The Maserati 3200GT is my ultimate car. When my numbers come up on the lottery (why is it taking so long?), the first thing I'm going to do is grab one of these beauties.
Ok, apparently Maserati used to be a bit dodgy in the eighties and early nineties, but then so was most of the cars to come out of the Fiat stable. A couple of years ago Ferrari took over the running of Maserati and re-kitted their factory specifically in readiness for production of the 3200GT. The result is a car that can easily compete against its price rivals from Jaguar, Porsche and even Aston Martin.
From the front it indeed looks similar to the Aston, but not from the back. Where on earth did those crazy Italiens think up those curved rear light clusters? - they are completely unique. Stuffed under the bonnet is a 370bhp DOHC Twin Turbo 32-valve V8 with a 6-Speed Manual gear change, which means 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, more than enough to enable a good fight with a 911.
I've been looking out for them on the roads ever since they were introduced and I've seen three in Sheffield where I live and one on the M1 (only briefly). So you get a big wedge of exclusivity with your supercar too.
Maybe ciao could sort out a Maserati voucher scheme?
