    I think he was paying homage to the "ones that started it all", but saying, of the newer models, the GT is the prettiest...His black beauty is fantastic.

    And yes, haha, the A6G is just plain cheating, hands down, drop, dead, gorgeous

    It's a 2014.

    To the audience, I don't compare the GranTurismo with the older models, I guess it's clear that this does not work. The cars were positioned in different market segments and a classic car enthusiast will always prefer an older model or the other way around.

    But compare the 3500GT, Ghibli, Indy, Khamsin or the Bora (etc.) with their competitors in their area and you will recognize that a) they were not all in their times so outstanding as many believe and b) Maserati has placed in the current time an absolutely unique and outstanding model regarding design, style and elegance, this in reference to its market segment.

    Maserati is also convincing in the present... ;)

    Not even the GranTurismo can match the rear of a 3200GT!

    Well, you got the color right, but obviously this is the most beautiful Maserati creation. :)

    Perhaps the GranTurismo is just a little better looking overall than the 3200GT, but the car is a bit too big and heavy for my taste. I wish Maserati had designed it with the 3200GT parameters in mind. ... But, hey - that is what the Alfieri is supposed to be, right?

    This is exact the point Markus, Maserati is even in modern times again and again leading with its cars in terms of design, elegance and style.

    And yes, I loooooooove your 3200GT!
    Very close to the GranTurismo... ;)

    Let’s take it this way: All Maseratis are beautiful. That’s we are owning and driving them.

    The Granturismo is a beauty, and one of the most gorgeous looking of the recent years.
    They did respect Maserait spirit, beautiful, a nice V8 and a GT car.

    That said, historically, a Ghibli or, cheating :) , an A6 Frua long nose will have my vote over it.

    If you limit it to the Ghibli I agree. The Bora not so much.
