Carbon Fiber Aero Kit To Improve High-Speed Handling
The Maserati MC20 is a handsome car and we would be disappointed if the addition of the kit would bring in big changes. Perhaps, 7 Designs understands this too and has refrained from going berserk in terms of looks. The company noted that the initial plan was to make a full-body panel conversion kit for the Italian supercar. But, it shifted its focus to develop a kit that works with the original body.
The kit that 7 Designs has come up with consists of eight carbon fiber components and replaces only the unpainted parts of the MC20. These include:
- Front lip spoiler
- Canards on the front bumper
- Widened side skirt
- Carbon mirror covers
- Roof scoop
- Door fin accent
- Rear wing
- Rear diffuser
These components give the factory look a little more aggression without hampering the original design. The thin, deep lip spoiler at the front increases downforce at higher speeds, while the pair of canards on the bumper guide the airflow to the corners for increased stability. The diffuser helps create a smooth slipstream while reducing the drag at the rear. The wing also helps generate downforce at high speeds.
What’s The Maserati MC20 All About?
Maserati marked its return to the supercar fold with the MC20 in September 2020. This is the company’s fourth mid-engined car and is touted as a spiritual successor to the MC12, although it shares no similarities with it, other than the grille, to some extent. If you’re a fan of subtle, plain-Jane designs, the MC20 will please you. It will be offered in six different colors.
The MC20 is powered by a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V-6 engine that churns out 621 horses and 538 pound-feet of torque.
Power is sent to the wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. It takes just 2.9 seconds to sprint to 60 mph from rest and will have a top speed of over 202 mph.
Every component will come with a gloss carbon fiber weave. Wheel options to complement the kit will also be launched along with the kit. The company mentioned it will build only 25 of these kits for the MC20. The price hasn’t been announced, but expect it to cost a bomb given the exclusivity.
