Meanwhile, the MC12 houses a naturally aspirated mill with twice the displacement and cylinder variety of the MC20. It features a Ferrari-derived 6.0-liter V12 engine capable of developing the same power but with less torque at 481 lb-ft. The weight difference between the two Maserati supercars is negligible, with each tipping the scales at around 3,300 pounds.
With almost twenty years between the two vehicles, some might say that the results of the recent MC20 Nürburgring time trial are shocking, if not disappointing. Then again, we doubt this will cause critical customers not to buy one, given that the MC20 deserves in terms of design.
