Thank you for the clarification, Jox but be aware that this car will really burn your pockets with the servicing and parts.

Its very expensive to maintain and I have experienced it.

Looks SO badass.


Needs a set of sweet wheels with a lip though - the stock ones have wayyy too much contrast to the otherwise pretty aggressive design.

Yeah I still don't understand how anyone @ Maserati could've thought that ditching the boomerang taillights was a good idea... Such a cool and unique feature, almost a USP like the Jaeger clock in the dash.

Update: a little wikipedia research on the topic reveals the following:

The most remarkable design detail were the tail-lights, consisting of LEDs arranged in the shape of boomerang. The car was replaced in early 2002 by the similarly designed Maserati Coupé, when Maserati returned to the US market. The original "boomerang" tail-lights were replaced because they did not meet US requirements for night-driving visibility.
So the bloody Yanks once again ruined things for all of us

Just persuade a friend to get one, drive that. Problem solved

Haha I love it; instead of admiring this beauty some of you are complaining about the maintenance. It's a frickin' Italian sports car, they are supposed to have bits and pieces falling of everytime you take a corner. It's in Simba's rulebook.

Whiners.


j/k love you all
