Bonding with my Maserati Coupe
By Tom R on
2005 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)
Just completed a 2,100 mile round trip from Florida to Tennessee. During this time I got a chance to experience everything the Maserati has to offer. My car was extremely comfortable on long highway in Florida and Georgia were I averaged 80 mph. The Skyhook suspension is amazing, even with ultra low profile performance tires the ride is never harsh in normal or sport mode. In Tennessee on the curvy mountain roads the Shyhook suspension kept the car flat and predictable. It is much easier to drive at high speeds in the curves than my wife's Corvette. Its overall gas mileage for the trip was 21.2 mpg, which is really not too bad especially with the aggressive driving done in TN.
You really feel that you are driving something special. Everyone young and old knows it's a Maserati and love it. The exterior is very nice, and the interior is fantastic. The engine and Cambiocorsa transmission fit car's temperment perfectly.
The navagation system and audio need too much input to use. The electronic clutch can get confused in heavy very slow traffic. For reviewers complaints about rough shifting. Remember this is a true manual transmission car so drive it as such. Lift the gas pedal slightly when shifting keeps it smooth.
