This MC12 is rare beast, made even moreso by tuner Edo Competition

In a country as large as Canada, ultra-rare cars are bound to pop up for sale occasionally. Take, for example, the collector in Calgary, Alberta who is currently selling a 2005 Maserati MC12 Corsa conversion for a cool $1,950,000 USD. Only 50 Maserati MC12 supercars were ever produced for customers, so this is quite the find to say the least.

But the Maserati MC12 Corsa was the road-legal version of the MC12 and only 12 road-legal versions exist. What we have here is the full Corsa conversion done by German tuning company Edo Competition.

Under the hood is a 6.3-litre V12 engine, which produces 840 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque (up from the standard 482 lb-ft). It's mated to a modified sequential gearbox with a multi-plate racing clutch. Reaching 60 miles per hour (96 kilometres per hour) from a standstill takes just 3.2 seconds, and 0-185 mph (298 km/h) can be done in 19 seconds.

There are numerous additional upgrades, including a custom Corsa widebody, custom forged centre-lock wheels, upgraded brakes and special high-temperature friction pads, and an Alcantara interior package. It's painted a custom orange that's bound to make people turn their heads if they haven't already when this car tears by.

The ad doesn't say how many kilometres are on the vehicle, but we can't imagine that number is very high. The current owner does describe this particular MC12 Corsa tributes condition as "excellent."

The astronomical price is to be expected considering the rarity of this Maserati, but the advertisement does say "or best offer," so if you're interested, maybe you can turn on your Canadian charm to knock off a few thousand bucks.
