Three things are certain in life: death, taxes, and the Maserati MC12 GT1 looking amazing from every angle.

The V12 naturally aspirated beast was one of the most successful GT1 cars of the era, picking up six teams and drivers FIA GT1 titles, winning 40 of 94 races along the way.

Not only does this car have a fantastic history, but it also has a fantastic rear wing. Despite being rather stout, it seems to sit perfectly about the rear end, where some of the most incredible automotive architecture resides.

Legends took to the wheel of the MC12. Salo, Wendlinger, Schieder, Van de Poele, Sarrazin, Negrão and Pier Guidi, the list goes on.

This car is truly one of the most incredible machines to grace the motorsport world.
