First road-legal Maserati MC12 Versione Corse on saleEnlarge Photo
The Versione Corse features a modified version of the 6.0L V12 shared by Ferrari’s FXX supercar and develops a full 755hp (563kW) - up from 630hp (470kW) in the standard model - at 8,000rpm with maximum torque of 524lb-ft (710Nm) coming in at 6,000rpm. Accelerating to 100km/h takes just 3.8 seconds, while maximum speed is a lofty 326km/h. Drive is sent through a heavily revised version of the six-speed Cambiocorsa gearbox, which has been designed to offer faster gear changes.
This particular example features a build-plate signifying that it is in fact the first car in the limited production series, and anyone buying the car will be treated with special track days run by Maserati.
Other features of the car include an electronically controlled exhaust system, a data logging system, 19in alloys with modified fenders, an automatic air-jack, Alcantara trim, Brembo brakes and a central locking system.
