Maserati MC12 Corse for sale: Own a Legend

What happens when you think of the Maserati brand name? You think of the Quattroporte, Ghibli, Gran Turismo, and now, their newest sports car: the MC20. There’s more to that name than you might think. Maserati in motorsport have a rare rep, but when they have appeared in the past, they have seen great success. Enter “Bird Cage.”

Back in the 1960s, Maserati developed their Tipo 60/61 race car with the help of Caroll Shelby (yes, that Shelby), who did some early test driving. With that, and the automaker’s intricate tubular frame that inspired the nickname Birdcage, the Maserati was equipped in the 1960s to enter the 24 hours of Le Mans – and maintain an average time of just over 4 minutes ahead of the Ferrari. Unfortunately, starter problems and heavy rain would have proved too much for an open wheel race car, but it redeemed itself with the incredible result of winning the Nürburgring Six Hours (then the Nürburgring 1000 km).

As far as its origins are concerned, the vehicle was developed with Ferrari Formula 1 technicians conducting four to five consecutive days of testing every 15 days. This proved to be the only application of the Ferrari Enzo V12 engine in the racing world, as Enzo had never seen anything outside the FXX program. With its unique combination of racing victories, technical achievements and a limited production of just 12 units, the Maserati MC12 Corse is undeniably a commemorative collection of Italian automotive history.
