Maserati has taken the wraps off its weapon for GT racing, releasing photos of the competition version (called MCC) testing at Ferrari's Fiorano track and showcasing the road-going homologation model (dubbed MCS) at the Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the Ferrari Enzo, from which it borrows most of the mechanical components including the 650-bhp 6.0-liter V-12 engine. The Maserati has a body different from the Enzo's, without moveable aerodynamic pieces, which are forbidden in GT racing. Developed in the wind tunnel, the Maserati's body is more elegant and smoother than the Enzo's.

I have heard about plat-form sharing...but never imagined it would hit the likes of the mighty ENZO!! But just the fact that it was adopted for the GT proves the Enzo's true purpose...Racing!

Any updates on the hyped up four door Maserati?

By the way, I think these pictures are posted in the wrong thread.

This thread is 5 years old when the Maserati MC12 supercar and the 4-door Quattroporte, possibly the ones which were being discussed here then, were not launched.
