Maserati undoubtedly produces extremely attractive cars, but most customers will choose a Ferrari or Lamborghini, at least if it is the Italian super cars in question. One Maserati model that still stands out from the others, a racing model, based on the Ferrari Enzo and built to compete in the GT championship, is the Maserati MC12.
Its main advantage, except of course that seems a clear indication of association with Enzo, is under the hood, which is the Ferrari’s 6.0-liter V12 engine with 630 hp and 654 Nm of torque. This power is via a manual six-speed automatic transmission Cambiocorsa sent to the rear wheel axle. It should be noted that this transfer was, at the time when it is made, one of the fastest on the market, and the degree of change required is a mere of 150 milliseconds.
MC12 to 60mph speed up in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 205mph, and for one year as he was in production, it was made only 50 pieces. If you want to own this extraordinary specimen of Italian engineering, and thereby have a deeper pocket, the company Symbolic Motors has one ready for you. Price, a piece of cake for this car, $1.6 million.
Arash AF10 Supercar
Those car enthusiasts with a strong memory might recall the Arash AF10, a prototype supercar which was displayed at the 2006 London Motor Show. Come November and this car will be back in the spotlight as the company is now finally ready to unveil the first production version of the AF10 to the world.
The supercar will make its world debut at the 2010 MPH The Prestige & Performance Motor Show. The AF10, which to some may look like the ugly sibling of the Ferrari Enzo, was originally slated to be an affordable supercar. However, pricing is to start at £620,000 (approximately $1 million), which Arash hopes will allow the AF10 to steal sales away from other small-scale supercar manufacturers, such as Koenigsegg and Pagani.
