Introduced in 2004, the Maserati MC12 — essentially a re-bodied Ferrari Enzo — was built in only 55 units through 2005. Five of them remained with Maserati for its FIA GT Championship program, which puts the MC12, with its only 50 retailed units, among the rarest supercars ever built. Needless to say, you’d have more luck at finding one of the 400 Ferrari Enzos for sale nowadays.

However, there’s a specific version of the MC12 that’s even rarer. I’m talking about the MC12 Corse, a track-confined supercar built for customer use. To make it simple, think of it as the equivalent of the Enzo-based Ferrari FXX. Only 12 were built and sold for $1.47 million to select customers. Much like Ferrari did with the FXX, Maserati was responsible for the storage and maintenance of the cars, with their respective owners driving them on specially organized track days only.

That said, purchasing an MC12 Corsa is likely next to impossible, with very few customers willing to let their prized and rare supercars go. However, a near-mint example is currently for sale at Ferrari-Maserati of Ft. Lauderdale, and get this, it has only 55 miles on the odometer and perfect paint. There’s no information as to whom owned the vehicle until now, but the dealership will be more than happy to part with this piece of Maserati racing history for $2,999,900. That’s LaFerrari FXX K money right there!

Why it matters

Needless to say, this is one of those opportunities that don’t come around very often. With these cars tucked away in various collections, the chances of finding one for sale are scarce to say the least, let alone stumble into one that has only 55 miles on its odometer. And I bet this MC12 Corsa has yet to hit the race track, making it as pristine as it gets. Sure, $3 million is a lot of dough for car that’s not even street legal, but given its initial sticker and the fact that only 12 were built, it’s a sum some collectors are likely willing to pay.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find my piggy bank. And my hammer...

Built around the MC12 GT1 race car, which won the 2005 FIA GT Manufacturers Cup, the MC12 Corsa was launched with the same power output as its liveried sibling, meaning the naturally aspirated, 6.0-liter V-12 cranked out 745 horsepower, 120 ponies more than the street-legal MC12. Other features that set it apart from its road-going cousin included the GT1’s shortened nose, steel/carbon racing brakes, and a sequential-shift race transmission. The Corsa was available in a single standard color, dubbed "Blue Victory."
