Maserati’s very own Ferrari FXX

In 2004, five years after Ferrari took full control of the Maserati brand, the Modena-based company unleashed the MC12, a limited-edition supercar based on the Ferrari Enzo. Created to homologate the GT1 racing variant for the FIA GT Championship, the MC12 was produced until 2005 in only 50 examples. In 2006, Maserati introduced one last version of the MC12, the Corsa. Developed from the race-spec GT1, the Corsa was intended for private use, but like the GT1 it was also restricted to the race track, as its modifications made it illegal to drive on public roads.

Created "in response to the customer demand to own the MC12 racing car and fueled by the growth in track days, where owners can drive their cars at high speeds in the safety of a race track," the MC12 Corsa was sold to private customers in a similar fashion to the Enzo-based Ferrari FXX. While each owner paid in excess of $1 million to buy an MC12 Corsa, they only drove them on specially organized track days. Outside these events, the cars were stored and maintained by Maserati.

Only twelve MC12 Corsas were built and they all shared several specifications with the GT1 race car, including the uprated engine. Another three vehicles were produced for testing, while a fourth extra chassis was used for the Birdcage 75th, a concept car showcased at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show.
