LaFerrari-Based Maserati coming in 2015
While most of automakers will have to resort building niftier cars, Maserati might actually be able to deliver their own LaFerrari-based hypercar to future customers. Sounds familiar? Yes, it's the same type of agreement that led to the development of the Ferrari Enzo-based Maserati MC12, which was sold in just 50 units in 2004 and 2005.
However, Maserati won't use everything LaFerrari has under its body, but will ditch the hybrid technology and use either the F12 6.3-liter V12 Ferrari engine or a quad-turbo 3.8-liter based on the twin-turbo found in the Quattroporte. Without the hybrid batteries, the Maserati should be lighter than the LaFerrari, but, for obvious reasons, it won't be faster than Maranello's latest hypercar.
According to Car, the all-carbon Maserati will be built in just 50 units (compared to 499 LaFerraris) with a price tag of over €1 million ($1.3 million).
