You might be familiar with the road-going MC12, Maserati’s last ever super car which is based on the Ferrari Enzo. But not many people have seen this car’s racing twin, the Maserati MC12 GT1. And still fewer have laid eyes on the MC12 GT1 “Centenario” which is the 100th anniversary edition of the car.
So here’s a good look at the Maserati MC12 GT1 Centenario, and it just so happens that this full-on race car is filmed on public roads. Now, this is not something that would normally be allowed. But the residents of Knokke-Heist in Belgium were hosting the Zoute Grand Prix 2015 this weekend, and in the spirit of the event they let the big Maser take to the streets.
Maserati MC12 GT1 is powered by a 760 horsepower V12 engine mated to a 6-speed paddle operated Maserati Cambiocorsa Electro-Hydraulic transmission. The carbon bodied and chassis’d race car weighs in at just 1,200 kg which means it has a power-to-weight ratio of 630 bhp per tonne. Carbon discs, pushrod suspension, and a bespoke aero kit are among the other highlights of this handsome devil. These days MC12 Corsa models are bought largely by private collectors who buy them so they can just ogle them all day long. They are rarely driven.
