Maserati MC Edition 2022.

Three Maserati models have received a special MC Edition.

Maserati Grecale crossover is delayed until at least the spring, so for now the company is drawing attention to another special version of the existing models.

Parkett Levante and sedans Ghibli and Quattroporte are offered in the new MC Edition, called to remind about sports history of the brand.

In fact, the acronym MC in this case stands for Maserati Corse («racing Maserati»).

The differences of the new special edition are reduced to a decorative design. There is a choice of two colors of the body, taken from the coat of arms of Modena, where the headquarters of Maserati is located: this glossy bright yellow Giallo Corse and matte dark blue Blu Vittoria.

Black décor has been added, the brake calipers are painted blue, and the front fenders have nameplates with the version name.

The sedans have 21-inch wheels, the crossovers have 22-inch wheels.

Salons of MC Edition are decorated with dark blue carbon fiber, and blue and yellow stitching is «scattered» around the interior.

The headrests are embroidered with branded tridents and the name of the special edition, and there is a commemorative plaque on the center tunnel.

A sunroof and Bowers & Wilkins audio system are included as standard equipment.

MC Edition is available only for cars with the most powerful V8 3.8 twin-turbo engine in the range (580 hp).

The exception is made only for the market of China, where there is no such engine: there MC Edition cars are offered with V6 3.0 biturbo engine (350 hp).

It is also possible to order Maserati in a special MC Edition in Russia, but only the crossover Levante Trofeo is available here among all three.

Such car will cost almost 18 million rubles.

Maserati in Russia: sedans will come back, novelties will be delayed.

Maserati has renewed its activity on the Russian market. The fact is that the previous Vehicle Type Approval (VTA) for cars of this brand expired back in 2019: the certificate for the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans expired in September, and for the Levante crossover — in December.

Since then, the cars have not been delivered to Russia, and dealers have been selling off leftovers from the warehouse formed before the expiration of the documents. But last year the situation changed.

In spring reception of orders for crossovers Maserati Levante has been resumed, though the new OTTS was issued only in December.

It is valid till the end of 2024 and allows delivering to Russia not only the former versions with V6 engines (275-430 hp).

Fresh Levante Hybrid with two-liter turbo four (330 hp) and 48-volt starter-generator, and also versions with V8 3.8 engine (550 or 598 hp) are entered in the document in addition.

Crossovers are already on sale at the price from 9,2 million rubles, and both «soft» hybrids and diesel versions are available.

However, it is not yet clear what the further development of the Maserati brand in the Russian market will be.

Although the company is a part of the Stellantis concern, but its Russian representative office does not deal with the Maserati brand.

The Italian company has three active dealers-importers (in Moscow, the Moscow region and Yekaterinburg) and the applicant for the Levante certification, as before, was the company Vintrade, which is a part of the Mercury holding (it also owns one of the dealer centers).

The dealers we interviewed told us, that deliveries of other models are not planned in the nearest future. Resumption of orders for sedans Ghibli and Quattroporte (which have been in production for nine years) is scheduled for the end of this year only.

A new Maserati MC20 supercar is not expected in the next year either as there are no quotas for Russia.

Sellers have high hopes for the «younger» Maserati Grecale crossover, but information about deliveries to Russia will only appear after the official premiere, which after several postponements is expected this spring.
