Maserati's Ferrari Enzo-based MC12s are finished are heading for their owners. A handful of the 25 road-going 630bhp V12s will come to the UK, capable of 0-62mph in 3.8sec and a top speed of over 205mph, returning Maserati's trident to the nose of one of the fastest cars on the road. At the same time their racing siblings are taking the marque back to the pinnacle of international motor sport in the FIA GT Championship.
After a Geneva show debut, the cars have been in development alongside team AF Corse's racers. Much of the work has been done by racing drivers Andrea Bertolini, Mika Salo, Johnny Herbert and Fabrizio De Simone. 'The road car and the race car are very similar,' said Bertolini. 'It is a very easy vehicle to drive and one in which it is easy to find the limit.'
