First thing Georg Kacher calls out in the article, but seems it’s using the tub recipe from the 4c with modified suspension modules and a bigger capacity version (3.6 vs 3.0) of the engine that would have gone to the now dead 8c/gtvNice but “due this year” .
Nothing Maserati does is that quick- including the cars.
“A tough sell”.Looks like they’ve added a Ferrari lights front and rear, plus a bonnet scoop, to a 4C. Nice, but not inspiring or different. A tough sell though if it’s priced to match the 488, so it had better be good!
Agreed. It will if a) they remember to build it, and b) price it right. It'll need to pull in a new cohort of Maserati lovers, attracting people away from Porsche and AM, to be a success. Pitching the price at Ferrari levels won't work (in my humble).I think it looks encouraging and as for whether you would go for a Maserati over a Ferrari all things being equal, I would like to think there are still a good number of people who would chose a trident, me for one. I would hope that I am not alone here, especially on this forum.
Being made at the Maserati factory in the first place, the 4C is an honorary Maserati anyway so this new car is a natural step forward and let's hope for the sake of the brand, this one gets off the ground.
Perfectly pitched in price vs competitors that will be easy to topple. Who needs a 7 year service plan or guaranteed 70%+ residuals at 2 years. Let me find the website and start ticking those options boxes... whilst I am at it I will invest in car phone warehouse too. (He turns to get his coats)Just under £200k, so that'll be about Aud$650,000.
I'm gonna need some more share tips.
So they’ve made a more expensive version of a car they pulled because they couldn’t sell any?Looks like they’ve added a Ferrari lights front and rear, plus a bonnet scoop, to a 4C. Nice, but not inspiring or different. A tough sell though if it’s priced to match the 488, so it had better be good!
