Got to get up close to MC12 today

I was picking up my QP at Maserati/Ferrari of Central Florida today. David (service guru) had a smirk when he asked if I had a few minutes to tour the facility. My wife and I said "Sure!" and as we went through the garage and turned the corner - this is what we saw. They were nice enough to let us get up close and take all the pictures we wanted.

As I understand it - this guy has a stable of M & F cars - he had an Enzo in the same hanger where they picked this up. It has under 1,000 miles and needed a new clutch. It sat for a long time and things got 'sticky' as it was explained to me. I can't imagine what a new clutch in a million+ dollar car costs

Very nice pics!

I always have a similar experience when at my dealer servicing centre - the guys are very friendly, enthusiastic and accommodating. Combined with the beautiful cars, it always means a trip down there is a lot of fun!

That is one lucky owner. But I guess if he has a MC12 and an Enzo, replacing a clutch doesn't mean much to him. But yeah I'm scared to find out how much that clutc will cost...

Wow, I've never seen one in person (even though there's one in Alpine, NJ...). Not a bad Ferrari in the top right of picture one either!

MC12 on view regularly at Magnon's Riverside Museum

Loved to see those great photos of the FL car. Doug's magnificent collection at the Riverside race Museum includes a great MC12 he drives, and about 4 dozen other wonderful old and new Maserati's, race-cars, etc. ANYtime in So-Cal, plan to visit!
Contact Meetup.com/maserati-garage/ and maybe some of the locals can bring their cars and join in for shared experiences.

Awesome pics of the MC. Thanks for sharing.
