    Maseratis are terrible. They sound nice but that's about it.

    Maseratis sound fucking amazing. But I hate their styling. So old and boring.

    There was one at a red light right as I left my office building today. Yes, I waited for the light to turn green to hear dat exhaust :embar:.

    Someone can look forward to a call from Lamborghini's lawyer, Ferrari had a company closed down for doing the same thing.

    The QP was exciting when it was new, but IMHO it hasn't aged particularly well. The GT looks nice from certain angles but really imbalanced from others. They all do sound great!

    How are maseratis maintenance wise? They go at dealer auctions for almost nothing, kinda thinking of buying one / fixing it up a bit and flipping it

    Also thinking to do this with Bentleys as well as those sell for super cheap as well

    A nightmare. You'd be nuts to own one out of warranty.

    Yup. I know a dude who bought a beater QP (one of those corner lot $40k specials) and the transmission pretty much exploded a month later.

    Another example of why these things depreciate like stones... $8k clutches sting on a $150k car, but it's deadly on a $40k one! The clutch (on the early Duo-Select cars) and brakes alone can be a $12,000 job and with consumables priced like that, it makes the car a really tough sell, hence they have to depreciate to a wannabe level.

    I still love the first QP. Unfortunately, the current one looks like an Infiniti.

    Ferrari parts means Ferrari prices.

    I don't think the qp has aged badly, I see a black gts regularly and I love it.

    The new version looks odd in the pictures.

    Thanks, prices are super cheap but it's on older cars. Wouldn't touch QP but GTs are available too. Good indicator would have been dealers not bidding for these cars and you can't really check it prior to bidding

    What happened? Let me guess: while running out to the grocery store for syrup a hot girl saw your car, jumped in and blew you on the way home, cooked you breakfast, worked off aforementioned breakfast, did the dishes and then jumped in a cab and left her number on the fridge?







    What? It could happen
