Maserati has raised the black flag with the Maserati MC20 Notte, a vessel that steers the storied brand into the night with a limited edition that speaks volumes about its racing pedigree. With only fifty units casting shadows around the globe, this edition is not just a nod to the nighttime; it’s a celebration of the daring that has defined Maserati since its very first race.
The MC20 Notte, a term that whispers “night” in Italian, is a tribute to the pulse of darkness and the thrill it brings. This machine is not only dressed in an elegant coat of “nero essenza” matte black; it’s a magnetic force, designed to glow against the velvet of the night. The collaboration of the Maserati Fuoriserie team and Andrea Bertolini, Maserati’s faithful driver, has produced a creature that’s as seductive as it is powerful.
The beating heart of this beast is the V6 Nettuno engine, a powerhouse now wrapped in an aesthetic grandeur that reflects the intense power of its roar. Bertolini’s Midas touch has transformed the details of the MC20 Notte, from the signature Trident to the side logos, into a matte white gold, a subtle yet striking contrast that evokes memories of Maserati’s glorious motorsport history.
The Notte Edition doesn’t just claim the asphalt, it owns it, with 20″ matte black birdcage wheels accented in the same matte white gold. The brake calipers, veiled in black, add a whisper of menace to the car’s arresting stance.
Step inside and you’re greeted by 6-way power sport seats wrapped in black and gray Alcantara with yellow stitching that sings of craftsmanship and comfort. The carbon fiber inserts on the Alcantara sports steering wheel speak of the marriage of luxury and performance, while the exclusive ‘UNA DI 50’ badge is a constant reminder of the exclusivity that comes with being part of this limited cadre of owners.
Klaus Busse, the maestro behind Maserati design, sums up the essence of the MC20 Notte: “Our Fuoriserie program aims to create unique rolling sculptures that embody both supreme performance and Italian elegance, wrapped in the mystery of the nighttime world.”
The Maserati MC20 Notte was unveiled through a cinematic experience with David Beckham and Andrea Bertolini at the helm, showing the transformation of this already captivating car into a nocturnal predator, alive with the thrill of the race track.
