What's with the ridiculous heavy metal soundtrack?
I'm sorry, but who gives a "sh*t" about the soundtrack when, it seems:
"A scientific study conducted in the UK a few years ago found that Maserati engines have the sexiest sound of any car. In fact, 100% of woman tested experienced a spike in testosterone levels when listening to a Maserati roar" :smile:

My feminine side still has orgasms right down to my right foot :as004:

QP5 is the best looking car ever IMHO - but I have a penchant for sporty GT saloons.

Having said that I've had zero female attention from it, perhaps because I'm too old and warty.

The reason I bought my Lancia Gamma Coupe was in my yoof I overheard a lass with her mates in Bolton Town Centre creaming herself going 'OMG Christine, a Lancia, look, a Lancia!!!'

So I got one and no lass ever said that. And the above example was only a proxy bobby-basic Beta and I had a luxury Gamma Coupe....

Perhaps she was surprised it wasn't a rusty skid mark on the side of the road. :D

In the late 80's I was a junior service manager at a Lancia/Fiat dealer, we only ever sold a few Gamma's but I remember we had to tell customers not to put the steering on full lock because the power steering belt would (seriously) pop off. And as for rust.....In the mid 80's I also had South African assembled Beta 2000 coupe when I worked in Jo'burg- actually a great little car but again RUST!!!

All true - what knob would drive the PAS off the cog off the OS cam belt? Just looking at it (Gamma was a Flat-four) it looked like, that's not right! Broke my back changing the plugs - too low down!

I remember that. There was a specialist near me - do you remember Betacar? They did a home made mod for that problem on Gammas

Just watched the same program on the Alfa 4c and didn’t know that Maserati assembles it.
