The Only Black Maserati MC12 Nets $1.5 Million

There are just 50 examples of the Maserati MC12 that were created for road use. All were given the very same pearl paint coat with attractive light blue accenting, save a single black car. Think of it as the ugly duckling of sorts, it just stands out. The rare black MC12 recently netted over a million at Mecum Auction House, $1.575 million to be exact.

Maserati MC12The Maserati MC12 at a glance:

  • The MC12 car was based on the bare bones of the Ferrari Enzo, which is quite interesting.
  • Power is derived via a robust 6.5-liter V12 engine that was kindly sourced from…you guessed it—the Enzo.
  • Performance specifications indicate 620 horsepower and 652 Nm of torque with a not to 60 mile per hour sprint of 3.8 seconds.
  • The black Maserati MC12 has just 1300 kilometers on the odometer, while the new owner is over a million dollars lighter in the bank account—totally worth it.

Maserati MC12The black MC12 Maserati car opens up to a fine dark blue leather cockpit with all of the high-end interior accents one would expect from the brand at that point in time. The overall look was finished off with a pair of 7-spoke shoes with a sporty red center on one side and blue on the other—which is a bit odd, but this is the odd duck of the bunch!
