3 Amazing Things About The Edo Competition’s Tuning Package For The Maserati MC12

maserati-mc12-4

The Maserati MC12 did not need more power or tuning, but Edo Competition apparently wanted to make our eyes pop out of their sockets. Almost a decade since it was first released, the MC12 is receiving an exciting new tuning package from the German auto tuner.

It seems outrageous that a car worth $1.6 million (and rising since it became a huge favorite among collectors) needs a performance package, but that’s what Edo Competition just did based on a report. Back when the MC12 was still brand new, a lot of auto tuners wanted to tinker with it, but Maserati was adamant the 50 units it released will stay that way. They were each priced at $670,000.

Things are different now because the Italian brand was the one who commissioned Edo Competition to come up with a package that will prepare the MC12 for the centenary celebration.

It Can Unleash 620 Horsepower

If put in competition with some of today’s fastest vehicles, the MC12 would still come up on top. It’s one of the fastest automobiles ever made and thanks to Enzo, the 6.0-liter V12 can originally produce 620 horsepower and 652 Nm (481 lb-ft) of torque. These figures allow the MC12 to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. It has a maximum top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).

Edo’s Variant Presents Slight Deviations

If you thought the MC12 was powerful enough on its own, then you’ll be surprised with what Edo did. The Edo variant is only one of the 12 track-only Corse cars that have been converted to road use. It features slight deviations from the original race car, such as the new exhaust system, street chassis, suspension tuning, and a fuel system that can process pump gas.

It’s Called the “Edo MC12 Versione Corse”

For short, it’s officially the VC, and can power a whopping 744 horsepower and 740 Nm (546 lb-ft) of torque. Because it only weighs 1,250 kilograms, it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds flat. It still has a top speed of 330 km/h.
