Well, Joe Walsh's
Maserati may have done 185, but the Maserati MC12 can do
so much more. The Maserati MC12 will clock out at 205 mph and
go from 0 - 60 mph in around 3.7 seconds. While criticized for
being too large and lacking some common features, the Maserati
MC12 makes up for it with styling, performance and a luxurious
interior that few other supercars can offer.
With a cool
price tag of around $800,000, the Maserati MC12 touts a 6.0 liter
V-12 engine that is basically the same as that in the Ferrari
Enzo. The Maserati MC12's engine generates 630 hp and 657 Nm
called the MC12 a grand tourer designed for long-distance driving.
And, because of the luxurious and comfortable interior one can see
their point. But, the Maserati MC12 is a heavy-duty, street legal
racecar as well as one can tell by only a cursor look at this bad-ass
stated that the car is too large, there is no place to put the targa
roof and the vehicle comes with no radio or stereo system. But,
what the Maserati MC12 lacks in the incidentals it makes up for
in raw power and passion.
In 2004 - 2005,
only 50 Maserati MC12's were produced, making this one of the rarest
of production exotic cars in recent
years and one of the most sought after as well. After Maserati dropped
out of racing for the past 37 years, the MC12 supercar has been
Maserati's prominent symbol that they are making a comeback.
In fact, the
Maserati MC12 GT1 won the 2005 FIA GT Manufacturers Cup. Because
of this, Maserati announced the limited production of the MC12 Corsa,
a $1.7 million, track-only supercar for a select number of clients.
The Maserati MC12 Corsa delivers a whopping 755 hp, enough the satisfy
even the most adrenaline-deprived thrill seeker.
With the MC12,
Maserati is sure to recapture much of its old clientele and develop
a few new high-profile supercar enthusiasts as well.
