  • Retains its original engine
  • Recently serviced by Motor Service Srl
  • One of just 50 constructed


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.




Motore V-12 a 65°, doppio albero a camme in testa per bancata, 5998 cc, 630 Cv, cambio a 6 rapporti “Cambiocorsa” sequenziale con sistema di comando tramite palette al volante. Sospensioni indipendenti sulle quattro ruote con doppio quadrilatero, ammortizzatori in acciaio contrapposti con molle coassiali, freni a disco Brembo, intagliati autoventilanti. Passo: 2800 mm

• Meno di 6000 chilometri percorsi; originariamente consegnata in Italia
• Motore originale
• Recentemente tagliandata presso la Motor Service Srl
• Una delle sole 50 costruite

Utilizzando l’incredibile Ferrari Enzo come base, Maserati e il designer Frank Stephenson hanno aggiunto un tocco unico alla più importante Ferrari mai prodotta fino a quel momento. Con Maserati in piena ripresa, era il momento giusto per mettere in produzione una supercar di livello mondiale con il marchio del tridente e la Enzo si è rivelata la piattaforma perfetta da cui partire. Con soli 50 esemplari prodotti, la MC12 è stata una delle auto più ambite sin da quando è stata annunciata. Non solo ha creato stupore nei saloni di vendita o ne crea quando vista su strada aperta, ma la versione da gara MC12 Corsa ha conquistato numerosi importanti successi nel Campionato del Mondo della serie GT e GT1.

Consegnata al suo primo proprietario a Verona, nel Dicembre 2004, questa MC12 rimane un esemplare straordinario. Ha percorso poco meno di 6000 chilometri da nuova, ed è rimasta in eccellenti condizioni generali. Prima della vendita, la MC12 è stats mandata presso la Motor Service Srl, la concessionaria ufficiale Ferrari e Maserati di Modena, per essere tagliandata e preparata per garantirne la perfetta efficienza e per renderla pronta a tornare sulla strada. E’ importante sottolineare anche che, è stata aggiunta una telecamera posteriore aftermarket, per garantire la necessaria visibilità posteriore durante i parcheggi e le manovre negli spazi ristretti.

Nettamente più rara di una Enzo, ed effettivamente più di impatto, la MC12 è una vettura che viene ammirata e rispettata ovunque vada. E’senza dubbio, la Maserati più significativa prodotta in questo 21° secolo, ed è un’automobile che, nel prossimo futuro, diventerà sempre più ricercata. Raramente offerta in vendita, l’opportunità di acquistare una MC12 non dovrebbe essere sottovalutata e, questa specifica vettura, è pronta per fare tutto quello che il suo nuovo proprietario potrà desiderare.
