The Perfect Sports Car - No gadgets, Awesome engine, Beautiful styling. by Craig from Huntsville AL on 01/06/2007. Trim: 2006 Maserati GranSport Spyder, Owned 1 year.
Pros: An exotic car that can actually be driven! Most Ferraris get only 500 miles per year. This car can do that in one day. And you will have a blast doing it. The sound of the engine CANNOT be described via a web site. The F1 racing transaxle is awesome.
Cons: Being exclusive also means that it is difficult to service. Only Italian oil is allowed in this car. There are no "do it yourself" repair manuals. All parts come from the Ferrari dealer (very expensive). The stereo sounds great, but it is meant for Europe. There is NO spare tire.
Overall review: The perfect sports car. No "gadgets". Just a great engine in a beautiful car. If you drive one, you will want one. Maserati and Ferrari have pulled out all of the stops on designing this car. It has an Ferrari engine (from the old 360) and a Ferrari F1 racing transaxle. But it is more than just a racing engine in a small car. It is easy to drive and looks great. And you won't pass another one on the street, or loose it in the parking lot. It is relatively affordable if you shop around. Just don't expect this to be a "daily driver". It is a magnet for trouble. Insurance companies don't like it. Service is only available in a few select locations. The sides are smooth and just waiting for a door ding. Did I mention that it goes 180 mph? Enough said.
