Now that is pushing it too far - a 15k granturismo

80k GT's have been around 21k recently so this is pretty low but it has issues which he doesn't list so could still be a 21k plus car once done depending on what they are. Interesting price though and as he has the parts and if you can fix it yourself it could be a cheap GT especially if you can get another £500 off.

cheapish way to scratch an itch dependant on what the issues are obviously. Would have been tempted for a daily, especially with that red interior, if I did not use the fugly as a daily which although thirsty has been very well behaved reliability wise (que the breakdown round the corner ;))

Its like the owner heard all the comments about why a few £K extra and the 4.7 is a better deal..That is cheap . I might have to buy another Maserati if this carries on!! :eek:

What's the worst it could cost to put right? Even the much-feared variator issue is only a noise. There's no clutch. So maybe brakes, but with no silly bimetallic GTS brake rotors to contend with. Leaky cam cover or timing gear gasket? Suspension creaky and bushes perished? It could be a helluva bargain.

That interior though - oof!

My 4200 has a red leather interior. I never thought Id like such a thing...and this GT is why. Yuk here too...!

Well, I guess I’m clearly in the minority.
My MC shift had the Rosso interior and we loved it....got many compliments on it too.
It does not photograph well though....
Cheap car for someone.

I think deep red interiors look great, wear well and will come back into fashion. Works great with black paintwork and if trim colour is part of the reason for low price all the better.

Never realised it was out of fashion. Red interiors are still desirable on plenty of cars.

Recently sold an E46 M3 with a red (Imola) interior, no problem at all. I have a black interior, but I'd have no problem with red.

Red is nice the right red like a Bordeaux but lipstick or as I like to call it "Dog Knob Red" is gopping and puke inducing.

Red is an acquired taste and it depends just how much is red and the shade. I think GT cars can carry it off better than everyday runabouts.
