NOBODY DOES CARS LIKE ITALIANS.
Maserati is one of the all-time greats, right up there with Ferrari or Lamborghini. Designed by Giugiaro's Italdesign, just by the sound of the name, people know it’s fast, exotic, and expensive, even if they’ve never seen one and wouldn’t know if they had.
Happily, the Coupe’s 4.2-liter engine is everything you’d expect from a bucks-up Italian exotic. This naturally aspirated, DOHC, all-aluminum V-8 made.
For one thing, the Spyder is one of the best-performing, most emotionally engaging sports cars for under $100,000 Original MSRP you will ever have the pleasure of experiencing.
Not only is the new engine lighter, freer-revving, and more powerful, with 385 horsepower and 333 pound-feet of torque.
With its red cam covers and sculpted intake cover, it looks great. Better yet, when you zing it toward its 7500-rpm redline, it sounds for all the world like a Ferrari engine. 0-60 MPH in whopping 4.8 seconds, 1/4 mile in 13.2 seconds with a Top Speed of 177 MPH. Yes, she'll do.
You will become addicted to the intoxicating sound as the engine roars into the upper rev ranges, but that’s hardly necessary for rapid progress. With the 4.2-liter’s broad torque band peaking at 4500 rpm, this engine is always ready to fling the Coupe down the road with as much urgency.
The "Cambiocorsa" paddle-shift system (two L-shaped wings behind the wheel) is a lot more fun. The transmission modes also are integrated with the traction control, which allows more wheelspin in the sport setting than in the normal or automatic modes. There’s also a low-grip setting for extra-mellow starts.
The brakes are by Brembo RED, vented discs all around.with the standard suspension, gripped tenaciously, felt nicely balanced, and exhibited little body roll. An adaptive-damping system, called Skyhook, is optional. Skyhook has two damping settings, which are tied in with the traction control and the Cambiocorsa gearbox. Maserati characterizes the Skyhook’s advantage over the standard dampers as one of greater comfort rather than improved performance. We thought the standard suspension supple enough, although Italy’s gentle roads hardly provide the same test as the mean streets of San Diego.
Naturally, the cabin was packaged with Black Leather interior with RED LEATHER. WOOD ACCENT and WOOD STEERING WHEEL Briarwood Kit.
35000 miles. F1 Paddleshift. Red Canvas convertible top.
Maserati lets you do something that you can't do with a Porsche: get a custom interior and paintjob from the factory. Have a favorite pair of shoes? They can make the leather seats to match them. And if the chrome bezel of your grandfather's pocket watch is the color you want for the paint, Maserati will happily mix pigments until you're happy. This will cost a bit extra (bespoke prices haven't been set as of this writing), but you could still get three Spyders for the price of a custom-painted Bentley.
