The Maserati MC12 Corsa (or Versione Corse) is built to give a selected
number of Maserati clients a chance to test their driving capability on private
The track-only car is based on the MC12 GT1 which won the FIA GT1 Manufacturers Cup in 2005, the Teams Championship in 2005 and 2006, the Drivers Championship in 2006, and the 24 Hours of Spa in 2005 and 2006.
The production is limited to just 12 units (although three more units were made for publicity and testing purposes) and the car is not homologated to participate in any racing series. A single unit has been converted for road use.
Because it doesn't need to conform to any homologation restrictions, the MC12 Corsa outputs 745 hp, instead of the GT1 race car's 590 hp. It also uses a "Cambiocorsa" electro-actuated automatic gearbox instead of a manually operated sequential.
The MC12 Versione Corse is officially available in "Blue Victory" color, though the car's livery can be customized upon request. The lucky twelve owners can also opt for shock absorbers with manually adjustable calibration, data acquisition software, and yearly technical upgrades from the development team.
Maserati plans to start delivering the MC12 Corsas to their owners from December 2006 onwards.
