I had the opportunity to drive the granturismo today. It is a great car don't get me wrong. Drove great, definitely on the heavy side. Nice amenities and very comfortable. However, it doesn;t instill in me the feeling of a maserati. I own an 06 gransport which to me defines a real pure driving experience. I know the red flag went up when my significant other said " hey sweetie this one has cup holders, and isn't as loud". I am a little concerned about the future path of maserati. Are they done building sports cars?. Also the amount of leather in the car is very scarce, only the seats and the arms of the doors. It felt as if i was driving a mercedes CL. I know that is the target for the GT but are they not going to make other sports cars. Unfortunately i think Aston Martin just gained a new customer.
