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


Review

The vehicle while not a Ferrari, is a very liveable sports car. In 'Normal' mode it drives refined, much smoother than expected. In 'sport' mode it gets going in a hurry, with shifting up like a madman (I am not sure if the new automatic transmission is as fast) and the roar of a jet. It has no trouble handling BMW 6 Series Ms or most Mercedes Benz AMGs through the mountains. While its 400 horsepower seems light compared to the V10s or massive V8s of MB those cars are also have several hundred pounds heavier than the Maser. While not a Ferrari, it is infinitely liveable, and has the hp/weight ratio comparable to the best in its class.


Best Features

Leather, leather everwhere. Exhaust tenor. Paddle shifting in 'Sport' mode.


Worst Features

Larger tire and wheel package.

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


Review

This is the only true sports car GT that is a beautiful inside as it is on the outside. The interior has plenty of room for 4 and beats the heck out of the plastics native to the porsche or the jag xk. I spent a lot of time in my search for the perfect car and this is as close as it gets. Moreover, once a "stick only" guy, the F1 paddles have won me over.


Best Features

Smooth, fast ride, quick transfer of power, impeccable interior.


Worst Features

Maybe a cupholder, nav and satellite radio/bluetooth - but these are easy to get aftermarket.

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


Review

The car is truly exhilarating to drive and is a great value considering its exclusivity and heritage. I have had the car for one month so far and the exhaust remains intoxicating. The hi-fi sound system is superb and the steering/handling characteristics are exceptional. Lastly, this F-1 manual transmission has won me over traditional clutch shifting.


Best Features

This is a true four seater gran touring automobile with refinement, beauty, comfort, and performance. It makes my previous car (a Porsche 911) seem crude and ordinary by comparison.


Worst Features

I wish a dealership existed in Palm Beach.

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


Review

I had an 2002 Coupe Corsa and loved it. It had no reliability problems. Its tires got around 10,000 miles. I attended the Master Maserati Driving school, which used mostly Gransports. I was amazed at how stable the car was on the Road Atlanta race course. It was almost impossible to get into driving trouble. I saw the spy photos of the new Maserati Coupe for late 2007/2008 and thought the car was going too large and too much like a 2-door Quattroporte, despite the 470 (est) horsepower. So my warranty was running out and I purchased a new 2006 Gransport LE. I could not be happier or be having more fun. It seems to me, that if you want a true GT coupe, who wants bigger rear seats.


Best Features

The sound when in the sport-mode and the non-intrusiveness of the MSR system.


Worst Features

No cup holder, but who cares!
