Edo Competition Maserati MC12, 0-62 in 3.5 secs

Seems like Edo Competition can’t get enough of tuning high-end performance cars. Yesterday, we brought you info on the new Edo Competition Enzo Ferrari and today the tuner has released details on its Maserati MC12.

Edo Competition has worked on the MC12 before bringing us a 755-hp MC12 Corsa, an 800-hp MC12 XX and a 700-hp MC12 R. This time, labeled just MC12, Edo Competition tuned the engine to produce 700-hp and peak torque of 527 lb-ft much like the MC12 R.

However weight was dropped by 100kg bringing in the same performance figures as the Edo Ferrari Enzo with a 0-62mph times of 3.5 seconds and a 0-124mph time of 9.5 seconds. Top speed is clocked in at 230mph.
