|The MC12 is the latest in a long line of supercars from iconic manufacturer, Maserati. It was designed as a homologation car for Maserati's return to international racing, and in 2005 a race car version won the FIA Manufacturer's Cup. Its sleek profile is only complemented by the historic Maserati white and blue paint scheme. Only 50 were produced. |
What the developers have to say about this Class S car: Stiff competition for the Enzo as a road car, and fiercer still when running race trim!

The MC12 is based on the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari. Maserati designed and built the MC12, codenamed the "Maserati MCC" during development, on the Enzo Ferrari's chassis, but the MC12 is much larger and has a lower drag coefficient. The MC12 was developed to mark Maserati's return to racing after 37 years. The MC12 GT1, a race car on which the MC12 road car would be based, succeeded in the FIA GT towards the end of the 2004 season.
The MC12 features a derivative of the Enzo Ferrari's 6.0 L (5,998 cc) F140 V12, codenamed M144A. The MC12 produces 624 hp (465 kW) and 480 ft·lb (651 N·m) of torque. The Maserati Cambiocorsa transmission used in the MC12 is a six-speed sequential semi-automatic transmission based on the one used in the Enzo. The MC12 also has a lower redline of 7,500 rpm with a fuel cutoff threshold of 7,700 rpm. The MC12 is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 8 seconds.
Maserati designed and built the MC12, codenamed the "Maserati MCC" during development, on the Enzo Ferrari's chassis, but the MC12 is much larger and has a lower drag coefficient. The MC12 was developed to mark Maserati's return to racing after 37 years. The MC12 is longer, wider, and taller and has a sharper nose and smoother curves than the Enzo Ferrari, which has faster acceleration, better braking performance (shorter braking distance), and a higher top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h) compared to the MC12's 205 mph (330 km/h).
The MC12 features a removable roof panel, allowing it to be a targa top supercar. Unlike the Enzo, the MC12 features no rear window.
