The Maserati MC12: The car that Changed the Game of GT Racing

The Maserati MC12 is a supercar based on the Ferrari Enzo that was produced by Maserati between 2004 and 2005. The 6.0-liter V12 engine generates 481 pound-feet of torque and 621 horsepower. It has a top speed of 205 mph and can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds.

The history of the Maserati MC12 in racing is impressive. It was built for racing and took home multiple FIA GT series championships. In 2004, it made its FIA GT Series debut, winning the first race at the Zhuhai International Circuit. It ruled the FIA GT series for several seasons, winning 22 of the 28 races it started, earning six drivers’ and seven teams’ championships. In 2005, it again participated in the American Le Mans Series, but its size and weight presented some challenges. A more extreme variation of the MC12 known as the MC12 Corse was also created and marketed to private clients only for track use only.
