Maserati MC20 Notte revealed

Maserati reveals glow-in-the-dark ‘blacked out’ special edition of its MC20 supercar

10 Nov 2023

MASERATI has rebirthed its two-year-old MC20 supercar, revealing a 50-run ‘Notte’ special edition centred around a ‘darkness’ design theme.


The MC20 Notte is being touted “a fierce creature of the nocturnal world” by Maserati, offering Bat Mobileaesthetics albeit more visible with distinct glow-in-the-dark magnetic matte ‘nero essenza’ paint.


Unique features of the Notte Edition include the lairish paint, matching 20-inch matte black ‘birdcage’ wheels, and white gold accents on the trident badge up front. 


Inside, black and grey Alcantara with yellow stitching covers the six-way adjustable seats, sport steering wheel and lashings of carbon fibre add even more flair to the limited run MC20. 


Sparked by the mystical and intense power of darkness, or so Maserati says, the Notte was a design collaboration between the Maserati Fuoriserie team and former GT1 world champion Andrea Bertollino.


“Fuoriserie means ‘custom-built’ in Italian, and our Trident’s customisation program is conceived to create one-of-a-kind rolling sculptures for our clients,” said Maserati head of design, Klaus Busse.


“MC20 Notte celebrates the thrill of racing and the allure of the night combining supreme performance and Italian elegance with a touch of mystery of the nocturnal world. 


“It is the first Fuoriserie limited edition of MC20 and it is dedicated to super sportscar collectors and track enthusiasts.”


While there are no performance upgrades for the Notte, the savagely powerful 3.0-litre V6 produces the same tyre torturing 470kW/730Nm, driving the rear wheels only, good for a 2.9-second run to 100km/h.


The F1-derived engine, dubbed the Nettuno, is a 90-degree V6 with race-proven features like pre-chamber combustion, twin-injection (direct and indirect), dry sump and 11:1 compression ratio, good for 8000rpm.


Maserati managed to squeeze a staggering 207hp/litre out of the Nettuno engine, while still meeting Euro 6D emissions standards, which when coupled with a vehicle weight of just 1500kg makes for an extremely quick machine. 


The ultra-lightweight carbon-fibre monocoque chassis weighs just 100kg, while carbon fibre also makes its way into the interior in a bid to keep kerb weight as low as possible.


To celebrate the launch of the highly exclusive special edition, Maserati brought together brand ambassador David Beckham and Andrea Bertolini in a ‘Race the Night’ short film celebrating the MC20 Notte. 


While no pricing details have been shared, Maserati says MC20 Notte will be “available worldwide”, suggesting a handful of examples will likely make their way into the garages of supercar-hungry Australians.


The standard MC20 is priced from a steep $438,000 before ORCs yet it was snapped up quickly by Australian buyers at the time of launch, so we can safely assume the special edition Notte might tip the half-a-million-dollar mark.
