The Maserati MC12 is easily the most desirable Maserati since the brand’s mid – 20th century heydays. Built as a homologation special for Maserati to compete in the FIA GT championship, only 50 road going examples were made between 2004 and 2005. Based largely on the Ferrari Enzo’s chassis and mechanicals, the Maserati MC12 got its unique body design from Frank Stephenson, with only the windscreen carried over from the Ferrari. The 6.0-litre V12 was slightly detuned and the manual transmission was carried over unchanged. The MC12 was far more track focused than the Enzo and featured stronger aero capabilities. This meant that while the Enzo was quicker to 60 mph (96 kmph) and had a higher top speed, the MC12 was tested to have better performance on track. This particular Maserati MC12 is one of the last few to have left the factory, has been regularly serviced and has been driven for 12,000 km only since new. It is up for grabs at RM Sotheby’s Paris 2018 auction. You can click here to know more. Photos: Peter Singhof courtesy RM Sotheby’s
