MILAN, Italy, Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Maserati has chosen Alcantara® for the interior of its recently unveiled MC20 supercar. The "Made in Italy" luxury material is used to dress the car's seating, as well as on its headliner, door pillars, side panels, steering wheel and instrumental panel. Alcantara offers a significant weight savings compared to other materials. It also is the material of choice for many car makers because it provides a variety of cutting-edge solutions that allow for a high degree of customization by combining style and technology with beauty and functionality. Car and Driver magazine recently reported that the MC20 is expected to appear in North American dealerships next year with a price starting at about $195,000.
