Maserati Plotting LaFerrari-Based Hypercar of its Own
Maserati sounds like a pretty fun outfit. The brand likes to race, and making loud noises, and building cars like this. They even had an Enzo
rivaling eating road-going race car at one point; the MC12.
It was long, it was sleek, and in all honestly, wasn't actually all that great looking compared to other mid-era supercars like the Enzo, Murcielago or, Zonda. But what it did manage was a 0-60 mph time of just about 3.8 seconds, a top speed of just over 200 mph and 630-hp thanks to a 6.0L V12; and that was great.
Now, as Ferrari has rolled out the LaFerrari, and other automakers such as McLaren and Porsche are preparing hypercars of their own, Maserati wants to get in on the mix with an MC12-succeeding, V12-bearing hypercar to match.
According to Car, the Maserati will sit on the same platform as the LaFerrari but ditch all the unnecessary bits of hybrid technology to make room for a Ferrari-sourced 6.3L V12, or even an in-house 3.8L V8. Reports also say that- like the LaFerrari- the Maserati will carry a $1M+ price tag and an exclusivity of only 50 models produced. Get your pocketbooks ready, rich people.
