    Hi guys,
    Been offered a 3200gt, less than 25K M ODO, for arround $16K.
    Needs some TLC for maybe around $7-8K (guessing, didn't check the car yet)
    If all checks close to that, what do U think about the car?
    Is it worth it?
    THX

    Check mobile.de as that’s a Europe only car as far as I know.

    The 3200GT is a fantastic car, but there are a number of known issues; the sportsmaserati site in the UK has an excellent thread on "what to (watch) look for". Highly recommended.

    A small handful were imported grey market in the US.

    Around 2000 I drove one in Fort Lauderdale, dark blue, manual, which had been imported by a Miami based French real estate guy. I think his name was Michel A.

    Yup, I guess U R right. The car I am reffering to is not in the US nor it is going to be bought for the US. THX.
    BTW, What is UR impression about the car?

    I have had mine (a 1999 MY with manual box) since 2015, and clocked about 20,000 Kms in those years, including two long European trips. Mine has been totally dependable, and required no major outlays aside from consumables and servicing.

    The car is quick (even by today's standards) and agile, and being a manual very engaging to drive. Very stable and surefooted at autobahn speeds (200 Km/h++).

    Doc frankly I drove it in town for ten minutes 20 years ago. It felt very nice you could sense or hear the turbos can't recall which. It was not a proper article test drive.

    Gabriel that is good to hear I was wondering about their reliability, great.
