Maserati marks the 20th anniversary of its return to racing with a tribute through two special editions of the MC20 supercar: the MC20 Icona and MC20 Leggenda. Both models pay homage to the iconic MC12 GT1, a celebrated racer from the early 2000s.

The MC20 Icona features a striking two-tone livery reminiscent of the MC12 Stradale road car, blending Bianco Audace matte white with Blu Stradale, accented by blue trident logos and brake calipers on chrome-plated wheels.

The MC20 Leggenda, inspired by the MC12 GT1 Vitaphone race car, showcases a bold combination of Nero Essenza and Digital Mint matte paints, complemented by yellow trident logos and black brake calipers.

Under the hood, both editions retain the MC20’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine, delivering 621 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque. This power propels the cars from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering 3.2 seconds, showcasing their performance credentials akin to the legendary MC12 despite having fewer cylinders.

Inside, the MC20 Icona features four-way monocoque racing seats in blue and silver, while the MC20 Leggenda opts for a black and silver scheme, each emphasizing sportiness and luxury. Each car bears a carbon-fiber engine cover with a commemorative plaque marking its exclusivity—only 20 units of each model will be produced globally, denoted by inscriptions “ICONA. UNA DI 20” or “LEGGENDA. UNA DI 20.”

Maserati’s decision to limit production pays tribute to the anniversary’s significance, guaranteeing that these models will be coveted by collectors and enthusiasts. While specific pricing remains undisclosed, it is expected that the MC20 Icona and Leggenda will surpass the base MC20’s starting price of $242,995.

This premium reflects their unique design, rarity, and profound historical connection to Maserati’s racing legacy. These special editions exemplify Maserati’s dedication to combining performance, craftsmanship, and nostalgia, appealing strongly to Trident brand enthusiasts and global motorsport aficionados alike.
