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.
The 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.
The 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!
