One-off

Maserati MC12 Is A Blacked-Out One-Off Masterpiece

Jut 50 were made, only one looked like this.

Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and Frank Stephenson (the now McLaren head of design), the Maserati MC12 was built on the Ferrari Enzo’s platform, using the iconic supercar’s 6.0-liter V12 powerplant detuned to 625 horsepower. Mated to a paddle-shifted Cambiocorsa six-speed transmission that sent power to the rear wheels, the MC12 is one of the most capable supercars ever made, sprinting from zero to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and hitting a top speed of 205 mph.

This particular example is one of just fifty ever made and the only one finished in Metallic Black. The other 49 were completed in white with blue accents. The interior blends blue leather with carbon fiber and a material called “Brightex,” which apes the woven appearance of carbon fiber but is soft to the touch. With just 1,300 kilometers on the clock, Mecum expects a bid of $1.8 million to $2 million when the MC12 crosses the Monterey auction block next week.
