With a carbon-fiber structure, a hellacious 621-hp twin-turbo V-6, and neck-wrenching cornering power, the 2023 Maserati MC20 is an exotic street car that smacks you in the face with a race-car driving experience. Its slinky Italian-esque supercar shape and butterfly-style doors have passers-by staring at it just like they do at Ferraris and Lamborghinis. The new Cielo spyder allows for open-air cruising—and being seen—at the touch of a button. Like many a supercar, though, the MC20 comes with its own specific set of drawbacks. While its suspension is compliant enough for the occasional road trip, the car’s cargo capacity is minuscule; you’ll need your administrative assistant to follow you with your luggage. Maserati also offers virtually no driver-assistance features on the MC20; there’s no adaptive cruise control or lane-keeping assist. So be it. From the view out the windshield to its cacophony of wild engine sounds to its butt-kicking performance, the MC20 is made for hard-core enthusiast drivers with the money to indulge themselves in a car with overwhelming character.
