Concept year 2005
Production year -
Engine V12

The Pininfarina Designed Maserati Birdcage was revealed at the 2005 Geneva Motorshow. Built on the Maserati MC12 chassis, weight for a production Birdcage should be in the region of 1111 kgs (2450 lbs). This weight is achieved with the use of carbon fibre bodywork and an aluminium and carbon fibre frame.

To help reduce costs a production Birdcage would shed the V12 in favor of a 350 bhp V6. The same reduction in engine size happened to the Jaguar XJ220 back in the early 1990's.

Although a lightweight sports car the Birdcage offers many comforts including air conditioning, leather interior, satellite navigation and electric windows. The Birdcage comes in roadster and coupe form and access is provided by the unique dramatic opening canopy.
