    my translation :

    It said that the car got it first outing today on the fiorano track , that it will be introduced at geneva along with the Stradale version .Apparently its called MCC and the stradale is called MCS
    (Maserati ________ Corse ? and Maserati ___________ Stradale ? )
    Both car were developped together under the supervision of tech engineer Giorgio Ascanelli..

    The MCC will start racing in the second half of the FIA season and 2 cars will be raced by Maserati. Customers cars will also be available.

    Carbon fiber chassis , 1100 kgs , 65° V12 6.0 , 6 speed Sequential gearbox
    Push rod suspension

    If that pic up there is really really real then I LOVE IT!
    It just looks enough like an Enzo but its now more smoothed over.
    GREAT!

    Any idea on pricing and availability?
    Same price and # for sale as the Enzo?

    Now that's a beautiful car! :) I'm not seeing tooooo much of the Enzo in the design, but as others have said there's a bit of F50 in the look such as the headlights, but they're likely a takeoff of the Maser coupes). To me it's reminiscent of the Lotus Elise GT1 from a few years back.

    I like the look of this car. I hope that it will prove to be both fast & reliable.

    IMHO the rear treatment is very reminiscent of the 911 GT1.

    Today at Fiorano saw the track debut of the Maserati that will take part in the FIA GT championships. The car, which for the time being goes by its project code name of MCC, will be launched at the forthcoming International Geneva Motor Show, alongside the Trident marque’s new road-going Granturismo car, the MCS, from which it is closely derived. The two cars were designed in a joint operation between the Maserati engineers and those of the Modena company’s racing department under the technical direction of engineer, Giorgio Ascanelli.

    The Ferrari-Maserati Group’s race test driver, Andrea Bertolini completed the first few laps, with no lap times recorded. Most of the day was devoted to a general technical check on the car.

    “ This is a very important programme for Maserati, which the Racing Department has tackled with great enthusiasm ,” stated Gestione Sportiva Managing Director, Jean Todt. “ Today, we have witnessed the MCC’s track debut and as usual on these occasions, it was a really emotional moment .”

    Testing at Fiorano continues tomorrow, once again with Andrea Bertolini at the wheel.

    That car is sweet. Almost a great mix of the F50 (bonnet and lights) and the Enzo. I like the wing too. From the front it really looks aggressive. Does anyone have high-level knowledge of what they are looking to do with it HP, performance, price, dates, etc..
