    When Andrea Bertolini turned the key to the 12-cylinder engine at Fiorano, a new chapter was written in Maserati’s glorious sporting history.

    The MCC, short for Maserati Corse Competizione, today began a series of tests at the Modena circuit designed to fine tune various components. The 12 cylinder V-engine has a displacement of 5998 cc and produces over 620 bhp. The MCC’s sweeping, aerodynamic body rests on a carbon-fibre chassis that weighs 1100 kg. Push rod suspension in steel and tyres by Pirelli complete the hardware.

    Giorgio Ascanelli planned and oversaw the MCC project - a model which is very similar to the new Maserati Granturismo (MCS). The car will be officially presented at the Geneva Motorshow in March this year.

    With this new model, the House of the Trident will take part in some selected FIA GT races in the upcoming championship, ahead of full participation pencilled in for 2005.

    This new Maser is wonderful. I am very interested to see what it will do when raced and how it will fare against the Prodrive Ferrari's.

    The ironic thing is the Maserati MCC competing directly with the Ferrari 575 GTC in the FIA GT series. In 2003 there were only two catagories, GT (575,550) and N-GT (360). Both of these cars (MCC & 575) "seem to look" like they belong in two different catagories. Can someone enlighten me and help clarify??
