Maserati's US$1.3 million MC12 Corsa

June 1, 2006 Maserati has announced the production of the MC12 Corsa, a build-to-order supercar for very select Maserati clients who enjoy testing their driving ability in the most exclusive gentlemen drivers’ environment (the racetrack). The MC12 Corsa has been developed from the MC12 GT1 type which won the 2005 FIA GT Manufacturers Cup. It will be used exclusively on track during private test sessions – or exhibition activities organised by Maserati. It will not be homologated for road use or for any racing activity. Only 12 will be built and pricing starts at EU1,000,000 (US$1.28 million). The chassis is a carbon-fibre monocoque, the 6.0 litre V12 motor produces 755 horsepower and the car weighs 1150 kilograms without fuel.  Read More

Learn to drive the Maserati Way

January 31, 2006 Having a high performance automobile is not much use if you aren’t a high performance driver – indeed, it might get you into a whole lot of trouble and has been known to be fatal. Which all adds up to a fantastic excuse to attend the Maserati 2006 Master GT driving course. The Maserati Master GT courses are based at the Paletti de Varano de'Melegari Autodromo in the mountains near Parma in Italy and have exclusive use of this demanding and road-like circuit, and its wide range of facilities that can provide artificial rain, low grip surfaces to mimic snow and ice and full telemetry facilities so that drivers can examine in the classroom exactly what they were doing behind the wheel while on the track. All cars are provided and the full Maserati range is on offer including the Coupe, GranSport, GranSport Spyder and the Quattroporte, all in manual and Cambiocorsa sequential manual gearbox versions. The team of ten instructors is lead by Ivan Capelli, a veteran of nearly 100 F1 Grand Prix starts during his motorsport career.  Read More
