Only 65 will be made.
To set it apart from the standard Cielo drop-top, the PrimaSerie comes with distinctive exterior and interior elements.
The PrimaSerie is finished in three-layer Acquamarina paint. According to Maserati, the PrimaSerie harnesses Neptunian power. Some prime marketing speak right there, but it fits in with the trident theme Maserati's been using for years. As long as it doesn't come standard with Amber Heard, we're good.
Speaking of the famous trident, the Maser's famous badges are finished in matte white gold, and they have the PrimaSerie logo lasered on. To complete the limited-edition look, this Cielo comes standard with 20-inch forged alloy wheels in a color that contrasts beautifully with the light blue body.
On the inside, it comes standard with Ice Alcantara leather seats with Aquamarina stitching. The pattern on the seats is also unique to this car, and the PrimaSerie logo is stitched into the headrests. The light interior contrasts nicely with the carbon fiber trim and black dashboard.
The most striking feature is arguably the trident emblem painted on the tonneau cover which hides the roof. Underneath the cover, you'll find the same polymer-dispersed Liquid Crystal glass roof from the regular MC20 Cielo that can go from clear to opaque at the touch of a button. The aesthetic upgrades end there, but overkill is not what the designers were aiming for here.
Mechanically, the car is the same as the standard Cielo. It has Maserati's Nettuno twin-turbo V6 producing 621 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque. Maserati claims it can sprint to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, so we guestimate a 0-60 mph time of roughly 2.7 seconds. The top speed is just over 200 mph.
Since the Cielo is built around a carbon tub, it loses none of the MC20's structural rigidity. And as for weight, the penalty for having a million miles of headroom is just 143 pounds.
We estimate the Cielo will retail for around $240,000, and you can add at least $50,000 to that price considering how few PrimaSeries models Maserati intends to build.
