Lately German tuner Edo Competition has been showing us cars from their heyday, when they worked on nothing but the most serious super and racing cars. The Edo Maserati MC12 Corsa is one of the highlights of that era, and this bad boy here is one of the last MC12s they worked on. It’s a museum piece now, this car, but fortunately they took it out to Hockenheim for this photo and video shoot.
Built to road-legal specification, Edo Maserati MC12 Corsa is like a McLaren P1 GTR, only a lot cooler. The Corsa is not as powerful as the P1 – although with 755 horsepower it is hardly a slouch – but it has in its resume 19 FIA GT wins which is a remarkable achievement. What Edo has done to make this track monster street legal include installation of a new exhaust system for noise and emission regulations, a conventional refueling in place of the racing pressure system, a new suspension for road and track use, new steel brakes, a new cooling system with new fans and windscreen ventilation, and road-legal lights and tires.
Despite these changes the Victory Blue Edo Maserati MC12 Corsa remains a bloody monster, packing a V12 engine with 755 horsepower and 740 Nm of torque, all of which has to carry around a dry weight of only 1,250 kg. The means the performance is mind-bending, with a 0 to 100 km/h time of 3.0 seconds, 0 to 200 in 6.0 seconds, and a top speed of 330 km/h. This car is one of one and is, therefore, priceless.
