Meet The Edo Maserati MC12 VC, A Real Race Car For The Street

Edo Competition has really built something special here.

Edo Competiton is a German tuner that only affixes its name to the most special of vehicles. Its latest project is a road-going version of the Maserati MC12 Corsa, which was a track-only version of the MC12, which itself was based on the Ferrari Enzo. Edo Competition became the official partner for Maserati S.p.A., and they jointly came up with the name edo MC12VC. VC stands for Versione Corse, or "racing version." The build uses parts from Maserati and the leading Maserati project manager, Maurizio Leschiutta, oversaw the project's specifications.

The specifications stipulated that the car only have slight changes from the race car, including: conforming to noise limits with an edo-Sport exhaust, adding the ability to refuel at a normal gas station (rather than pressure fueling), a front-end lift system, street-legal tires, door locks, street-legal headlights, and a new windshield with ventilation to prevent fogging. Basically, the car was built to be street-legal while retaining as much of the race car feel as possible. The process involved developing, manufacturing, altering, deconstructing, assembling, adjusting polishing and painting, and took over seven months to complete. The final step was applying the Victory Blue paint to the finished product.

The MC12VC is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 which produces 750 horsepower through a six-speed F1 paddle-shift transmission. A sprint from 0-60 mph takes three seconds and you can see that car in action at Hockenheim. This thing really sounds like an F1 car.

The MC12VC is a one-of-one, so unfortunately you won't be able to get one. Even if more were built, only the ultra-rich would be able to afford this special road-legal monster.
