Review of the 2002 Maserati Spyder

  • Maserati is back in a big way, with a sexy V8 roadster that will bring back fond memories of the Ghibli and make one forget the dark days of the dull and unreliable BiTurbos.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Italian looks and personality for under $100,000, the option of an F1-style transmission, comfortable cockpit, a healthy warranty.

  • Cons

    Potential for price gouging due to supply-versus-demand scenario.

  • What's New for 2002

    Respect for Maserati, as it resumes building real sports cars.

Itallian beast

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

I purchased my Spyder used in august of 2005 and it has been my daily driver ever since. The thrust of the V8 is incredible and the sound is very satisfying. The electric top neatly stows in within seconds. I previously owned a 2002 BMW M3 convertible, and their is no comparison. My M3 struggled in winter driving as I live in Minnesota, but the skyhook suspension on the Maserati makes winter driving suprisingly pleasant, I have driven this car through the 2 winters without a problem. The customer service could be better with Maserati, my car has had numerous problems with the windshield wiper motor, and needed to be replaced, but thats it, great car would highly recommend.

Ferrari substitute?

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Maserati Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

Dealer service was expensive but good, and many items were upgraded and checked. Engine is wonderful both in appearance and performance. Wide rev range and great Ferrari sound over 5K. A chain belt gives a Ferrari- designed engine performance without the superexpensive belt changes.Interior is beautiful, throttle progressive, brakes good, steering and clutch light, but first and second gear are baulky. Free dealer upgrade helped a bit, but still not as good as Porsche. Scuttle shake is the only other issue, especially when starting off for some reason, but overall this is a super secondhand value and a fun ride.

Spyder vs sl 500

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

I ordered both the SL 500 and Spyder. They arrived at the same time and I test drove them back to back. The plastic interior, cheap feeling switchgear and contrived exterior design of the SL compared poorly with the Maserati (and with the previous SL). The real difference was in the driving. The SL was subdued and perfect-- the Maseati was alive and fun!
