I think its Fiat's strategy that is to be blamed. Fiat had a pretty good strategy once upon a time. Ferrari owned Maserati, and Fiat/Ferrari invested a lot of $$ into increasing its production capacity. The idea was that Ferrari would capture the high end and Maserati would take the middle. Meanwhile, Fiat would position Alfa to take the low end of the premium market. But, when Ferrari rolled out Maserati, it predictably got greedy and overpriced the cars. The same trend is continuing here as well.

I wonder how they intend to position the Maserati brand with the roll-out of the new Alfa models (with Ferrari engines) that is happening now.

In any case better to wait a few years and buy a used Maserati, they have terrible resale value.

The Ghibli at 1.10cr ex-showroom would easily run up to 1.40cr+ on-road Mumbai. That slots it somewhere between S350 and S500 territory. And compared to the S, there is only one way this can go really.

I was very interested in picking up a Ghibli to replace my 3.0 V6 Jag, but have since gone ahead and booked the W222 S350. Something to think about, Maserati.

Default Scoop : Three Maserati's spotted in Bangalore

Today After noon near electronics city i found these three Maserati's coming in line slowly negotiating the hump near the EC fuel station. All covered but logo printed on it, ruling out the chances of test vehicles. Any comments?

I'm supposing one of them must be a Quattropote. Can't figure out due to the protective cover and the pic angles.
And yep, as Akshay said, these are the dealership cars. Will join the red GT and White GC in the showroom.
Great catch !
