    Ouch. Makes a 599 look sterile.

    The Maserati exudes pure sex. What the 599 should have done. Thanks to Jason C.

    Theres a black one in my complex, a few houses down the road.

    IMO, the front looks gorgeous; the back looks like they just drew it up one full-moon night (nothing compared to the old one) and don't know why the tire profile is so thick, makes those beautiful rims look like they are 16s.

    I'm not sure which wheels you saw, but the 20 inch trident wheels have 35 series rubber. The profile is very aggressive on the 20's.

    Saw one @ the NY showroom, very nice. Best looking car ever? '89-'91 Lotus Esprit Turbo S.E.

    IMHO

    Haven't you ever seen a Ferrari before? :p

    That's a bit of an outlandish comment to make.

    The front looks briliant, I really love the way they have resculped the grille, it was so ugly on the 3200GT and 4200GT.

    The rear end is ugly. The tail light treatment is out of whack to me, but I'm sure I'll warm to it.

    As someone else said, why wasn't this in the Maserati section instead of the 612/599 section?

    Cheers,

    Sean.

    There are many beautiful cars, so to say one is better than another is personal taste. However, the over all flow of the car is spectacular. The front grill is large and makes a statement, and the rear end is certain to be controversial, resembling that of a Aston Martin. IMO, It is the best looking Massarrati I have seen. Best

    This may sound wierd. At first, I hated the 599 and 612.

    Then I saw some pics of the GT, and that car made me appreciate the long nose look of the v12 ferraris. I absolutley loved it.
    I saw a GT in person; and in person it just doesn't do it for me.

    Now I hate the car that got me to appreciate the looks of the other GT cars. Go figure.

    I believe Jason C. also designed the the 599 so I bet he would disagree with you. :)

    Well lets try and make this thread linked to this section.

    I saw two today on the road one coming towards me, and one that ran along side - couldn't take pictures as I was driving my 612 which was delivered yesterday. I had seen the Maser GT in the showroom where I sourced my 612, and have to agree it is a great looking car. But here's the thing.....

    Today I had a Grigio granito Maser GT beside me, and a Black Audi R8 in front (does have a wide rear profile) with a Silver Porsche Turbo 997 convertible behind. It was a bit windy today, but as we drove along, or sat at the lights, all I could hear was the beautiful sound eminating from my Black 612 - they couldn't touch it. I know the Porsche is faster off the line, and the Maser has a great rear view mirror look, but as I sat in the 612 I couldn't help but smile, because in my heart I knew thay all wished they had the 612. LOL.

    Maybe biased, but hell the 612 sounded so good, I didn't even hear the others.

    I like it over all, but I don't love it. The side ports make me think of a Buick Roadmaster......

    The Maserati Granturismo is a gorgeous car! I've seen a couple of them on the streets here in SoCal, and also went to the dealership to have a closer look at one... Stunning!

    Personally I think the GT should of been what the 612 should have been.

    The 599 is fine the way it is.
