Maserati MC20 Gets Extra 800 Pounds Of Downforce With New Bodykit

Supercars / 8 Comments

*At 200 MPH.

7 Design House has unveiled a limited-run body kit for the Maserati MC20. The firm means it when it says "limited," as only 25 of these body kits for the Italian supercar will be produced. 7DH says the "entirety of the aero product design features a plug and play integration," which we take to mean that the kit will play nicely with the existing aero for the new MC20.

The firm says each of the new parts is installed onto the existing aero structure with OEM mounting points, essentially replacing any existing aero structure with the new kit. 7 Design House says the goal was to make a kit, which it calls "Aria," that needed no cutting, drilling, or paintwork.

The company's CEO, Peter Eskander, has confidence in his work. The MC20 pictured here isn't a customer's car. It belongs to Eskander. In all, the brand says the new body kit is comprised of seven new components: a front splitter, canards, vent inserts, side skirts, and a functional roof scoop. Around back, a rear spoiler and diffuser are also fitted.

Downforce, as commanded by physics, rises with speed. 7 Design House claims an additional 199 lbs of downforce at 100 mph, 509 lbs of downforce at 160 mph, and 795 lbs of downforce at 200 mph. Additionally, it claims 12.5 pounds of weight are left behind thanks to the prepreg carbon fiber parts.

"When designing MC20 ARIA, our objective was to inject racetrack aero, while maintaining a pure and elegant design. Each component of the kit improves performance and aesthetics while staying true to original design DNA," says CEO and founder Peter Eskander. "Our relentless pursuit of perfection is captured not only in our product's form and function, but in the OEM-grade quality, we deliver. Utilizing computational fluid dynamics, we developed an aero kit that achieves a 123% increase in aero efficiency," Eskander continues.

Eskander says that an optional "Stage 2" exhaust system is available for the car, which saves another 15 lbs. The kits aren't sold yet, and the company makes no mention of price, but if you have to ask...
