Maserati Birdcage 75th

The Maserati Birdcage is a high performance sports car designed by Ken Okuyama from Pininfarina. He is also famous for designing the Ferrari Enzo. The Birdcage was named to honour the Maserati Birdcages of the 1960s and 75th was for commemorating Pininfarina's 75th anniversity. The chassis of the car is taken from the Maserati MC12 GT1 Race Car. The Birdcage uses the Ferrari Dino F140 V12 engine. This engine is also used by the Maserati MC12 and the Ferrari Enzo. One of the highlights of the car is the bubble canopy. The windshield extends from the front all the way to the back. Also, instead of having doors, the whole bubble windshield raises up. If the Birdcage enters production, it will definately be the match of any supercar.
