Maserati MC12 Winner

Designed to win races , the Maserati MC12 is sold as a road car , but has little practical. But what do you expect from a 620 bhp exotic car ? The car looks like sports car racing at all. To be fair , this is a true two-seater , while the race cars at Le Mans cars are more similar.

MC12 Only 25 were built in the beginning, and a number have been used for racing. In fact , when they learned of the construction of the Maserati MC12 for the GTA championship ( ooops , sorry to be sold as a road car , which was the official line , I think) other companies threatened to withdraw as they thought that the presence the MC12 on the starting grid would be a travesty of the whole series .

Although the Maserati MC12 is a true exotic car , which is based on the Ferrari Enzo . The idea was to improve the image of Maserati after an eventful history . The glory of the 50s , when Maserati was a regular winner of the Grand Prix , was lost in the mire of economic recession , when the company took the wrong way more than once.

As Ferrari and Maserati are both part of the Fiat group , and were actually in the same sub – group , it made sense to change the Enzo Maserati back as a winner. Now , Ferrari and Maserati have been different subgroups , so this kind of collaboration is not expected in the future.

Ferrari V – 12 with 622 hp

The Maserati MC12 is completely different from Enzo complex , however , with a long nose and long tail. When the angular Enzo , the MC12 is curved . It has a structure of carbon fiber body with front and rear subframe steel . Power comes from a 6.0 – liter V – 12 develops 622 hp @ 7,500 rpm and 480 lb.-ft. ( 652 Nm ) of torque @ 5,500 rpm. A semi Engine – competition to be sure. It is mated to a six-speed sequential semi -automatic , developed by Ferrari in the race.

The suspension is double wishbone , with the interior of the spring and dampers which act on impulse. They are mounted horizontally on the Enzo . The cushions are variable rate . All the vehicle , but not as extreme as the Bugatti Veyron or the Saleen S7 last .

Following the success of racing MC12 , Maserati is building a more extreme version – the MC12 Corsa. The MC12 Corsa has a massively reinforced engine Enzo V – 12 gives about 750bhp . You can get it for about $ 1.3 million – or £ 700,000 or 1 million, depending on where you live .

But this is not a road car , and will not be able to run on official categories – so this is a special outing for a huge discount . Maserati plans to build about 12 MC12 Corsa per year.
