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

Review

We have owned, and driven heavily, a few Maseratis from the 2002 spyders to the 2006 GranSport MCV. All the cars are stunningly beautiful, ferocious driving machines, and comfortable GT cruisers. The problems with transmission that were evident on the 3200 (pre GranSport) have been fully resolved to the point where Ferraris now use Maserati's Cambiocorsa F1 transmission. The ride is smooth unless you utilize Sport mode, which also acts as a volume and power control for the exhaust system. Responce is superb, shifting is fast, acceleration is amazing for a 4.2 liter v8. Compare the GS to the v8s of other makers, and you will wonder why non-Italian builders bother trying!

Favorite Features

Sport mode and Skyhook. One button changes the car from GT cruiser to track racer. The great visibility.

Suggested Improvements

Launch mode, for revved up starts. Like the Ferraris.
