The 2004 Maserati MC12 is a limited-production targa top supercar by Maserati that appears in all main Forza installments except the first installment of each of the Forza series: Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon. The MC12 is featured in Forza Motorsport 5's The Smoking Tire Car Pack.

The MC12 is based on the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari. Maserati designed and built the MC12, codenamed the "Maserati MCC" during development, on the Enzo Ferrari's chassis, but the MC12 is much larger and has a lower drag coefficient. The MC12 was developed to mark Maserati's return to racing after 37 years. The MC12 GT1, a race car on which the MC12 road car would be based, succeeded in the FIA GT towards the end of the 2004 season.

Description

The MC12 is the latest in a long line of supercars from iconic manufacturer, Maserati. It was designed as a homologation car for Maserati's return to international racing, and in 2005 a race car version won the FIA Manufacturer's Cup. Its sleek profile is only complemented by the historic Maserati white and blue paint scheme. Only 50 were produced.
What the developers have to say about this Class S car: Stiff competition for the Enzo as a road car, and fiercer still when running race trim!

Homologation of race version cars has often brought the highest level of performance cars to the street. The Maserati MC12 is no different. Fifty cars were produced to homologate the #15 and two other race versions of the MC12. The stress-bearing chassis is fashioned out of a carbon fiber and Nomex honeycomb sandwich and follows the design of the Enzo Ferrari, although the MC12 is much larger and slightly slower. Marking the Trident’s return to racing after some 37 years, in 2005 the JMB Racing Maserati took second in the FIA Team Cup and Maserati won the Manufacturers Cup. Unfortunately, the MC12 was too wide to compete in the American Le Mans Series, but was allowed to race as a guest without the ability to earn points in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. There are no such rules in the world of Forza, so have at it and race it where you please; the only complaint you may get is to turn down the volume when the Masi hits its powerband.

Specifications

Maserati designed and built the MC12, codenamed the "Maserati MCC" during development, on the Enzo Ferrari's chassis, but the MC12 is much larger and has a lower drag coefficient. The MC12 was developed to mark Maserati's return to racing after 37 years. The MC12 is longer, wider, and taller and has a sharper nose and smoother curves than the Enzo Ferrari, which has faster acceleration, better braking performance (shorter braking distance), and a higher top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h) compared to the MC12's 205 mph (330 km/h).

The MC12 features a derivative of the Enzo Ferrari's 6.0 L (5,998 cc) F140 V12, codenamed M144A. The MC12 produces 624 hp (465 kW) and 480 ft·lb (651 N·m) of torque. The Maserati Cambiocorsa transmission used in the MC12 is a six-speed sequential semi-automatic transmission based on the one used in the Enzo. The MC12 also has a lower redline of 7,500 rpm with a fuel cutoff threshold of 7,700 rpm. The MC12 is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 8 seconds.

The MC12 features a removable roof panel, allowing it to be a targa top supercar. Unlike the Enzo, the MC12 features no rear window.
