    That's the way that car was designed and was always supposed to look like (pic of a Euro 3200 GT),until stupid "consumer clinics" in US decided they liked a more "traditional" look like we have in the V8 model.

    Shoot, that's only about two day's dust accumulation, out west of Houston! LOL!

    Remember all the trouble the LAST time we started the "Abandoned Car" thread! :D :D :D :D

    Nice. The 3200 is a beast.

    This is Estonia? Looks like it to me. More info about that car? Those are quite rare there.

    Funny the Maser has the Plate starting "911."

    Any car in Barstow, CA yesterday is going to look like that after only one afternoon - they had a massive dust storm that took an hour to drive through.

    A Maserati dealer here in Germany converted at least 5 cars to that "Boomerang"-specs! Looks much nicer.

    btw, there is another reason for the change of that design as the "official" US-version - but nobody in Modena would tell you and speak out the name of the person who was responsible for this "tastefull" modification...!

    Today everybody in Modena -and the rest of this planet!!- knows that this conversion was a major mistake! Typical Italy: 2 steps forward - and then 1 step back!

    Ciao!

    If you know the name Walter, then please tell. :)

    One of the reasons I heard of the light change was due to U.S.A. Department Of Transportation regulations - which includes the additional required Center Mounted Brake Light or "cyclops" light. However, from the above conversion pictures, the Boomerang lights work quite well with the CMBL.

    Basically yes, Estonia's capital, Tallinn.. It has pre-2004 plates on... but it doesn't mean it's abandoned...

    Am I the only one bothered by the people writing in the dust?
    That is going to scratch the paint for sure.

    I much prefer the boomerang tail lights !

    as a 1:18 scale collector I noticed this :

    the Bburago model features the boomerang

    whereas the Maisto have the US version tail lights

    needless to say I traded my Maisto Spider in on for a Bburago Coupe :)
