MC12 Essen Show
It was in 2004 that Maserati returned to international competition with a car designed by Giugiaro and developed in collaboration with Dallara: the MC12
The monocoque chassis made of carbon fiber and aluminum accommodates the V12 from the Ferrari Enzo, 6 liters for 630 hp at 7,500 rpm.
Ferrari, occupied by F1 gives way to Maserati to race in FIA GT.
50 examples of this wild beauty will be built and will win 22 races in this series and 3 in the 24h of Spa. It has won the FIA GT championship five years in a row: 2006/2007/2008/2009 and 2010.
Despite this predestination for racing, the stradale version is approved for road and everyday driving.
