Maserati Sales

Anybody notice Maserati sales are up more than 3X from last year in the US? They are starting to approach Jaguars numbers.

We hope to help them towards 4x increase with a QP.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Ed- They are shooting for 50,000 per year. Will have to move a few to get there.

First month sold a lot of units and it's in Louisville.

Over the last year it seems as though I've seen more Maseratis on the street than in years past. As a kid they were as rare as hens teeth, now I see a couple per week, all modern cars though, no Boras or Meraks sadly.

Enjoy the journey so much you don't care how long it takes to get there.

This weekend I visited the Maser dealer and found that there are now DIESEL Maseratis.

I think a kid with the birthmark 666 under his hair was born....

The same engine Marchionne will be putting in the Ferrari SUV, presumably

I drove a rented Audi A8 Diesel in Germany 2 years ago. That car was pretty darn quick, it really turned my opinion on diesels around. But in a Maserati? Seems like sacrilege to me.

Cheers,
Scott

Diseasel powered cars have won the Le Mans 24, the world's premier sports car race, for several years on the trot now. If you subscribe to the view that racing improves the breed, isn't it now logical to put diseasel power under the bonnet of sporting road cars?

That's why I don't own an Audi, John. They're using cats in the fox hunt. It's just wrong.

I was, of course, just pulling your leg, Onno, as I am sure you realised.

Even Audi don't use diseasels in their top performers - no diseasel option on the R8 (well, not yet anyway!).

The Ghibli, however, is an obvious one for a diseasel given its target market of Audi / Merc / BMW / Jaguar saloon owners and the fact that the QP also has a diesasel option.

My E-class Merc has a diseasel and, even after having the V8 petrol engine in my previous one, I have no regrets about the change. The abundance of torque is the real selling point and makes for very relaxed driving, which is important (to me at least) in a daily driver / motorway cruiser. If I were in the market for a Ghibli to replace the Merc (which I would be if I had a saloon, not an estate), I would probably go for the diseasel. It would be my Prius!

A friend of mine bought the baddest BMW diesel and he is very happy. He says it's got serious poke.

Maserati have even tuned the intakes on the diesel so it sounds good inside when flooring it... To keep some thrill in owning an oilburner maybe. I just hope it is authentic noise and not through the speakers as BMW and Audi does it... Talk about downfall for the automotive industry

Diesel powered cars have won LeMans because the rules favor them, not from any inherent superiority of the diesel cycle.
