Maserati has revealed a first special edition of its mid-engined MC20 supercar, created with a little help from David Beckham.
The new MC20 Notte is said to celebrate the ‘daring spirit that has always propelled the Trident forward’ and align the MC20 more closely with the Italian brand’s motorsport heritage.
Production of the MC20 Notte will be limited to 50 examples worldwide, with Maserati’s in-house Fuoriserie personalisation service adding the finishing touches to each car.
The rhythm of the night
Professional racing driver Andrea Bertolini has also been involved in development of the MC20 Notte. Along with winning the 2010 GT1 World Championship for Maserati, Bertolini serves as the company’s official test driver.
The MC20 Notte’s bodywork wears a distinctive matte black exterior finish, combined with matte white gold for the Maserati logo and badges. The 20-inch ‘Birdcage’ alloy wheels are also painted in matte black, with white gold detailing. Yellow brake calipers add a splash of contrast.
On the inside, the MC20 Notte comes equipped with power-adjustable sports seats upholstered in a combination of black and grey Alcantara. The grippy man-made suede material also covers the steering wheel, with carbon fibre inserts added. Yellow stitching breaks up the black theme, plus you’ll find a numbered plaque between the seats.
Spend it like Beckham
Maserati has left the MC20 mechanically untouched, which means a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine that develops 630hp. Zero to 62mph takes 2.9 seconds and top speed is in excess of 200mph.
As a global brand ambassador for Maserati, David Beckham recently opened the marque’s new flagship London area showroom, located in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. Speaking at the event, the former England football captain explained how his own MC20 was customised by Fuoriserie.
A new short film features both David Beckham and Andrea Bertolini, showing the Inter Milan CF owner’s MC20 being transformed into a Notte edition.
The MC20 Notte is available to order now. Maserati has not confirmed a price yet, but it will undoubtedly cost more than the £190,000 asked for the standard car. Buyers will be invited to a special on-track driving experience, too.
