2006 Maserati GranSport LE 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
I have been driving this car every day to work since the end of summer. It has proven to be a totally reliable, strong performing GT which is much more fun and exciting to drive than anything German. It feels like a bargain Ferrari - which is exactly what it is. If you need four seats and a supercar you can use everyday, this is it. I own and have owned several BMWs, Ferraris and Maseratis, and the Gransport is one of the best balanced cars I've ever had. It combines strong performance, great looks and solid build quality.
Performance, super-fast gearbox, awesome noise with sports exhaust, fun fun fun to drive. Awesome handling.
11 mpg in heavy traffic could be improved. Could do with an extra 50HP, the chassis could easily take it.
