Recently I posted an article about how amazing the Maserati MC12 GT1 race car looked and sounded on track. That brief clip was under a minute and a half, but it did a great job of distilling the essence of the all-conquering MC12 GT1 racers. Naturally, the Revvolution team was mid-chubby for this machine even before the vid ended, so we fired up the Google to find moar. Now, for your viewing pleasure, here’s three MC12 GT1s doing battle on a racetrack.
For most of us, there is a great thrill in watching cars race. There is an excitement, the feeling of competition and man and machine feverishly fighting it out to see who the winner is. No matter how often we say how exciting racing is, we cannot help but enjoy the crashes that come along with it.

In the late 1960s, Ford and Ferrari were two behemoths battling it out for world domination on the racetrack.

The Red Bull RB8 is one of the most inimitable machines to ever grace the tarmac. Powered by a Renault 2,400 cc (146.5 cu in) 90° V8 and utilizing a KERS system, this naturally aspirated, mid-mounted, 18,000 rpm mechanical chef d'oeuvre shreds the tarmac with a blistering 750 bhp before the extra 60 kW from the KERS system is activated. While this overabundance of power is optimized for throwing this chassis around a road course, the inner kid in all of us can't help but think, "I bet this thing does some sweet burnouts!!!!"
