The Maserati MC12 was quite the machine. Based upon the Ferrari Enzo, the reason for the run of 50 road legal yet race derived supercars was to comply with the rules of the FIA GT Championship. 50 road cars had to be produce in order for the MC12 GT1 to compete, a racer that has seen much success. However, that was back in 2004 and so the MC12 is not as youthful as it once was. We already know Ferrari and Maserati are working on a successor to go racing based upon the new carbon fibre monocoque of LaFerrari, but a new racing car also means a new road car. The 2013 Maserati Bora Concept foreshadows the future car.
This Maserati Bora Concept is a rendering done by Alexander Imnadze and he has made quite a name for himself by designing fictional cars with plausible futures. He does not work for the Italians but this is his interpretation of what the mid-engined V12 road car could look like. It truly is gorgeous with a clean low slung profile. We can only hope that the real thing will look this good!
It is as yet unknown when the MC12 replacement will surface, the Maserati showed up two years after the previous Ferrari flagship, but for now this vision is enough to keep us salivating.
