The Legendary Maserati MC12 GT1 with its F1-like sounding 6.0L V12

Michael Bartels with his Vitaphone Racing MC12 GT1 in a rare Hillclimb Racing appearance

Two Season ago we had one of the most beautiful, rarest and better sounding GT1 machines trying Hillclimb Racing: the Maserati MC12 GT1 of Vitaphone Racing driven by Michael Bartels. The 6.0L V12 Naturally Aspirated Monster (sharing the engine with the Ferrari Enzo) displayed its capabilites on the German Hillclimb and almost broke its all time Touring Car Record but ended up having a minor crash as seen on the video.

With over 650Hp and weighing only 1200Kg, the Rear Wheel drive, Mid-engined Italian Monster here is a tremendously successful Race Car having won 5 straight GT1 Teams' Championship between 2005 and 2009. Still an incredibly quick machine, this is probably one of the very last opportunities the public had to see this machine being driven in anger.
