2005 Maserati MC12 -Nurburgring Lap
Recently Evo Magazine ran the MC12 at Nordschleife and obtained a 7:24.29
second lap time. This was also the second time an MC12 recorded a faster lap time than its Ferrari
counterpart, with the Enzo lapping the track exactly 1 second slower. Both
times were set by the same driver, Marc Basseng.
The Maserati MC12 is a two-seater sports car produced by Italian car maker
Maserati to allow a racing variant to compete in the FIA GT Championship.
The car entered production in 2004 with 30 cars produced (five of which
were not for sale). A further 25 were produced in 2005 making a total of 50
cars available for customers, each of which were pre-sold for €600 000.
Maserati designed and built the car on the chassis of the Enzo Ferrari but
the final car has much larger size and a lower drag coefficient. The MC12
is longer, wider and taller and has a sharper nose and smoother curves than
the Enzo Ferrari, which has faster
acceleration, better braking performance (shorter braking distance) and a
higher top speed. The top speed of the Maserati MC12 is 330 kilometres per
hour (205 mph) whereas the top speed of the Enzo Ferrari is 350 kilometres
per hour (217.5 mph).
The MC12 was developed to signal Maserati's return to racing after 37
years. The road version was produced to homologate the race version. One
requirement for participation in the FIA GT is the production of at least
25 road cars. Three GT1 race cars were entered into the FIA GT with great
success. Maserati began racing the MC12 in the FIA GT toward the end of the
2004 season, winning the race held at the Zhuhai International Circuit. The
racing MC12s were entered into the American Le Mans Series races in 2005
but exceeded the size restrictions and consequently paid weight penalties
due to excess range.
The MC12 sports a 232 kilogram (511 lb), six-litre (5,998 cc/366 cu in)
Enzo Ferrari-derived V12 engine, mounted at 65°. Each cylinder has four
valves, lubricated via a dry sump system, and a compression ratio of
11.2:1. These combine to provide a maximum torque of 652 newton metres (481
lbf·ft) at 5500 rpm and a maximum power of 630 PS (460 kW; 620 hp) at 7500
rpm. The redline rpm is indicated at 7500—despite being safe up to
7700—whereas the Enzo has redline at 8200 rpm.
The Maserati MC12 can accelerate from 0--100 kilometres per hour (62 mph)
in 3.8 seconds (though Motor Trend Magazine managed 3.7 seconds) and on to
200 kilometres per hour (125 mph) in 9.9 seconds. It can complete a
standing (from stationary) quarter mile in 11.3 seconds with a terminal
speed of 200 kilometres per hour (125 mph) or a standing kilometre in 20.1
seconds. The maximum speed of the Maserati MC12 is 330 kilometres per hour
The power is fed to the wheels through a rear-mounted, six-speed
semi-automatic transmission. The gearbox is the same as the Enzo's
transmission (tuned to different gear ratios) but renamed
"Maserati Cambiocorsa". It provides a shift time of just 150 milliseconds,
and is mechanical with a 215 millimetre (8.5 in) twin plate dry clutch.
SRT Viper ACR-X onboard record lap video at the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:03
Viper ACR-X was the last version of the second generation of the American
supercar previously known as Dodge Viper. It is a race car specifically
designed to compete in the Dodge Viper Cup Series and as all Vipers is
powered by a V10 8.4-litre engine with a manual transmission which in this
race car reaches a power output of 640 HP. Its record time at the Ring set
in 2011 is 7:03.058, 9.072 seconds faster than the road-going Viper ACR.
