Homologation of race version cars has often brought the highest level of performance cars to the street. The Maserati MC12 is no different. Fifty cars were produced to homologate the #15 and two other race versions of the MC12. The stress-bearing chassis is fashioned out of a carbon fiber and Nomex honeycomb sandwich and follows the design of the Enzo Ferrari, although the MC12 is much larger and slightly slower. Marking the Trident’s return to racing after some 37 years, in 2005 the JMB Racing Maserati took second in the FIA Team Cup and Maserati won the Manufacturers Cup. Unfortunately, the MC12 was too wide to compete in the American Le Mans Series, but was allowed to race as a guest without the ability to earn points in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. There are no such rules in the world of Forza, so have at it and race it where you please; the only complaint you may get is to turn down the volume when the Masi hits its powerband.
