenth slower for a hundred, 9.2 seconds and four tenths for two hundred.
The car manufacturer stated that the maximum limit is “more than 320 km / h”, which is 5 km / h less than the coupe. On the other hand, what has not changed is the luggage volume – the front is still 50 liters, and the rear is 100 liters.

There are wheels with a Roman numeral-inspired look or carbon wheels that save a total of 30kg, or a steering wheel with a wreath covered in Alcantara, and the parts can be upholstered in carbon upon request. Also worth noting is the control of the driving mode and suspension characteristics with a touch screen, which changes what the handle is currently controlling.
Also worth noting is the blue Acquamarina that appears in piece in the posted photos. It belongs to the introductory Prima series, where about 60 cars will be built, and outside it is also available in the special Fuoriserie customization program.
Cielo, like the coupe, is produced entirely in Modena, Italy. What is not known yet are the prices and the start date of the sale.
