thats one awsome ride

saw this one.. i mean same colored one at dubai in march and arguably this is the best looking maserati to date and also its quite long than the SL and aslo a bit longer than the F430 which was parked next to this one.

Not really. From every review one things clear, it's quite a heavy and long car, the handling isn't really upto the mark. It just isn't that nimble on its feet (more than an S, sure) but quite enjoyable a drive nonetheless.

the new S version will take care of that !! , but frankly stuff like handling are only on the minds of those journos , the people who buy it don't care , thats why the db9 is still sells very well , despite being inferior to the ferraris . sometimes looks is everything , JC agrees too .

I am in complete agreement on that. The GranTurismo is one beautiful car and I'd expect people to buy it for that one reason only, forget everything else.

The owner of the White one has decided not take this car and is instead going to get a White F430 so keep an eye out for that one. I'm sure the snaps will be up here by Kartik.

I am well aware of that, thank you. I guess the California would be more exclusive than the present number (and rising) of F430's in India.

Really good choice to change his car. Maserati would be a bit boring for him after a TRICKED OUT impreza. White F430 would looking stonking. When is that due..????
A porsche executive told me that he had come to see a 911 turbo too but decided not to go ahead with that.

Since you knew that, you should know that a person will not want to wait that long. Besides, if it turns out be a good car, the number of that will also rise like the F430.

This is way off topic. No need to get aggressive with me.
