2023 Maserati MC20 Cielo verdict and specs

Convertible version of Maserati's flagship sports car combines thrilling performance with the ability to top up your tan. But how usable is it on UK roads?...

There’s a lot to like about the Maserati MC20 Cielo. You get the supercar looks and theatre, an incredible amount of pace and a thrilling drive that’s relatively easy to access on our roads. 

It’s by no means a slouch, but the inclination to ease off a notch and enjoy what the car offers at a more relaxed pace with the roof down adds another facet to its abilities. 

You’ll have to pay for it, though, and our test car came with more than £70,000 worth of options (slightly more than the equivalent price of a mid-spec Maserati Grecale Modena). They included the near-£10,000 Rosso Vincente red paint and Exterior Carbon Pack costing more than £36,000.
