    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    Very creative in the rims as well, looks like derived from it's logo

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    Is it just me or is that a RX-8 at the front especially on the side view.

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    You're not the only one. And the first picture Ron posted made me think of a photoshopped Vantage (rear part) at first.

    The car generally looks great, but I'm not that fond of the shape of the rear lights.

    It's hard to beat the Italians in design - the car looks great I agree with your 6-series remark, but as for the 911 you're mistaking the Hall of Fame for an ordinary museum

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    Given the way they shoot their press release pictures now it's nearly impossible to make any good judgment on a car from those alone.. That said the the car looks VERY promising to me, fit the Ferrari V12 in there and we're ready to roll

    1880kg though .. they better have spent some serious time hiding that weight

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    what a shame its not a pillar less design.

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    Very interesting car. Regarding weight and dimensions, it should be clear to anyone that they had to differentiate Maserati from Ferrari themselve. Therefore it was only a logical step to place this car more consequently in the luxo-cruiser department. Judging from the pictures they did this quite well, haven't seen such a unique but appealing car in a long time!

    I have a problem with the head lights too... a shame because for the rest it is gorgeous!

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    Ford was not so bad in 2005...

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    amazing front, ugly rear tail-lights... typical Maserati... had higher hopes...

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    That thing is redonKulous! Im sure it will kill in person.

    Hey cer300 , thanks !!!

    Nice car , I like it.

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    The front end has a hint of MC12 in it IMO, and I really like the Quattroporte themes on it. Love it!

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    Looks like something James Bond would drive...I like

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    I dont really like the front but I think its a picture of an artist but not real photo of the real car. You can see the glimpse if you go to maserati site the front looks more smooth.

    Can somebody "paint " the car into black and post it here?

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    right on this site you can see a real photo of front looks little bit diiferent

    I talked to my ferrari maseratti dealer today and have been told that they expect prices below Maseratti Quatroporte

    I think I will buy one and get rid of my BMW 750

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    and cl600 too :-)

    Thanks for the link, very nice internet-presentation!

    Concerning the car: I'm not totally convinced so far, sure it has some interesting lines, grill looks good, rear lights so and so, yes there are some similarities to the RX8 and with 4880 cm and 1880 ks this really is a very, very big car.

    The standard V8 with "only" 405 hp will be no real sports car for sure, more of a luxury GT, especially with the only available automatic gear box.

    IMO the car will be better looking in dark colours, let's wait until we can see it in flesh.
    Absolutely love the new styling of the wheels BTW.

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    I agree its GT more like, duo select or F1 or cambiocorsa what ever you prefer to call it will be offered as an option from the beginning

    Are you sure about that?

    I heard from my dealer that in the first year only 405hp version with automatic gearbox will be available, 450hp with Cambiocorsa will come one year later.

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    if thats true I will be hugely dissapointed and will not buying it

    But I have heard that duo select will be offered among with the automatic transmisson, I think the confusion is because in Geneva they will be showing the auto transmission...

    I heard though that duo select will be available

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    wow..i LOVE the looks! flawless IMO... as for the performance, i will have to wait for the official data..

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    Probably at the same performance area Carrara S X51.

    I like the design very much btw!!

    No, as I said, performance are slightly worse than current Gransport, same hp but more weight.
    And first version is 405 hp with auto box only, a year later will come the 450 hp version with new cambiocorsa.

    Well a dissapointment then for 405hp one

    But that 450hp version should be a killer

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    This car is fugly. They should've been more faithful to the sketches. The front is ridiculous with a long snout and a gaping hole for a grill.

    This is not going to sell too well. There will be no 2 year waitlist...to be sure.

    Re: new maser coupe is here!

    It is really great looking car. I hope they power it appropriately.

    Regardless of power, this car (and the Quattroporte Automatica) is going to sell like hotcakes in your neck of the woods Nick
