2005 Maserati GranSport 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)


Review

this car still has it all! My neighbor has a New BMW M5 with the V10 505 HP engine, and although it is a bit quicker than the Gransport or my Quattroporte, it doesn't come close to the feel of driving an Italian piece of hand crafted artwork. Keep in mind my Maserati, even after two years, sees the mechanics only for routine service, whereas the M5...well, let's just say it is a very lonely automobile, constantly craving companionship at the dealer. The biggest bonus is the sound...nobody can duplicate the sound of a Ferrari engine (yes it is a Ferrari engine) purring...just waiting to pounce. It's like listening to a symphony at the Hollywood Bowl. This car is pure sex appeal on wheels!


Best Features

The paddle shifters and the butt kicking, slam you back into your seat shifts when your right foot is buried are unreal! And the sound... well you just have to be there for that one, but it is partly due to the factory stock TUBI exhaust! It's outrageous fun!


Worst Features

In a perfect world the Gransport would have a TRUE F1 Transaxle, and the chip from the F430 Ferrari (which BTW uses the exact same engine block). Then the only thing the M5s or Vipers would see, would be my tail lights disappearing into the sunset. What a car!

2005 Maserati GranSport 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)


Review

More exclusive than a Ferarri, more beautiful than a Lambo, a uniques sound, a fabulous engine, rich interior, lust on wheels, and a great head turner. One of the greatest cars ever built.


Best Features

Speed, pick-up, style.


Worst Features

Make it even more powerful.

2005 Maserati GranSport 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)


Review

Simply put, why would anyone purchase a Porsche Turbo for more money which you can see everywhere? The 2005 Maserati GranSport Coupe is a real head turner and a pleasure to drive. Its handling is unsurpassed and I love the purr of that Ferrari engine. Its engine delivers 400 horses, goes 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and has a 180 mph top end! Be a little different and get this car.


Best Features

The styling, power, handling and the engine purr. The fact that you can actually fit 4 adults.


Worst Features

Add a cup holder, multi CD changer, or garage door programmable feature.

Review

Both the performance and the craftmanship of the 2005 Maserati GranSport Coupe reflect the passion of the people that make and own this vehicle. I have owned many BMWs and Porsches but none compare to this beautiful machine.


Best Features

The body lines flows like a well conditioned athelete and the leather interior is a work of art.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.
