Only 25 fast car MC12 model, built in 2004 and 25 in 2005. Only the luckiest sports cars and super fans pick their own are able to get one of the beauties of exotic cars.
Maserati has designed a new road from the Grand Tourer known as the MC12 GT racing version has been developed. The result is that 37 long years, the last win the international championship (1967, Cooper Maserati F1 Grand Prix of South Africa), the Trident is returning to the track. Designed for road use, can exceed 330 mph in kmh/205 full speed, running from 0 to 100 kmh in just 3.8 seconds. While it is easy and fun to drive on the road, the car also brilliantly dynamic MC12. It handles very well and carefully, but the driver can still feel the power of a race that the basement very athletic. The new model adds the final step to get back on track after recent debut Maserati and very successful career in the 24 Hours of Daytona, Trophy light. Under the guidance of engineer Giorgio Ascanelli, Maserati’s Racing Division is developing a new car to meet the rules of international competitions.
Customers using the street version will be available exclusively in white and blue uniform, dating back to an old Trident tradition. In fact, the blue and white are the colors of the American Camoradi (Casner Motor Racing Division) Scuderia which raced the famous Maserati Tipo 60-61 nest in early 1960 with Stirling Moss as their lead driver. About 30 MC12 is built at all, would be 25 to use the road with the second group of 25 examples of clients scheduled for production in 2005. Proud of the signing of the Trident is located in the center of the grille, inform the world that the rear of Maserati in the construction business in a very serious sports car. Except that the MC12 is also heavily advertised in the signal effect to international companies compete in a sports car (see box). As the road version of the latest GT racing car, this car is only in this way does not affect the general public, but to pave the way for the pilot sample.
In this sense, time constraints, the production of the nose, roof mounted central air intake and do not take prisoners in line all the more plausible. Built entirely of carbon fiber, the body that MC12 is the first function, the second form. As the Saleen S7 also proportional to (another super-race twins), provides the outline with the encouragement he needed significant competition high-downforce/low-drag high speed aerodynamics. As a bonus, the MC12 also features a removable hardtop became an interesting spider. Conventional doors open (no scissors-type antics of this supercar) and prepare an interior that can only come from Maserati. Work with the configuration of the cabin as base Enzo, MC12 with stock carbon and Nomex honeycomb tub, designer Frank Stephenson has created a spectacular mix of sport and elegance. This comes as exotic, but very livable. Once comfortable on the inside, there is not much in the proximity of many exotic print.
Unlike the Enzo, which is surrounded by carbon fiber, the Maserati booth presents the material more sparingly, rather cleverly combines leather, aluminum and fabric BrighTex very hip-looking, which originally came from the fashion industry. Front and center a large tachometer silver large, almost a comic character that will soon prove invaluable once a year. The seats and steering wheel from a piece of Enzo, but once again, receive a treatment that is more discreet. The overall effect is a strange soft blue leather and carbon fiber in an odd sort of way.
