Edo Competition Maserati MC12

The Maserati MC12 never quite hit the mark. Despite sharing the same chassis and drivetrain as the brilliant Ferrari Enzo, the Giorgetto Giugiaro and Frank Stephenson co-designed car was critically panned by everyone who drove it. Famously, Top Gear Presenter Jeremy Clarkson declared that the MC12 was a “detuned Ferrari Enzo in a fat suit” and “far too big, far too ugly and far too tricky to drive fast”.

The MC12 produced 466kW compared to the Enzo’s 484kW, however, despite a slight power deficit, the lighter Maserati would outsprint the Ferrari to 100km/h, covering the dash in 3.8sec before going on to a top speed of 335km/h.
