Review of the 2005 Maserati Spyder

  • A compelling combination of performance and luxury at a "bargain" price -- at least in the world of exotics.

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

    A somewhat less well-known and less easily identifiable cousin of Ferrari.

My 2005

Vehicle: 2005 Maserati Spyder GT 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

After several months I love this car. Do not let others talk you out of this great ride. Ride is very nice, performance is better than average, get the tube exhaust. I am going to replace the audio system as this is the only thing that is NOT GOOD.




Fun to drive

Vehicle: 2005 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

We just purchased a 2005 spyder with 9,500 miles. Half the price of new and all the fun. So far LOVE IT! Fun to drive and the quality is better than I had expected. As a corvette owner this is a blast to drive and very unique. The overall quality is very good. Not many around and a real head turner. The auto makes it easy to drive for those who just want to cruz.




It's a blast

Vehicle: 2005 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

I have been an exotic car dealer in the past and have driven a number of expensive cars. This new <Maserati is just a super, fun car to own and drive. It wants to be driven. So far, its quality seems very good. My only complaint is if you are over 6 feet tall it could be tight to get into the car, but with the top down, who cares.




The affordable f430

This car is simply amazing, amazingly fun to drive, very powerful, and very comfortable. It's the best all-around car I've ever owned.




1 year of ownership

Vehicle: 2005 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

I have owned my Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa for a year and really enjoy it. The engine is the highlight, 400 horsepower with a Tubi exhaust, sounds great and it is pretty fast. I like the looks quite a bit but that is personal taste. Interior is well done, but fit and finish is average at best. I understand buying a car like this will have some flaws and so far the car has been in twice for issues. I like this ride because you don't see many of them on the roads, like Mercedes SL 500's and Jaguar XK8, and Porsche 911's. This car is understated compared to pricier exotics.




"my baby"

Vehicle: 2005 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa 2dr Convertible (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

I bought my Maserati Spyder on the Internet. I have driven many different, high-end sports cars and my Spyder is the most fun to drive because of the Formual One transmission. The car can be driven in automaic mode or you can shift manually with the paddles on the steering column. The top goes up or down in about 30 seconds with the touch of a button, and it is really a head turner on the road. I had the Tubi Eghaust put on mine and it souds awesome! I love it!
