The Maserati MC12 is a full-on future classic. Maserati’s race car for the road was met with mixed reviews when it was launched in 2004. However, there was no denying as a race car, the MC12 was very competitive indeed, winning the FIA GT Championship in 2005, which also include their win at the 2005 24 Hours of Spa in Belgium.
With this domination on the track, Maserati also produced 12 Versione Corsa variants of the MC12 GT1 for their most valued clients to let rip on whichever track they desire. This one, the eighth one built, is now up for grabs through Girado and Co. Price is on application but expect it to be seven figures and then some.
Anyway, back to the car. This MC12 Versione Corsa was built in 2007, and looks epic. In fact, as far as MC12’s go, it is pretty cool to see the flagship Trident sporting a more flamboyant paint scheme.
A development of the MC12GT1, it is just as hardcore as the race car, and the 6.0L Enzo derived V12 produces a whopping 755HP, 150 more than the GT1 car and 110hp more than the road going MC12 Stradale.
With a six-speed sequential Cambriocorsa gearbox, carbon ceramic brakes, a no frills race prepared interior, and weighing at a snip over 1100kg thanks to a carbon fibre tub, this Maser is the ultimate track focused trident.
With the new Maserati MC20 Supercar well on the way, those who are itchy to have a Maserati with the kind of acceleration which can rearrange your fillings, might want to give this one a look. However, it might pay to have your own racetrack and a bit of dough behind you first.
