An early prototype of Maserati’s MC20 convertible supercar has been unveiled outside of the manufacturer’s Modena Plant in Italy.

Sporting a blue-and-white cloud-like camouflage, the MC20 convertible is the first drop-top of the MC20 line. Like the coupe, the body is made of carbon fiber and composite materials. Maserati claims the total weight to be approximately 1500 kg (3307 lbs.)

The MC20 is powered by the first “Nettuno” engine-- a 3.0-liter V6, creating 630 horsepower. The powerplant, combined with the MC20’s lightweight materials, mid-engine/ rear-wheel drive design and eight-speed automatic transmission, allows for a 0-100 km/h (approximately 0-60 mph) time of 2.9 seconds. Top speed is 325 km/h, approximately 202 mph.

Acceleration and handling are complemented by a mechanical or optional electronic limited-slip differential, as well as an optional suspension lifter. This allows the MC20 to clear obstacles when needed and lower itself for performance. Four different driving modes allow the driver to cater the experience to road conditions and their own needs.

The interior of the MC20 is outfitted with digital instrumentation and infotainment, with an optional Sonus faber High-Premium Audio System. The seats, dash and transmission tunnel are made of carbon fiber, leather and Alcantara materials. This theme is carried over to the butterfly wing doors.

Maserati plans to continue the MC20 line with the coupe, convertible, and future electric models.
