I like it, it looks really great, on the metal it's even better than in pictures!

Boxer, how is the GranSport treating you? Are you using it as your daily driver? I'd love to hear your impressions about the car, if you have the time, please do so!

I would have to agree with Andrew, a few months ago I saw a Granturismo in a Starbucks parking lot, the look and sound of the car was absolutely astonishing.

It's definitely a GT, although the new S version will help.

Personally, I love the GranTurismo. I've specced my ultimate version on the configurator (GranTurismo.Maserati.com) and drool was coming out of my mouth. I've looked at a couple in the flesh at dealerships, and boy, are they nice.

But it would make no sense for me to buy one. I've got the 550, which is better in most respects except the back seat. And I don't have to worry about a back seat yet...

A very mean GT at that. In August we had a drive with the Maserati Life crew and the second car in the rally was the new GT right behind a GranSport that had plenty of mods. The GT had no troubles keeping pace so I can only imagine how the S will perform.
