The road-going Maserati MC12 supercar is nice, but we think the GT1 competition version is better.
From the car's launch in 2004 up until 2010, Maserati raced the Enzo-derived MC12 in a multitude of different series, including the Italian GT series , the Super GT series in Japan, the American Le Mans series, and the FIA GT1 World Championship.
In 2010, the #1 Vitaphone Racing MC12 claimed the FIA GT1 title a full six years after its debut using a detuned version of its 6.0-liter V12, down from 755 horsepower to 560 horsepower. It's sister car, the #2 MC12, is still kicking around race tracks in Europe, as this latest video from YouTuber shows. This one is in full 755-horsepower spec.
That naturally aspirated engine may seem like ancient tech in the world of racing nowadays, but if we're honest, there's no beating the sound of a racing V12.
