Here is another write up on the raffle that was sent out. This is completely legitimate and I can personally vouch for the organization that is conducting this raffle and the people behind it. They have the utmost integrity, and are very reputable.
The person organizing the raffle for the Columbus Citizens Foundation is a well known collector of historic Italian automobiles and has one of the best collections of Historic Maseratis in the World.
This is actually great exposure for Maserati and owners of the current generation of cars. A group of Maseratis will lead the Columbus Day Parade in Manhattan which will be broadcast live on NBC.
<<<<< As part of the 2007 Columbus Week Celebration, the Columbus Citizens Foundation, in association with Maserati North America, will be offering a limited number of people an exclusive opportunity to win one of the first 2008 Maserati GranTurismos available in North America.
The GranTurismo is one of the most highly anticipated cars, which is currently receiving worldwide rave reviews from the automotive press. While the entire allocation for 2008 is SOLD OUT, Maserati North America has graciously offered one of their own VIP cars to help the Columbus Citizens Foundation in its charitable work.
This special order VIP car is elegantly finished in nero (black) with supple beige leather accented by rosewood trim and featuring Maserati's 30 gigabyte multimedia system, with navigation and Bose surround sound stereo and their renowned Skyhook active suspension, riding on 20" Birdcage wheels with titanium calipers. It's stunning presence on the road or in your driveway will surely be the envy of your neighbors who will have to wait at least a year to get one.
For those requiring four door transportation, the Columbus Citizens Foundation and Maserati North America will also have available the opportunity to win the highly acclaimed Maserati Quattroporte.
The cars will be on display in Grand Central Terminal in New York City from September 29th through October 15th. The drawing for the 2007 Maserati Quattroporte will be held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, New York on October 6, 2007. The drawing for the 2008 Maserati GranTurismo will be in Grand Central at 7:00 PM on October 15th.
