The Only Black Maserati MC12

A total of 50 of these beasts were made.  All of them, except one, had the white and blue paint scheme that paid homage to the America Camoradi racing team that raced the Maserati Tipo Birdcages in the 1960s.  The only black MC12 road car ever made is currently for sale at Ferrari of Newport Beach. There is some question as to whether this is even legal to drive in California.

Description via Ferrari of Newport Beach:

Here is the Elusive 2005 Maserati MC12, the "Refine and Updated" Ferrari Enzo in a Maserati Black Tie Tuxedo! The ONLY MC12 to be Finished in Metallic Black, the other 49 in a White/Blue combination.

The Looks and Open Roof Design make it one of the Most Exciting Supercars in the World. This project benefited from the learning curve of the earlier Enzo and has many Aerodynamic Improvements.

From Maserati: Unveiled at the 2004 Geneva motor show, it was a very exclusive mid-engine model originally intended to be hand-built in just 25 units, all of which sold-out before its launch. Due to the MC12's considerable success, immediately followed up with numerous victories in the FIA's GT1 class, a second batch of 25 cars was built in 2005.
Designed for high level road use, the MC12 exceeded 330 kmh at full throttle, sprinting from 0 to 100 kmh in just 3.8 seconds. The MC12 benefited from the Ferrari-Maserati Group's most advanced technologies and competition experience. Its naturally aspirated 6 litre V12 punched out 465 kW at 7500 rpm, yet offered absolutely excellent drivability, remaining exceptionally lively and fluid even at low engine speeds. An aluminum crankcase, titanium con-rods and extremely efficient four valve cylinder heads were all part of its design. Four gear-driven overhead camshafts provided perfect timing control. The unit was mated to Maserati's proven six-speed Cambiocorsa transmission, offering computerized gear selection. In Race mode, the system was mapped to deliver much faster gear changes and to activate the ASR.
