I can see your point. However, the only place I've really seen this car (not in the flesh...) is on racetracks around the world making its mark in the FIA GT series with lots of wins. It represents the modern Maserati racing success. So all is well then - and sub zero it is

It wasn't a criticism. Just an observation. I'm not familiar with the car and would have voted uncool from the official press photos you've got. That's not your fault :brickwall:

Sub zero,it is a Maserati after all!

Re: Maserati MC12

I tend to agree with the train of thought which says the MC12 belongs on the race track and that's where it should stay.

There's a fine line between a car having gorgeous styling and being garish. Imo, the MC12 crosses that line.

Looks just too OTT to drive on the road.

Tbh, compared to all the cars posted on this thread, for me, the Alfa 8C wins hands down in the sub-zero styling stakes. Just my opinion.

Flame suit on.

In the pictures.

On the road it looks out of place and OTT. I can almost see people shaking their heads and grown men laughing at it as it drives past. These types of cars belong on the track at Le Mans and not on the road.

The fact that this car is even road legal makes it uncool. If it had been soley a race car then sub zero all the way.

The same goes for the Enzo.
Sounds about right.

I'm more of a GT car man so I regard all supercars as uncool, partly because of links to premiership footballers, and partly because they are a bit silly for use as road cars. I couldn't drive to work in that. Not because I'd get laughed at but because it couldn't physically do the journey. There are two many speedbumps, rough roads and inclines and it wouldn't physically fit in the car park. Not being able to get where you want to go because your car is too daft isn't cool.
