- Super sweet looks, great speed and handling, excelent iterior
- No big ones
Purchased As New
I love this car so much. It has incredible iterior for a sports car, and is so sporty. I make a 45 minute comute to work everyday, and i love driving this baby there. I have found nothing wrong with it so far, except for the fact that there is no ipod connecter like in my wifes mercedes S500

- sound of the engine, luxurious leather interior, excellent and original design by Pinnafarina...
- a bit thirsty when driving around the city. no ipod hookup
Purchased As New
this is one of the best GT in the market. great engine, great handling, exclusivity, beautiful design, and lots of interior room compared to other GTs. I drive it to work and the sound of the engine and the excellent handling makes it a joy to get up in the morning to drive to work. I can't wait to drive it everyday. I found the Sports mode to be adequate in the regular GT but for people who want a bit more speed and power the S version should be more than enough with 35 more hp....read morehide

- Great looks, adjustable suspensin that is always supple, gorgous interior, excellent egress
With a Ferrari designed motor and transmission the car performs exceptionally well. It handles a winding road sure footedly, somewhat like a cat with Velcro paws. The suspension is never harsh and does not intrude on the driver. The interior is a notch above other cars in this group in materials and comfort. This is a true GT car in which you can spend an entire day driving and emerge ready and eager to spend the next day similarly. At 110K the car is a bargain....read morehide

- looks great and is fast.
- AWFUL computer system!
The music and gps system are awful. No satellite radio, no ipod hook up. There is a hard drive "jukebox" that you can load music off of discs - but it takes FOREVER to load and if you burn discs that don't have the music info (title/artist) on it - you have to sit and enter it, or just not have the data. Plus, it's not user friendly, in general. The GPS - not user friendly at all. And this is coming from a tech-freak. (Range Rover has the best GPS system going) But... you deal with those annoyances to drive in what is one of the best looking cars out there!...read morehide

- Italian design to die for..both inside and out
- A bit heavy on gas consumption
I traded in a 2008 Porsches Turbo Cab and never looked back. This italian machine has the power and comfort!! I feel like a star. A real head turner everywhere I go. Love that there are not many around yet either. Such a GREAT car!

- Although the ratings are poor, my experience has demonstrated substantially better fuel consumption
- 5,000 miles and I'm still impressed with fit and finish. Leather to die for.
This is car that you won't find yourself mistakenly trying to open or enter at the mall... I have done exactly this with my MBZ S550. At the end of this year maybe make that two years, I will turn in my S550 and buy the newest model. I know I will be happy but not in love. Things will be different with my Gran Turismo. I believe this model has found not only place in my garage with a few other beloved collector's cars but in my heart and I'm sure the love affair will be a long one.
I have waited for some years for Masserati to be "a Masserati" again. I would urge anyone that can justify parting with a $160 to $175K to give the Mas GT a good look and at least a test drive. It will be an experience not soon forgotten.
Mine, well check back with me in 10 years or so. Maybe by that time the smell of the the hand stitched leather will have faded and a new model Mas a glimmer in my eye. Maybe then it will be on the secondary market... but Until then, Chow....read morehide

- looks, exclusivity
- steering, a bit underpowered, only available with automatic
The car looks fantastic inside and out. It has room for 4 people (for real!). However, it feels heavy and the 4.2L engine is not entirely up to the job. The breaks are not as good as, say, Porsche's. The steering feels a bit too assisted at high speeds. Unlike the new 911, the engine does not have direct injection (which would help with both power and economy). That could come in 2010 together with the new QP.
My main complain is that the car is only available with an automatic. Even in manual mode the computer overrides the driver at high revs (where the GT really comes to life). These issues are fixed in the 4.7L S model (coming in November) which, however will cost $135k+. Still, the car has more character and passion than any BMW. The Porsche 911 and even the Aston V8 are not direct competitors since, unlike the GT, they are pure sports cars. I hear that waiting lists range from 6 months to a year. For those interested, a convertible should appear at next year's Geneva auto show....read morehide

- An Italian Supercar Everyday Diver
A bargain considering Pininfarina styling with Ferrari based technology with a 4yr/50,000 mile warranty. The 2+2 seating is larger than a BMW 6 series and the hand assembled interior is awesome. Of course that engine sound is what makes it worth it and everyday driving is a pleasure.I enjoy this car more than my 911 or my Lamborhini gallardo....read morehide
