The Maserati MC12 Corsa - only 12 will be built, hence the name.

The MC12 Corsa is a build-to-order supercar for a very selected number of Maserati clients to test their driving capability in the most exclusive gentlemen drivers? environment.

The MC12 Corsa has been developed from the MC12 GT1 type which won the 2005 FIA GT Manufacturers Cup.

It will be used exclusively on track during private test sessions - or exhibition activities organised by Maserati. It will not be homologated for road use or for any racing activity.

The Maserati MC12 Corsa - living testimony of Maserati's ability to individually tailor make specially produced cars of the highest technological content - will be on sale at the price of 1-million Euros (plus tax) later this year.

The car was designed in a joint operation between the Maserati engineers and those of Ferrari's racing department under the technical direction of engineer Giorgio Ascanelli and overall leadership by Gestione Sportiva managing director Jean Todt.

The V12 has a displacement of 5 998 cc and produces over 560 kW.

The sweeping, aerodynamic body rests on a carbon-fibre chassis that weighs 1 100 kg. Push rod suspension in steel and tyres by Pirelli complete the hardware.

Not for racing - the Maserati MC12 Corsa

Available in the official Maserati 'Blue Victory' colour, it can be personalised upon request with several option items, starting with a different colour upon request by the client.

Total production of the Maserati MC12 Corsa will not exceed 12 units worldwide.
