On a circuit where they have benevolent limits, you can enjoy a racing car free of FIA restrictions.

The Maserati MC12 marked the brand’s return to the racetrack in 2004 after nearly four decades. The car was based on the Ferrari Enzo and successfully entered the FIA ​​GT series. During the years 2004 and 2005, fifty homologation specials intended for roads were produced. The racing version from Maserati Reparto Corse, for example, can boast of dominating the 24 hours race in Spa.

But for some enthusiasts, the road version of this brutal racer was not enough. They wanted more. Maserati heard their requests, in 2006 the Maserati MC12 Versione Corse was created. It is essentially the same as the Ferrari from the XX program and the car is related to the FXX model. It is essentially a race car that is not allowed anywhere but on race tracks and is exempt from FIA restrictions.

At 1150 kg, the Versione Corse is 200 kilograms lighter than the road version. It does not have traction, stability or ABS control. When you’re up to it, you can accelerate from rest to 200 km/h in 6.4 seconds at full throttle. More torque was sent to the rear wheels via a Camiocorsa six-speed sequential gearbox, and the brakes were, of course, carbon-ceramic.

These are the most expensive cars of 2023. Once again the old Ferrari dominated, but the 21st century did not let itself be put to shame

Only twelve such cars were created, each with a price tag of 1,000,000 euros. But it was a smart investment, as demonstrated by a gentleman from Germany who bought the car with chassis number 0008 in 2007, drove it a bit, added it to his collection and is now passing it on through RM Sotheby’s auction. The price is expected to be somewhere between 2.8 and 3.5 million euros.
