The Forza Horizon 4 Maserati MC12 FE is a beast of a track car. Here’s some help with tuning setups, how to unlock it and a look at the handling, courtesy of A Tribe Called Cars, as part one of the series, Ben VS Goliath.

In the real world, the Maserati MC12 was basically just a fat Enzo Ferrari, which made sense because it used the Italian supercar as a base. It was also slower thanks to more downforce, quite a lot bigger and had no rear window.

Reversing into a parking space was therefore bags of fun, especially if you had actually bought one of the 50 cars made and were worried about denting 600,000 euros worth of car.

Luckily, then, going forwards is less of an issue. In fact it did rather well during its racing career and even beat the Enzo Ferrari around the Nürburgring, with a lap time of 7:24.29 (which is eerily similar to my in-game Goliath lap time below). Not bad for a car that was 15mph slower than its sibling at a circuit where you routinely bounce off the limiter.

In Forza Horizon 4, it’s even more impressive – even if you leave it as is and enjoy the 6.0-litre V12 engine. But then going for the race engine provides up to 1,185hp or there is the 1,500hp+ 6.5-litre V12. Either way, performance is blistering and it corners like an, erm, cornering demon.

Forza Horizon 4 World Record Goliath lap attempt in the Maserati MC12 FE.

Being relatively new to tuning in the Forza games, I have tasked myself with finding and making the absolute fastest car to tackle all 24.6 miles of Goliath, a road racing circuit that skirts the edge of the map. The Maserati MC12 FE seemed like a fine place to start.

It costs 6,000,000cr to purchase because you have to buy the Maserati 300S Coupe first and then spend some skill points to unlock it. So there are cheaper options out there although it does very occasionally appear on auction. But it really is a proper weapon when you get the right setup.

My fastest Goliath lap time with the MC12 FE is 7:23.854 and there is room for improvement, both in terms of my racing line and the tuning setup.

Maybe you, the reader, can help me with the latter or just post your absolute best lap time and the car you used in the comments. Because, sadly, there is no official leaderboard for ‘X’ class cars in the game.

Please be sure to check out the other videos from my Ben VS Goliath Forza Horizon 4 series, which covers the almost as expensive McLaren F1 GT and the Mosler MT900S.
