I always wanted Audi to sell Lambo at its dealers( to increase its popularity) but they inked a deal to sell Maserati's. I wonder if Ferrari dealers will be able to dump those new Maser showrooms they just built? With Maser entinering the Enzo GT as a Maserati race car... Will it go against an Audi in its class? Could you see both sitting in a Audi Dealers show room? ---------------------------------- Ferrari and Maserati boss Luca di Montezemolo recently disclosed details about the cooperation agreement between Audi and his company. Here below is the summary: Maserati's cars will be sold by Audi dealers all over the world to increase its popularity. Audi will also provide financial services (loan and lease) to Maserati's models. To Audi, it can be benefited by using the rear-drive Quattroporte platform. Montezemolo said Audi is now evaluating the platform and is very impressed by its handling. He said Audi will develop a new model base on it. The Maserati Kubang GT / SUV crossover has been approved for production. It will use Audi's 4-wheel-drive system, high-displacement and high-output diesel engine (remark: implying Volkswagen's 313hp 5.0 V10 TDI engine) and electronics to reduce cost, otherwise the Kubang project won't be profitable. More surprising is that the Kubang's body will be built by Audi using aluminum space frame. This not only give it a significant weight advantage but also make better use of Audi's excess capacity in the Dresden plant, which currently builds only A8 and a handful of Phaeton (the excess capacity is mostly due to the poor sales of Phaeton).
