June 1, 2006 Maserati has announced the production of the MC12 Corsa, a build-to-order supercar for very select Maserati clients who enjoy testing their driving ability in the most exclusive gentlemen drivers’ environment (the racetrack). The MC12 Corsa has been developed from the MC12 GT1 type which won the 2005 FIA GT Manufacturers Cup. It will be used exclusively on track during private test sessions – or exhibition activities organised by Maserati. It will not be homologated for road use or for any racing activity. Only 12 will be built and pricing starts at EU1,000,000 (US$1.28 million). The chassis is a carbon-fibre monocoque, the 6.0 litre V12 motor produces 755 horsepower and the car weighs 1150 kilograms without fuel.
The Maserati MC12 Corsa – living testimony of Maserati’s ability to individually tailor make specially produced cars of the highest technological content – will be on sale at the price of 1,000,000 Euros (plus tax) starting from next autumn. Available in the official Maserati "Blue Victory" colour, it can be personalised upon request with several option items, starting with a different colour upon request by the client.
