Perfection Is a Maserati MC20 With the MC12's Livery

Twenty years ago, Maserati made a grand return to motorsports with the MC12, a move that ended nearly four decades of absence from the racing scene. To celebrate this milestone, Maserati has unveiled two special edition models of the MC20: the MC20 Icona and the MC20 Leggenda. These models pay homage to the legendary MC12 with distinctive appearance packages that are as striking as they are nostalgic. The MC20 Icona stands out with its iconic two-tone white and blue paint, drawing direct inspiration from the MC12 Stradale. The color scheme, specifically Bianco Audace Matte with Blue Stradale, gives the car a bold and classic look reminiscent of its racing predecessor. This combination not only highlights the MC20’s sleek design but also evokes the spirit of the MC12's glorious past on the racetrack.
