2006 Maserati GranSport LE 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The car is truly exhilarating to drive and is a great value considering its exclusivity and heritage. I have had the car for one month so far and the exhaust remains intoxicating. The hi-fi sound system is superb and the steering/handling characteristics are exceptional. Lastly, this F-1 manual transmission has won me over traditional clutch shifting.


Best Features

This is a true four seater gran touring automobile with refinement, beauty, comfort, and performance. It makes my previous car (a Porsche 911) seem crude and ordinary by comparison.


Worst Features

I wish a dealership existed in Palm Beach.

2006 Maserati GranSport LE 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I had an 2002 Coupe Corsa and loved it. It had no reliability problems. Its tires got around 10,000 miles. I attended the Master Maserati Driving school, which used mostly Gransports. I was amazed at how stable the car was on the Road Atlanta race course. It was almost impossible to get into driving trouble. I saw the spy photos of the new Maserati Coupe for late 2007/2008 and thought the car was going too large and too much like a 2-door Quattroporte, despite the 470 (est) horsepower. So my warranty was running out and I purchased a new 2006 Gransport LE. I could not be happier or be having more fun. It seems to me, that if you want a true GT coupe, who wants bigger rear seats.


Best Features

The sound when in the sport-mode and the non-intrusiveness of the MSR system.


Worst Features

No cup holder, but who cares!

2006 Maserati GranSport LE 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

When they say that this is a poor man's Ferrari, it's true. It has a Ferrari F-430 engine and its acceleration and handling are comparable. It is fun to drive in both auto and paddle shift but the latter keeps one more engaged. It clings to the road like gum and is extremely responsive in both steering and acceleration.


Best Features

The acceleration, handling, exclusivity, and build material inside and out.


Worst Features

The seats are uncomfortable and take a while to get used to.

2006 Maserati GranSport Spyder 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This little drop top kicks tail. Even with the top down on the highway you can carry on a conversation without raising your voice. It's a one of a kind vehicle that draws a lot of attention. In sport mode, the Cambiocorsa gearshift works beautifully; it's a bit sluggish in normal mode. Turn off the MSP and it definitely lays rubber down. The seats are supportive and comfortable. The automatic soft top is a very nice feature. I wish it had a better stereo, that's about my only real complaint.


Best Features

The power top, automatic clutch, and head-turning good looks.


Worst Features

Give it a better stereo head unit.
