Awesome design, love it...like i said before really like the enzo but never liked the whole door design which gave the side view of the car a bad taste in my opinion..

even thought it shares the same kind of looks, I am tending to like this a little more than the enzo for now...

but both of them are one hot piece of a$$..

ROOL:

Cheers

Now this back is a little debatable..but still nice..

This I think will only be avialable in this color combo..

The design is cool though I find the colour combination a bit wierd . I wonder if they will have only this colour like you said or will they offer other options. I hope they do .

Cheers

Hi C4S,

I had read somewhere that the underpinnings of this car come from no other than the mighty Enzo. Not surprising then that the cars share such a similar stance and design philosophy.

Wonderful! Really beautiful car. The Enzo's looks are more Formula 1 compared to this. Both have their own charm. If the MC12 is priced lower than the Enzo, it'll be the icing on the cake. I'd love to get my hands on this beauty.

Hey Adi,
I have just posted "cars for the super rich" which gives the pricing on this and its about a 80k more expensive than the enzo anyhow after carefully looking at this car photos and all..I personally find this car much classier than the enzo and much much better looking..and I think as far as maserati goes it will outperform the ferrari..in my opinion, but time will tell..

Cheers..

Yes C4S,
I read your post. Somehow, even I feel that the MC12 looks better than the Enzo. It is stunning to behold. How could one make it better? The Maserati body with a Ferrari badge?

I think so..if they can out price it then y not out perform it..??

otherwise, atleast give it the same performance or just about the same performance be +/- which one cannot notice..or make one thing in MC12 better than the enzo which will give the customers a good reason to buy over the enzo..and its suppose to be even more limited than the enzo..

the maserati does look better than the Enzo. Hwever they shud have given a better design for the tail lights.
anyways how abt a red/black combi like the Veyron???

Now that all the Enzo's have been booked, Maserati can easily tweak the engines to outperform the Enzo. But will Ferrari allow that??? I think not. The Maserati uses an Enzo engine and obviously Ferrari wudnt allow another car using its engine to outperform their own car.

Y not. Doesn't make a difference to the Enzo sales as all have been booked. i think they shoud go for it.

Forget the Enzo, they should be thinking in terms of bettering the performance of the Mclaren F1.

Ferrari can always build another car to beat the Maserati
