2011 Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic 2dr Coupe (4.7L 8cyl 6A)
I normally research a new car to death before making a purchase.
All it took with this car was starting the engine one time.
The exhaust note negates the need for the high end stereo, the exterior lines are sensual, and the luxurious interior is comfortable with four adults.
I have owned the car for two months and it is always parked front and center by parking valets, who I have seen scuffle for the chance to drive it.
This car is elegant, perfect for anyone who wants the performance of an exotic without the ego of a Ferrari or Lambo.
Fair warning, it will be photographed, people will mill around it, and pretty women will smile at you.
Comfortable seating for 4 adults.
Paddle shifters in sport mode.
Do not believe the negative comments that it is automatic only.
Paddle shifters in sport mode are much more fun than a typical manual transmission.
