We like what we see but never thought the MC20 needed this sort of spicing

There’s always room for better. This is the philosophy of every tuner out there and New York’s 7 Designs confirms the creed with a brand new tuning kit for Maserati’s MC20 sports car.

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.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
