Maserati MC12 Corsa Screaming V12 Engine & Accelerations at Imola Circuit!

Aug 23, 2020

With this video we go back to the 2018 Historic Minardi Day, an event born in 2016 in order to celebrate the Minardi F1 team after 10 years from its last F1 season. In the following years it have become more a two-days motorsport festival where old Formula cars could “stretch their legs” on track together with GT race cars, prototypes and supercars during specific sessions. In addition to this, some sportscar/supercar manufacturers can bring one of their models at this event and offer passenger rides to public or VIPs.

That year Maserati was there with a Granturismo S and this Maserati MC12 Versione Corsa (passenger ride on which it would have been reserved to Maserati customers and people inside Maserati, I think) driven by Andrea Bertolini, probably the driver who knows the MC12 best, being the official test driver and FIA GT and GT1 World champion with this car for 4 years (2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010). But be careful: the MC12 Versione Corsa isn’t the actual GT1 race car. The so called ‘Corsa’, like the one in this video, is the track-only MC12 built in just 15 examples (12 for private customers plus other 3 for testing and marketing purposes). It’s basically the Maserati ‘XX’ car if you want to make a comparison with Ferrari and their XX Programmes.

It was directly developed from the 2005 MC12 GT1 but compared to this the Ferrari 6.0-litre V12 engine on the Corsa is without intake restrictors (as instead required by the technical regulations of the FIA GT) so it can deliver more power, reaching 755 hp at 8,000 rpm, a whopping 125 hp more than the race engine, limited to 630 hp. Another big difference between the two is the gearbox: the GT1 has a 6-speed sequential gearbox, the Versione Corsa has a 6-speed “Maserati Cambiocorsa” semiautomatic transmission (that’s why it sounds so slow and in that way compared to the faster GT1 sequential). Basically the upshifts sound and the steering wheels + interiors are what allow you to distinguish the two racing variants of the MC12.

In this brief video you can enjoy some accelerations and a lap onboard around Imola Circuit. Unfortunately this could have been a whole better and longer video if the MC12 Corsa hadn’t had a power steering and upshifting issues who forced Andrea to make just four laps during the whole weekend and not being able to push as he would have liked.
I have to thank my friends and youtubers @Italiansupercarvideo and @davide458italia for the great collaboration done during the event.

I love Maseratis. They are wonderful, especially their exhaust note. Too bad this one was suffering.


norm murdock capri

Hey, here’s a great shot of my friend Norm Murdock’s awesome, race-winning Capri.

“It’s an ex-Sam Posey T/A car from the 1973 season, built in 1972, first in DE as a Grp2 car, then revised by Kwech & Crew at AUSCA for SCCA T/A and IMSA GTO.”

Sweet, isn’t it?

Front axle articulation is so much better with the servo properly mounted on the Brat. This tree root is even less of an obstacle than last week.

My friend is today in Pennsylvania helping a friend bring a Subaru Brat home. So I thought it pretty cosmic that these images showed up on my tumblr feed today. Even if this one is an RC car. Brats were always rare and fun.

The Simca-Abarth (1964-66) and Simca 1000 Rallye

Simca 1000 Rallye 2

In the model’s early years, the Italian tuner Abarth was offering modified versions of the 1000, and later Simca itself began offering a “Rallye” version, which helped boost the model’s popularity in the motorsport community. The Rallye was followed by the Rallye 1, the Rallye 2 and the Rallye 3.[19]

  • Simca-Abarth 1150 – 1137 cc – 55 PS (40 kW; 54 hp) at 5600 rpm – disk brakes – 11000 F
  • Simca-Abarth 1150 S – 1137 cc – 58 PS (43 kW; 57 hp) at 5600 rpm – disk brakes
  • Simca-Abarth 1150 SS – 1137 cc – 65 PS (48 kW; 64 hp) at 5600 rpm – disk brakes – Option : six speed gear box

The swan song of the Simca 1000 in this series was the Simca 1000 Rallye 3, with a 103 hp (77 kW) engine. Only 1000 were produced during the last year of production of the Simca 1000, 1978.

Absolutely fabulous… don’tcha think?

2 septembre

2 septembre :Jour de la démocratie au Tibet

Elle n’a pas le “label” officiel journée mondiale, mais elle existe bel et bien et depuis longtemps. Son origine remonte à 1960, et précisément au 2 septembre de cette année.

Ce jour là se tenait l’installation du parlement tibétain, élu démocratiquement au début de la même année, à l’initiative du Dalaï-Lama.

Rappelons que le gouvernent tibétain est un gouvernement “en exil” dans la mesure où ce pays a été envahi et annexé par son voisin chinois qui le considère comme une “région” de la Chine.

I’m drawing a blank here. And I don’t like that. Anyone know? Please comment 🙂

The engines are clueless; and typically only list no info Pinterest results, usually, which is nearly as useless as tits on a bull for getting image file info.

Besides, I’ve been kicked off Pinterest now, anyway. LOL

No great loss.
