The Mas GT was one of my favourite launches of 2007 ... Perfect blend of luxury and performance !

How does it compare to the F430?

Offtopic : Are you using the 6310i ? Whats with obession with London people and that phone ! My dads been a big fan of it(went thru 3 of them) and was almost depressed when it went out of production. Have heard they are selling at a premium in the london used market?

Hehe me too !!

The GT was my wallpaper for more than 7 months

It looks so gorgeous.

And CAR tested the F430 Scuderia, The Alfa 8C and the Maserati GT and they said that this was the most comfortable car to drive. It wasnt the sharpest or the fastest, but it didnt feel like Maseratis of old either.

And my god, the interior looks so stunning !! I am in love with this car !!

Sorry Mods for going off topic, Sahil i have been using this from more then a year, now was waiting to buy one but damm the production stopped, however got my hands on a brand new 6310i in 2006 and picked up at a price of 6.5k grey market LOLS.

Yes my new car. But i dont think i like it that much cos i drive the F430 everyday and had a F599 and the Gt is just as big as the F599 and the maser is good but only as a crusier to dash across the continent. Its got the same engine as the F430 but not the same grunt ,nor the appeal. Its a little bit understated but says i have arrived without being loud and brashy like the F360 or the F430.

Yes That is a Nokia 6310i. Im in the phone business and have used a Nokia 6310i for years now and have 5 brand new ones in stock when one goes kaput to replace it. There is no phone on the market that can be compared to it. I have a Vertu and an Iphone but never use them cos 6310i is the best there is -enough said. Simple and effective with no gizmos. You see people like Richard branson, Tony Blair, even rock stars using a nokia 6310i cos they know its special.

I have some mods done on the F430 done - Tubi with Hyper cats and the mirror painted in different colour shall post those pics in a few days.

Ciao
