Amelia Island 2014 – 2005 Maserati Birdcage 75th Concept



2005 Maserati Birdcage 75th Concept

The Birdcage 75th runs the full (Enzo-derived) MC-12 running gear under these exotic panels -- ensuring this is a truly rapid exotic as well as a design showpiece.

Under that huge glass perspex canopy: the visible steering linkage and inboard, pushrod suspension are quite magnificent.

One concern with the original Birdcage concept was that the cabin became a bit hot in any sunlight -- but hopefully the Birdcage 75th solves for that with air conditioning.

Unfortunately for this car's new owner... Based on the race-car steering wheel and driver package, however, this car may not have an HVAC system whatsoever.

Even so -- running concept cars do not come much wilder than this.
