We stumble across the Maserati MC12, the company’s 330kph supercar, at the AUH Motorsport facility in Dubai, UAE. Only 25 of the 30 MC12 models built made it onto the roads.
“Ooh, a Ferrari Enzo.” Now stop that! Yes, the Maserati MC12 is a derivative of the Ferrari, and was developed while big brother was in charge of the coffers.
That still doesn’t shy away from the fact that the MC12 is a serious piece of kit: you have to be if you fancy competing at the front of the FIA GT1 Championship grid. So as well as the unarguably swanky body, there’s a stonking great 6.0-litre V12 bolted down that chucks the Trident badge towards the horizons at a furious number of knots. If you’re feeling brave (and can fit) behind the wheel, you’ll hit 330kph.
Road-going spots may be a little tricky (we actually found this example at AUH Motorsport’s GHQ in Dubai, UAE), since only 25 were developed to receive tax discs.
