The Maserati MC12 GT1 is a unique piece of motorsport history. Hitting the tracks between 2004 and 2011, they accumulated 14 titles in the FIA GT series, with 19 overall wins en 3 victories in the famous 24 hours of Spa-Francorchamps. This in 2005, 2006 and 2008, last was even a 1-2 finish for the team.
From this supercar there are only 11 build, of which only 2 remained in ownership of Maserati. They were runne d under the flag of Vitaphone Racing, but always with technical support and crew of Maserati Corse. This is one of those 2 cars.
The car’s weight is only 1100 kg, and this includes ballast weight for hitting the FIA minimum. They achieved this by using a carbon frame tub chassis and all of the best and lightest materials available at that time.
Next was to put in a big engine, for this they turned to the Ferrari Enzo’s 6.0 ltr V12. Of course it was stripped to the bone, and build up as a proper racing engine. Result: 750 + HP and a screaming exhaust sound….
This car is last used 2010 in the FIA GT world championship, and never driven on track since. Team RaceArt from the Netherlands are the current proud owners, and have prepared the car to hit the tracks once again! This they did with the help of Maserati Corse and Michael Bartels, former world champion and team owner of Vitaphone Racing.Back
