2005 may not seem like that long ago, but we’re going back the better part of a decade to bring you this clip of vintage Top Gear
when Clarkson drove the Maserati MC12. The street-legal version of Maserati’s GT1 racing car (itself based on the Ferrari Enzo), the MC12 was a rare beast. Only 50 were made, and its 620hp 6.0-liter V12 was capable of sending it to 62 in just 3.8 seconds and on to a 205mph top speed. The Stig drove it to a 1:18.9 lap time, making it the fastest car on the show at that point, and the 15th fastest still today.
