One of the fellow Maserati Club Japan members who works near my office has one (together with 3 other Maseratis!): a beautiful red, EU spec (no ugly bumpers) model



I want one too :D

I just checked prices and these cars cost a bomb!



Dream over ...

Indicative valuations range between EUR 60k (for 4.7l models) to EUR 70k (for 4.9l models).

You know these are much more refined and usable than any other supercar from that period right?

Besides you need to price it against a 512 Boxer or the Miura/Countach and then it will look cheap. Also old cars don't depreciate as much but there is the maintenance.

I hear you, and having seen one up close at a recent Maserati Club Japan event, I realised how cool it is :cool:

Let's see. If all goes ok on the job front, rather than upgrade the GS, I might keep it and delve into a classic ...

I'm rooting for the job front okness. You need a Bora.
I need a Ghibli. :)

Saw a couple on the web... maybe thinking it's be better to buy a beat up one and get it restored...

Better talk to some experts on the car. You'll find you will end up spending waaaay more that way and not be enjoying the car. It's one thing if it's YOUR hobby, but if you just want the car, that's a very tragic road to follow.

Probably right mate, wise words.

By the way, since you are interested in a Ghibli, here is a shot to wet your appetite ;)

Thanks! That blue is superb. Since I have a Coupe I think I'd need a Ghibli Spider. I just need an extra 2 or 3 hundred grand...

Well otherwise what's the difference between the cars? Same designer and all. They are basically the same car in purpose. A man can dream can't he? It's cheaper than a Miura!
I guess if I found a nice Ghibli coupe I could trade the 06 coupe for a Quattroporte. I think I need a much larger garage. Fit an Islero and an Iso Griffo in there too.
MUCH LARGER.

Or maybe a Merak, 2+2, V6 rather than V8 … and about half the cost of a Bora …
