The reaction I get has always been good, I think in general the maserati is a relatively un-known exotic brand until recent years, for most of the regular people out there.
Most people just say wow, because the car is beautiful more than because they know the brand. I think they always see us as having class, and real taste.
I love lamborghinis for what they represent- bad boy toys, and I see one in my near future (planned) before I even get the ferrari. Its raw, exotic look at me now designed, and just a beast. Unfortunately a lot of haters out there look at is a I got money and I'm obnoxious brand. I don't think so at all. It has is niche.
Ferrari is a more F1 racing heritage track oriented beauty, and has a built in audience. I consider my gransport somewhat beating with a ferrari heart being that they share the same engine and it was made by ferrari when they had controlling interest, so its a little rough around the edges and just a pocket beast- ferrari if you ask me. I would like to get the F430 later on, when they become lower In price.
Aston martin- I like the james bond heritage. But personally I love italian cars for their lines and quirks. But again, this has its niche as well. Polished, refined beast in a tuxedo.
Everyone knows the ferrari and lamborghini from all the movies and television exposure, cause I'm sure people don't see them enough in the streets. I think the maserati evokes a sense of exclusivity paired with luxury compared to none. Its a gentlemens brand, with flair and sexiness that is not comparable to ferrari or lamborghini because it has a totally different identity to those two, and isn't even trying to compare at all. Maserati is maserati, a true luxury GT touring car, and the better for it.
I think when people see the car and the reaction I get, is always the same. Awe, respect, and they plain think the car is really sexy. Just the right balance of luxury and sportines for me. I don't want or need a road racing car only. I want to be in a luxurious interior, and be able to spank other cars on the road if I feel like it. That's the reaction for me-
