Hi Guys!

This is an itch I HAD TO scratch! After selling my C63 late last year, I have been looking for the right car for ages! I wanted a step up from the C63 but the condition was it needed to have 4 seats! After looking at various Ferrari California's, I came to the conclusion you'd have to remove your legs to be able to sit in the back.

So after being torn between a 991 C4S and the Maserati, I couldn't stop thinking about the Maserati and had to take the plunge!

The car im purchasing is : https://auto100.co.uk/vehicle-details/Maserati-Granturismo-U25102/

Does anyone know anything about this car? (I know the red interior is personal preference, however I absolutely love it!)

Lovely indeed! The sublime sound of an Italian V8 is not to be confused with the wet fart sound of a flat 6 or whatever block is in a 911.

Your car Is lovely even with the red!

Sir, that is delightful! Welcome to the madhouse.
Thanks very much! Looking forward to getting behind the wheel!

The 911 doesn't sound great and it doesn't feel like anything special, at all! However, its a great 4 dour GT car to plod around in!

Thanks for the kind words!

Is there any events or meets coming up?

That looks fabulous and it’s good to see others recognise that a rosso interior immediately makes the car faster and far far sexier.
Enjoy!

I know that car! I used to own the front half!

Kidding - looks great!
That looks like my back half but a thirds interior!

Welcome to the forum, we're dead serious and miserable here. We never meet up regularly or drink anything but fruit smoothies and eat kale with everything.

The ferrari california was supposed to be a Maserati, apparently. Just like the Roma was the Alfieri...

Love the interior. Welcome, looks like you’ve found a nice car when you picking it up?

911s can sound good.

What a beautiful spec, well done and welcome.

Incidentally, you can repaint the red stripes on the c-pillar tridents with enamel paint. Easy job.
