Maserati Unveils MC20 Icona and Leggenda: Celebrating 20 Years Since the Legendary MC12

Modena, 18 June 2024 – Maserati has launched two special series, the MC20 Icona and MC20 Leggenda, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the renowned MC12, which marked the Trident’s triumphant return to competitive racing in 2004 after a 37-year hiatus.

The MC12, initially released as a road version and destined to make its mark in GT championships, served as the inspiration for the Maserati MC20 super sports car. The MC20, introduced in 2020, heralded a new era for Maserati with its groundbreaking V6 Nettuno engine, fully crafted in Italy.

The limited-edition MC20 Icona and MC20 Leggenda series, restricted to 20 units each, feature unique liveries and exclusive elements inspired by the MC12 Stradale and MC12 GT1 Vitaphone, respectively.

The MC20 Icona’s design evokes the iconic MC12 Stradale of 2004, itself a tribute to the Maserati Trofeo Light’s design from the 24 Hours of Daytona, which drew inspiration from the Maserati Birdcage Type 61 of the late 1950s and early 1960s. The Bianco Audace Matte and Blu Stradale livery of the Icona, enhanced by the Fuoriserie personalization program, includes distinctive details such as the Maserati Fuoriserie logo and Italian flag emblem.

The Icona features silver hubcaps with a contrasting blue Trident logo, blue brake callipers, auto-dimming mirrors, and a carbon fiber engine cover. The chrome-plated wheels sport a specific Trident design, complementing the sophisticated customization options available.

The MC20 Leggenda, true to its name, sports a striking Nero Essenza and Digital Mint Matte livery, reflecting the colors of the award-winning MC12 GT1 under the Vitaphone Racing team. This car celebrated numerous victories, including three wins and two second-place finishes at the 24 Hours of Spa. The Leggenda features Nero Lucido trident wheels with Digital Mint hubcaps, a yellow Trident logo, and black brake callipers.

Both special series include racing interiors with lightweight 4-way monocoque racing seats and unique Trident embroidery. The Icona’s seats are Nero/Blu on a silver background, while the Leggenda’s are Nero on a silver background. Each car has a badge over the Nettuno engine cover, reading “ICONA. UNA DI 20” or “LEGGENDA. UNA DI 20,” respectively.

Shared features of both models include a high-end Sonus faber sound system, carbon fiber interior package, electronic limited-slip differential (E-LSD), suspension lifter, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection systems, and customized mats.

The MC20 Icona and MC20 Leggenda commemorate the start of a golden era for Maserati, kicked off by the legendary MC12 GT1, which notched 27 victories in the FIA GT Championships between 2004 and 2010. The MC12 also secured six Teams’ championships, five Drivers’ championships, and two Constructors’ championships for Maserati.

The 2004 MC12 Stradale, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and powered by a Ferrari-derived V12 engine, remains Maserati’s fastest production car, capable of reaching a top speed of 330 km/h and accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. Only 50 units of this model were produced.

The MC20 Icona and MC20 Leggenda continue the legacy of the MC12, embodying Maserati’s racing spirit and commitment to excellence, representing a symbolic passing of the baton from one generation to the next.
