When Maserati was on the rise in the mid-2000s, thanks to the success of the Spyder, Coupe, and Quattroporte, the company decided that it was the right time to produce its own supercar. Like Ferrari, Maserati was owned by Fiat S.p.A., so it only made sense for them to utilise the platform of the incredible Enzo, the gold standard of supercars, to their advantage. It goes without saying that the engineers and designers at Maserati had a big task ahead of them.
While the MC12 may have been very similar to the Enzo in terms of mechanics, its bodywork was anything but. Designed by Frank Stephenson, the MC12 had its own dramatic look and flair. The biggest difference between the Enzo and MC12 was the presence of a removable hardtop, allowing a more visceral, open-top driving experience for driver and passenger. At the back, the MC12 had a massive rear spoiler; thanks to that and its newer proportions, the MC12 created more downforce than the Enzo.
Needless to say, the MC12 caused quite a stir amongst Maserati enthusiasts when it was first announced. As it was unequivocally the greatest road-going automobile that the company had ever built, everyone wanted their hands on Maserati’s newest supercar. The company had intended for the car to make an impact, and it did so by strictly limiting the number that would be built to only 25 cars. Each of which was hand-finished, with exacting attention to detail, and finished in a brilliant two-tone blue and white colour scheme. However, apparently the urging of customers proved too much for Maserati to resist. Looking to not only please their demanding clientele, but also to celebrate the car’s racing success, Maserati eventually produced a second run of 25 cars, for a total of a still very limited 50 examples.
