Nice , except for the concaving tooth grille . I always had a soft spot for Maserati. The C pillar is looking a lot like Aston Martin.

That is absolutely kick-arse. But the red scheme is a bit loud. Ofcourse there would be customizations ....

The MC12, the Quattroporte and now aother brilliant looking car. Looks great from every angle. The front is particularly impressive. Would love to have one in either silver or black.

I found it kinda playboyish. Love it!
@maxbhp - These days almost every new car is looking like some other. I guess it's OK as long as the end product looks nice.

Great design...rear light department needs a little touch-up. Front lights remind me of the current-gen Lexus IS series.

As a whole though, this one looks beautifully beastly.

The 4.2-liter V8, derived from the Ferrari-designed engine in the Quattroporte, gets a power spike of 9 horsepower up to 405. It's driving through a fully automatic gearbox – presumably the new ZF unit recently placed in the Quattroporte – but we'd speculate the paddle-shifted sequential will find its way in their eventually despite the anticipated availability of paddle shifters on the torque-converting auto-box. Weight is distributed, as reported, in an ideal 49/51 rear bias

This reminds me of one ad's headline for Maserati. It was a simple shot of one Maserati on road.

Headline says: You don't get to see too many Maseratis on road. There are two reasons.

1. There are not too many Maseratis.
2. They're Maseratis.
