On August 10, 2007 Edo Competition is back with yet another MC12 interpretation, the edo MC12 Corsa, based on the MC12 Corsa that Maserati launched to celebrate the victory of the GT1 series in 2006.
When Maserati entered the FIA GT1 Championship in 2004, regulations required that the "grand touring" car ought to be based on a production road car design with a minimum production batch of 25 vehicles, spawning the road-going Maserati MC12 super car. When crafted in 2004, the 630 bhp Maserati MC12 was produced as a sub-Enzo exotic, crippled by its size and inferior power, as not to pose a threat to its coveted and more expensive Ferrari-sibling. Edo Karabegovic, founder of Edo Competition, notoriously noted once that "only the doors and the windows were right; everything else was absolute shit' in the MC12. Blessed with the ability to turn shit into gold, a 700 bhp Edo Competition MC12R hit the market in April, 2006. In February this year, Edo's MC12R was replaced by an orange- and black-colored 800 bhp MC12XX to take on the Ferrari FXX.
On August 10, 2007 Edo Competition is back with yet another MC12 interpretation, the edo MC12 Corsa, based on the MC12 Corsa that Maserati launched to celebrate its victory of the GT1 series in 2006. The standard MC12 Corsa has 755 bhp and weighs nearly 400kg (880 lbs) less than the standard MC12. Edo Competition is keen to point out that it doesn't shy away from even the most extreme sports cars but does admit that it has left the 755 bhp V12 untouched. Edo has instead fitted a newly developed high-flow exhaust system that comes with 4 inch (100 mm) dual exhaust tips. To get your goose bumps bumping, Edo has topped it off with a remote control to adjust the sound intensity! How nice is that?
Furthermore, Edo has had black forged wheels (10 J x 19 in front, 13 J x 20 in rear) custom made for the MC12 Corsa. The car also has a a ceramic composite high-performance brake system with 396 mm (15.6 in) rotors in the front and 360 mm (14.2 in) rotors in the rear. See the press release below for full specifications.
