    New Car For The Wife

    Just bought this for the wife pick it up Saturday.

    http://www.maseratidealers.com/detail?te...p;vids=10845557,11733296,11707171,10974839&vidindex=1&starthit=4


    I drove my S the one hour journey to the agent then drove this 3500 mile example for 45 minutes on the same roads. I was shocked at how fast my PORSCHE was in comparison to this 390 BHP car. The 911 would eat it for breakfast. Ok the Maserati is a fast car but now I realise that Porsche build big horse power 355 BHP probably more like 380 BHP!

    The V8 did sound nice though!

    Lovely car... for the wife!
    Happy and safe motoring for her.
    Re the 911, although my C4S has only had a few outings, every one of them is an eyeopener and truly makes me more aware of just how amazing a car the 911 really is.

    Re: New Car For The Wife

    Very nice car for the wife. I'm sure she will enjoy it.

    Re: New Car For The Wife

    Wow she is very lucky! Nice car. Did you consider the Aston Martin V8?

    They had one there at Greypaul and I sat in it. We had a budget of about Pounds55000 so we would not of been able to go that far. Its the first time I have seen one at close quarters, they are very small and compact. It looked smaller than 911.

    Re: New Car For The Wife

    Can't see the snaps - what colour specs did you go for?

    Now you really know how to enjoy life It's a great contrasting types of cars but in a nice way they compliment each other ie. the racer image and performance of a pure mid-engined open topped roadster and the luxury and refinement of an Italian exotic

    Interestingly here in Australia the price for a 4200GT, 997S and AMV8 is all within 10% of each other. Sounds like it isn't the case over there?

    Re: New Car For The Wife

    Black with Ivory leather, flappy paddle gearbox. Xenons, heated seats and skyhook adaptive suspension air-con but no sat nav.

    The difference is due to the much lighter weight of the 997. Just imagine if the 997 could become 500 lbs lighter

    Re: New Car For The Wife

    Got a new car for the wife! Sounds like a fair swap. I wonder what I could get for mine.....

    From a sign I've seen (adjust your numbers accordingly!):

    "Love is grand...
    Divorce is 30 Grand"
