2005 Maserati GranSport Review

Pros & Cons

  • Ferrari-derived V8, Italian looks and personality, relatively large backseat and trunk, a healthy warranty.
  • Awkward driving position, shifts from electrohydraulic manual transmission not always smooth, some high-end luxury features not available, handling not as dynamic as some competitors.

Mama Mia!
Edward Mantini,05/08/2005
2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)
Both the performance and the craftmanship of the 2005 Maserati GranSport Coupe reflect the passion of the people that make and own this vehicle. I have owned many BMWs and Porsches but none compare to this beautiful machine.
After Two Years...
Big John,03/15/2007
2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)
this car still has it all! My neighbor has a New BMW M5 with the V10 505 HP engine, and although it is a bit quicker than the Gransport or my Quattroporte, it doesn't come close to the feel of driving an Italian piece of hand crafted artwork. Keep in mind my Maserati, even after two years, sees the mechanics only for routine service, whereas the M5...well, let's just say it is a very lonely automobile, constantly craving companionship at the dealer. The biggest bonus is the sound...nobody can duplicate the sound of a Ferrari engine (yes it is a Ferrari engine) purring...just waiting to pounce. It's like listening to a symphony at the Hollywood Bowl. This car is pure sex appeal on wheels!
An Amazing Vehicle
2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)
Simply put, why would anyone purchase a Porsche Turbo for more money which you can see everywhere? The 2005 Maserati GranSport Coupe is a real head turner and a pleasure to drive. Its handling is unsurpassed and I love the purr of that Ferrari engine. Its engine delivers 400 horses, goes 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and has a 180 mph top end! Be a little different and get this car.
Ultimate Super Car
2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)
More exclusive than a Ferarri, more beautiful than a Lambo, a uniques sound, a fabulous engine, rich interior, lust on wheels, and a great head turner. One of the greatest cars ever built.

Should I lease or buy a 2005 Maserati GranSport?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
