Edo MC12 VC, a beast created by Edo Competition and Maserati.
we were All hoping for the centenary of Maserati (met a few years ago) we were witnesses to the birth of a new supercar. Something as well as the dreamed and speculated successor to the Maserati MC12. However, the mark of the trident chose to adapt to the new times and now, we find in the market models such as the Maserati Levante, something unthinkable just a few decades ago.
it Is clear that the Maserati MC12 scored mark on the faithful followers of the Italian brand. As we have already commented in some occasion when it goes to auction one unit of the MC12, they were only sold 50 copies at a price uneconomic. Barely a year after the end of the production and marketing of the above-mentioned supercar, Maserati dared with the world of competition, and it was then when he introduced the Maserati MC12 Corsa. There were only 12 units, and all of them unique to the world of competition.
Since the year 2006, the Maserati MC12 and MC12 Corsa are history. Until today. Edo Competition and Maserati have joined forces to create a single unit. The Edo MC12 VC (Version Corse). The idea of the preparer German was able to convert the radical MC12 Corsa in a vehicle suitable to be driven by road, but instead of modifying it, have decided to take up the tough challenge of making a MC12, a model as radical as the version Corsa but suitable for street.
Can be driven on the road, although their natural habitat is the race track.
The body of this beast is built using a monocoque carbon fiber. This, combined with a strict diet, get the weight to place on 1.250 kilograms. For its part, the MC12 Corsa weighed 1.150 kilograms, so the difference is minimal. The suspension has also been adapted to, while you have footwear about tires specific.
If we attend to the area later, although its impressive spoiler and the diffuser to reveal that we are not faced with a supercar conventional, the exhaust system and its four outputs are adapted to the rules of the street. Edo Competition has required that four of its workers to work specifically on the project for six months. The tests and test track were performed on the circuit of Hockenheim (Germany).
In his bowels, Edo MC12 VC has a huge engine V12 of 6.0 liters that yields a power of 755 HP and 740 Nm of maximum torque. Said block is associated with a gearbox sequential six-speed with paddle shifters that sends power to the rear axle. Thanks to this mechanics, can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds and reach a top speed of 330 km/h.
there is Only one unit of the Edo MC12 VC and has been donated to the museum of Maserati.
The fate of Edo
MC12 VC it is to be exposed next to other copies of Maserati in the museum of
the mark of the trident. A beast that, after being tamed, will be the protagonist along
the iconic MC12, and his brother, destined to the world of racing.
