Utilizing the incredible Ferrari Enzo as a basis, Maserati and designer Frank Stephenson put their own unique twist on Ferrari’s most significant car to date. With Maserati on the rise, the time was right to produce a world-beating supercar, and the Enzo was the perfect platform. With only 50 examples produced, the MC12 proved to be hugely desirable from the moment it was announced. Not only did it make waves in the showroom and on the open road, but the race-spec MC12 Corsa saw considerable success in the GT and GT1 World Championship series.
Delivered to its first owner in Verona in December 2004, this MC12 is a truly exceptional example. Having travelled just under 6,000 kilometres from new, it remains in excellent condition throughout. Prior to sale, the MC12 was sent to Motor Service Srl, the official Ferrari and Maserati dealership in Modena, Italy, and was serviced to ensure that it remains ready to return to the road. It is also worthwhile to note that an aftermarket rear view camera has been installed, providing much-needed assistance in parking and low-speed manoeuvres in close quarters.
Much rarer than an Enzo and arguably more striking, the MC12 is an automobile that demands attention and respect wherever it goes. It is undoubtedly the most significant Maserati produced in the 21st century and an automobile that will only become more desirable over time. Seldom offered for sale, the opportunity to acquire an MC12 should not be ignored, and this particular example is ready for whatever its next owner chooses.
