Thumbs up

At first sight, nothing special about this car, didnt like it from far, u move closer and you see their is a unique beauty about it. you sit inside first thing you notice is its seats Pure Leather like you have never felt before, 4x4 V8 Twin turbo this car is not only mean power but has the luxury to back it up with.. I test drove one in the summer of 1998 in Swiss,, and I have to say I still dream of it today.. people over look maseratis because of the past problems but you also have to know Maserati is not making any money they build cars for the pride more than profit I would love to see these cars and Engins work in the near future with Ferrari's help

4 doors, 4 wheels.......could be 4 wings for all i care. even though if you use you're brain you realise this car is crap, it is still a car that i would give anything to own. There's just nothing else like it.





btw the reason why Maserati wasnt making profit was its "brillaint" business plans. e.g. offering a 3 year warranty on a car that made 330 hp from a 2.0 litre engine.

Well said Pennzoil_GTR I would like to start collecting some Maserati's some day hopefuly it is a Pitty that they stoped making V8 Twin Turbos and go for an N/A V8 for American Use ,, I HATE IT when companies start doing that .... for american sales they said huh...

By the Way there is a new Concept Quattroporte designed by Pinninfarina and was aproved by Ferrari might see this car by the end of 2003 I hope they start building it it looks different here is the link..

im from stoke, up north. up north is alot poorer than down south, london way etc. so you will see more exotic cars than up here. an R34 is rarer than a Ferrari, there are 2 or 3 in my area, and there are about the same number of R33's and not very many R32's. so you're in brighton, ive never actually been there, did you see fatboy slims concert on the beach there the other weekend? wish i could have gone to that.
