    A somewhat less well-known and less easily identifiable cousin of Ferrari.

Vehicle: 2004 Maserati Coupe GT 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

Have owned this coupe for 4 years and still love it! Wonderful thrill to drive and I drive it a lot (36,000 miles). Added tubi and what a growl. Always a hit!

Excellent car

Vehicle: 2004 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

I have owned the coupe for almost 4 years now and build quality is excellent. Only issue with the vehicle was the small shifter on the center consule came loose. Routine services mostly covered under warranty. Expense so far: Clutch change at 18,500 miles. Brakes have lasted over 30,000 miles, about twice as long as previous cars I've owned.

Style, class and fun

Vehicle: 2004 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

A car that does not drive itself, it requires an understanding of standard shifting. This car is hungry for speed, but once you get acquainted with it provides a fun driving experience even at low urban speeds. The engine is a Ferrari, so you are driving the best there is. It is surprisingly spacious for 4 passengers even as it looks definitely like a sport coupe. Quality design and finishes are noticeable throughout.

Sweet

Vehicle: 2004 Maserati Coupe GT 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

Once the driver grows into the car, passengers would rather be driven than try to drive it (If one is not in the mood to drive, the car can barely be driven; it simply says:"If you want to drive a Ford, drive a Ford, don't drive me!".) It's sound is peerless. The feeling of the climbing revs is better than the most exquisite foot massage. The interior is impeccably and tastefully finished. Although it's a no-gadget car, it is not in the slightest utilitarian (as is the competition). It is the best value car of its class. The head mechanic says it's a Ferrari at half the price (this engine is put into the F360, mfg'd by Maserati) Sweet!

True exotic sports car

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

WOW! Get behind the wheel of a Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa and you will understand the hype and accolades. I turned in a Porsche 911 C4S to buy one. I have driven a BMW M3, BMW M5, and the Porsche, and the Maserati is definetely the most fun of them all to drive. The M5 felt more refined and had more spontaneous raw power (6 speed), and the Porsche was all around more precise and smooth, but the Maserati is a true sports car! It has great power and handling with the most appealing looks. It has a great exhaust and engine sound even without the tubi exhaust. The F1 paddles gives the driver a formula track feel. Everyone stares at this Italian beauty. If you can, indulge. As Ferris Bueller would say, I would highly recommend one for anyone who can afford to buy one!

Vehicle: 2004 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

This is a very exciting car, whether you drive it or just look at it. The acceleration, cornering, braking, and overall handling characteristics are outstanding. It gets looks even from people who are not "car people."
