Earth shattering sound and performance coupled with inspired handling and design makes the MC12 Corsa a leading supercar and worthy of its price tag.
One of the most exceptional beasts to have ever surfaced from Maserati's stables is currently up for sale. The MC12 heralded Maserati's return to the racing scene after a 37-year hiatus, developed from the 2005 FIA GT Manufacturer's Cup-winning MC12 GT1. Only 50 of the 55 models built were made available to customers, making it far more exclusive than the Ferrari Enzo on which it was based; while only fifteen hardcore variants, the MC12 Corsa, were released in 2006 intended solely for racetrack use.
Three of these were produced for testing and publicity, and the remaining twelve sold to valued Maserati customers who were restricted to using it on track days as it wasn't homologated for street use. However, this particular model, chassis #01, has been modified and certified for use on public roads. Its breathtaking beauty belies a monstrous 6.0-liter V12 engine producing 745hp, a top speed of 330kmh and the capacity to accelerate from 0-200kmh in just 6.4 seconds. Modifications include a catalytic convertor and silencer and an adapted fuel system for use with gas pumps.
The chassis has been raised to increase the car's ground clearance and four wheel -lifting motors have been added to make speed humps a simple formality. Trimmed in Black Alcantara and user friendly, this black beauty will wipe the floor with a Bugatti and is arguably a better investment car than the McLaren F1. Anyone with a spare one million Euros should act fast and give this rare supercar a new home; it's currently being offered at Mobile.de.
