Maserati MC20 Icona and Leggenda: the most anticipated editions

The Maserati MC20 is that car that has returned the illusion to the brand’s most loyal fans. It is a super sports car with a newly developed V6 engine in a central position and a very elaborate design. So much so that the trident brand has taken advantage of its launch to make a nod to the past and also celebrate the 20th anniversary of its return to competition. They do so with the Maserati MC20 Icona and Legendawhich could be the most anticipated editions considering their configuration.

In 2004, Maserati returned to competition after 37 years off the scene with the MC12, probably its most iconic model so far this century. It is the specimen that inspired the MC20 and that is why they have chosen Dress him in some of his most legendary colors. It must be made clear that it is impossible to surpass the 27 GT1 category victories that they achieved in that period and that the V12 engine that marked an era will not return either. It is rather a tribute on an aesthetic level for the golden era of Maserati on the circuits.

If we start with the Maserati MC20 Icona that is on the cover image, it is dressed in the livery of the 2004 MC12 Stradale. Thanks to the Fuoriserie customization programits body is dyed in the colors White Audace Matte and Blu Stradalewith the trident logo on the side and the Italian flag on the door. This edition, which bears the style of the Maserati Trofeo Light of the 60s, has some specific chrome rims with silver wheel covers with blue logo, as well as the brake calipers. The cover of the 3.0-litre V6 Nettuno engine is made of carbon fibre.

For its part, the MC20 Leggenda has the livery of the MC12 GT1 from the Vitaphone Racing team, which was the one that took three victories and two runners-up finishes in the 24 Hours of Spa. He is perfectly recognizable by his bodywork in Nero Essenza and Digital Mintmattein addition to rims and calipers in black or with the trident in yellow in various points on the exterior.

In both special editions, the choice is made for a interior inspired by racingwith sports seats and four-point harnesses. Their colours and decoration change, but the essence is the same. On the engine plate there is also an inscription with Icona or Leggenda, depending on the model, and a number plate. And that is because Only 20 units will be made of each model, their prices still pending confirmation.
