Need you opinion on this car!

I just test drove a Masaratti (sp) 2 door 6 speed. The salesman said it had a 390 hp V-8 engine, non turbo. It was very fast and handled fine.
My question is this - 10 or 15 years ago, there was a super quick caR BY mASARATTI called the bi-turbo. the only problem is you were lucky to get 20,000 miles before it stopped.
The salesman told me the engine is Ferrari and the body is made in the old Masaratti factory in Italy.

How good is this car?
Will it last?


This is the same salesman who sold my the 550. I am looking for a daily car since by daughter totalled mine a few months ago.


12 cylinders or walk

first of all learn to spell it's MASERATI

and yes it's a Ferrari engine, the engine is also romoured to be the next engine for Ferrari's nec car (succesor for 456 or modena, time wil tell)
It's been said that the engine isn't working on full capacity but will be in the next Ferrari

So the car that you drove has to be the Maserati Coupe 4200
These cars are reliable and a joy to drive.
I only hear good things about the car, and i practically see them daily driving here.

And yes the car's are build in the old completelly restaured factory of Maserati, this was a decision of Di Montezemelo
