hmmmmm, doesn't look like it takes much to own it. BIN @ US $4,950.00 ? guy can't give that thing away...offer $1500.00

They look the part. They sound the part. They should be amazing. But they're crap

"These cars could have been one of the all time greats, if Maserati bothered to built them right. Instead they were very badly put together and the electrics were a nightmare and so was the rust proofing. It had all the right ingredients but the cook was bad... It could have been a sort of Italian super luxurious E30 M3, but they failed in the end. Such a shame... "

Perfect car if you're a masochist. They have a well-earned reputation for spontaneous combustion too -- a lot of them went 'poof' within the first 30k miles. They always sell for cheap, because anyone who knows about them doesn't want them.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but, run, run away fast, run for your life!

Too bad really, because I always liked their angular Italian style too.

cody,
you buy that car and i will drive to your house or work and beat the dog shit out of you ;)

I wouldn't drive that car to a shit fight. I have a buddy that collects these and he will tell you they are turds. He has 3 or 4 and only one runs. This is coming from a guy that has a lambo countach and and old ferrari 308 so he is not a junk collector.

If you just want to burn money then I will give you my paypal and I can assist you with that too!

dont make me drive up there boy!

one of the best top gear episodes involves the three hosts getting aged italian supercars.
I think jeremy ended up purchasing a masarati, richard gets a old ferrari, and james a lambo.
Classic top gear, and does a great job of weaning you off silly car purchases.
( the exploding engine is classic )

I think the Maserati name is cool, but too much trouble to operate. Great "Top Gear" link - watched all 4 parts - makes our cars a great deal, and very sensible.

I'm not getting the car. I thought it looked cool, and thought maybe someone would share the same opinion as me. I see that I'm the odd one out on this one.

Put a 1uz in it, harness and all, and be done with it. The non-cognisci will still be impressed by the symbol.:thumbsup:

In my earlier post I did say I also liked the angular styling. It would be an awesome 3,000 lb. paperweight after it blew up!

You had to go there didn't you. I should have known you would go there. :duh:

On another note, I love the BiTurbo's but what can you do with a car that blows up and is still priced way too high? I always loved the 4 door Porte as well but ...
