Maserati MC12 spotted yesterday on the Oberalp pass (Switzerland). This was part of an annual Swiss Car Club outing.

In the youtube video below, there is also the last Pagani Zonda produced (2018), with the Mercedes V12 (800BHP), normally aspirated. It was a special order with manual transmission and other mods for a Russian car tuning company.

Lots of classic cars too in the video. For those going on the Swiss trip, listen out for the cow bells at the end of the video, a very common sound in Switzerland.

:D Hey Duncan. No offense taken. Just thought you didn’t like that particular car... how odd, computers are strange things. Unfortunately I have no clue why it does what it does.
