Maserati Unveils Its First Limited Edition MC20: The "Notte"

Maserati has introduced its first limited edition example of the MC20, a sleek edition of 50 that it’s calling the “Notte.”Inspiration for this special edition is drawn from the brand’s audacious legacy, with the vehicle designed to channel the adrenaline of legendary races past, present and future.

The MC20 “Notte” — Italian for “night” — is an embodiment of nocturnal mystique and the intense allure of darkness. Its design was created in collaboration with Maserati reference driver and former GT1 world champion Andrea Bertolini and features a matte “nero essenza” finish that is made to shine even in the lowest of lights. Bertolini’s “Midas touch” is exemplified in the matte white gold detailing on the Trident logo, side insignias and the Maserati script, a nostalgic nod to the brand’s motorsport history.

Bertolini’s influence further extends to the 20-inch matte black birdcage wheels adorned with matte white gold accents and black brake calipers that feature a sleek, predatory stance on the road. The interior is equally as attractive, with 6-way power sport seats in Alcantara black and grey, complemented by contrast yellow stitching, carbon fiber inserts on the Alcantara sport steering wheel and the signature Trident on the headrests. Each MC20 Notte boasts an exclusive metal plate and a “UNA DI 50” plaque, denoting its specific serial number and accentuating its rarity.

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

To mark the vehicle’s debut, global brand ambassador Maserati joined Andrea Bertolini for a special teaser film that shows the “Notte” in action, which you can view below.

Following an exclusive preview for Maserati Tridente members, the MC20 Notte is now available for super sports car collectors and track aficionados worldwide — with price and availability available upon request via Maserati’s official channels.
