You can forget your dull Audi R8s and over-engineered Porsche 911s, the Masertai GT is the only car in the class to combine style, performance…and the ever present threat of road side assistance.
There are few cars currently on the road that combine drama and presence like the Maserati GT. Yes, you may point to a Zonda, or even a Lamborgini, however those cost more than Birmingham, and can only truly make sense on a motorway in Germany.
However for the money - RRP approx £80K - you get an Italian V8 engine producing 430hp, stunning individual looks, and a sumptous interior that includes four seats. Add to this a decent boot and you have a car that’s not just out to confirm that you are generally hated so much that you bought a car that people love sneer at, but a sophisticated man-about-town, who doesn’t put too much weight in top speed and ultimate handling.
And take time to soak up the knowing glances from petrol heads as they speculate when the Italian electrics will decide to give up.
