For sale: 2003 Maserati Spyder nettuno blu/cuoio

My Spyder, #9926, has a rare color combination - nettuno blue/cuoio saddle leather and in truly excellent condition at 20,000 miles. It has a stunning body design by one of Italy's greatest designers, Giugaro, and an alloy 4-cam dry-sump V-8 engine designed by Ferrari and built in Ferrari's engine factory just as Ferrari builds its own engines, each blue-printed and assembled by a single Ferrari master engine builder. Maserati's CEO stated that his Company's most expensive supplier is Ferrari.

The Spyder's actual driving experience on the road is not all that far from that of my 575M Maranello: 0-62mph (100km/h) is 4.8 sec vs. the Maranello's 4.1 sec and top speed 176 mph (282 km/hr) vs. Maranello's 202 mph (325 km/hr). Steering turn-in and handling, especially in the 'sport' setting, are excellent.

The Spyder's MSRP of around $100,000. included its 'skyhook' sport suspension and the cambiocorsa (Maserati's version of F1) paddle shift gearbox. It's a car that one can be proud to bring to any Ferrari Club meeting and of course Maserati Club events as well. Two years ago I was invited by Watkins Glen Int'l to bring this car to the Glen for display along with six Ferraris during the Rolex race weekend. Had the opportunity to run some parade laps with the Ferraris that showed just how excellently the car performs. That weekend also showed that this is a car that's real fun to take on a weekend trip. There's a reasonable trunk and you can drive 300 miles and arrive fresh.



Price: $34,500.

Seth- Very nice. I did not know the Maseratis of that vintage had dry sump lubrication.

That is a lot of exotic for the money.

As I wrote, Taz, there's not a value near it on the market today. A hand-built Ferrari engine in a beautiful real sports car - nothing's close. Wouldn't dream of selling it except still too many cars.
