In 2006, a limited-production series of vehicles was developed for private customers looking for the ultimate track experience. The MC12 Versione Corse, intended for non-competitive track use only, was derived from the MC12 GT1 racing car that won the 2005 FIA GT world endurance championship. It was neither road-legal, nor limited by the technical regulations for competing in international GT racing, and was the purest expression of a purpose-built track car with truly exhilarating performance. With 755 hp, the naturally aspirated V12 engine of the Versione Corse was more powerful than the units used in the Stradale road car and in the GT1 race car, since it was not limited by intake air restrictors mandatory for the latter. Weighing just a bit more than 2,500 pounds, acceleration from 0 to 124 mph (200km/h) took just 6.4 seconds. A total of only 13 examples were built: one prototype and 12 customer vehicles.
