The soon-to-be-released Maserati MC20 will feature an interior crafted from the products of Italian firm Alcantara. According to the manufacturer, the interior look is the result of a joint partnership between designers at Centro Stile Maserati and Alcantara Complex Manufacturing.
Key applications for the company’s materials include seats and door panels, which are produced in laser-perforated black Alcantara – with a gradually decreasing gap between lines of perforations – on a contrasting backing in dark blue or metallic gray. Customers can also opt for tan Alcantara with metallic gray backing.
Alcantara-clad seats are claimed to give the driver a high degree of stability, even while experiencing high lateral accelerations. The material is said to be highly breathable, wear-resistant, lightweight and, above all, offers excellent grip. Alcantara says its material is unlike any other and is the result of proprietary technology coming from the hills of Umbria in the heart of Italy and exported worldwide.
