The Maserati MC12 is a supercar made by Maserati that appears in the Asphalt series.
The Maserati MC12 is based on the Enzo Ferrari chassis. This was in 2004, when Ferrari still owned Maserati. Ferrari promised to build "another Enzo", which included the FXX and the MC12. Only 50 MC12's have ever been produced with 25 being released in 2004 and another 25 in 2005, mainly to enable Maserati to enter the FIA GT Championship. The Maserati MC12 and the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione use the Enzo Ferrari's chassis and engine. It is unknown whether Maserati is planning a replacement for the Maserati MC12.
The Maserati MC12 uses a 6.0L naturally aspirated V12 engine derived from the Enzo Ferrari, but detuned to 630 PS (620 bhp). It is claimed to accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) within 3.8 seconds and on to 200 km/h (124 mph) at almost 10 seconds. It has a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), lower than the Enzo Ferrari's 217 mph (350 km/h).
Introduced in the San Diego Harbor update, the Maserati MC12 is one of two Maserati vehicles in Asphalt 8, alongside the Maserati GranTurismo Sport. Out of the two, the MC12 is the only one that is a Premium vehicle. It costs 1,316,350 to max out.
While the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR AMG has a starting rank of 1381 and the Maserati MC12 has a starting rank of 1382 (same as the Chevrolet Corvette C7 from Class A), both cars have the same maximum rank (1518). The MC12 features high top speed, great handling and long nitro durationss, which helps acceleration. If driven correctly, the MC12 can beat the CLK GTR AMG and the Corvette C7 on most tracks (especially Tokyo) due to its better top speed and handling.
Prior to the release of the car, the Maserati MC12 was given to the top spots of each division in the time-limited Maserati MC12 Cup. This cup is notorious in that it cost 6 Fuel Points to play, meaning the player could not make a mistake even once; otherwise, they would have to wait a long time just to try again. The MC12 was also given for free if the player finished all the races in the Asphalt 8 Third-Anniversary Cup, held from August 22 to August 29, 2016.
Beyond time-limited events, the MC12 was also previously obtainable alongside the Peugeot Onyx from the Pole Position Premium Pack for $25.99; it is currently one of the 7 cars that are obtained by purchasing the Motor Master Car Pack. Prior to the Porsche Update, it could also be purchased individually for 2,250.
The MC12 was converted into a Blueprints car during the Porsche Update, and although it can still be obtained by purchasing the Motor Master Car Pack, the only other way to obtain it is via assembling it after collecting 8 of its BP cards. Assembling the MC12 requires 2 hours and 30 minutes and can be skipped for 214.
The MC12's BP cards were given out as a Daily Bonus reward if the player logged in for at least 25 days in July 2017.
