7 Designs Can Make Your Maserati MC20 Look Faster Than It Is
Maserati invested a lot of effort and resources into getting the MC20 right. After all, it has big shoes to fill as many see it as a spiritual successor for the bonkers MC12. However, in designing the MC20, Maserati took back some of the aggressiveness flaunted by the MC12. This is where 7 Designs stepped in and patched things up
The kit – known as Aria and limited to just 25 units – comes to work on the MC20’s fluid lines and turn them into something a little meaner. As a result, the package looks like a track-only version of the MC20 and that’s a good thing. You’ve got your new front splitter, two side canards, carbon fiber mirror housings, and reworked side skirts. It basically looks like an out-and-out race car from every angle.
The rear end is even more aggressive thanks to a fixed carbon wing, a cheeky diffuser, aero fins, and a new bumper. To complete the treatment, the tune threw in a set of aftermarket wheels. We don’t know whether these additional bits and bobs attachable to the MC20’s body work towards improving its aerodynamic ability, but that could very well be the case.
We also don’t know how much 7 Designs is asking for their trouble of souping-up the MC20, nor whether they plan to offer any sort of performance upgrades to the MC20’s 3.0-liter, 621-horsepower, twin-turbo V-6. With so many tuners out there, it’s likely that if 7 Designs doesn’t make a move on the powertrain, others will surely jump to the opportunity.
