I have had the Granturismo for 4 years. It has been an awesome car. Even though it was in production for such a long time, its still a great looking car. The way things are going with v6 engines producing more power, hybrids and electric cars. The Granturismo is like the last of its kind with a naturally aspirated V8, I plan on keeping it for a while

Enjoy your video and your comments. I just finished 5 years with mine in Grigio Nuvolari. Problem free except for driver's visor - a little loose. Some day I'll need to spring for a new one. Good luck!

I have a 2016 C7 Corvette Z51 and thinking about buying a Maserati. How would you compare the two such as the interior quality, power response, and maintenance average costs? Thanks.

The ride quality and interior quality feels better in the Maserati. Plus I really love the sound of the Maserati. The Corvette will feel quicker, I think the Granturismo is rated for about 4.7sec 0-60 compared to around 4.0 sec on the C7.
I can't really talk on the maintenance cost because I do my own oil changes on the Maserati, I spend like $120- $130.
On the Corvette I have also done my own maintenance including the fluid changes, Brake fluid flush, transmission, coolant differential, drive belt replace, battery. I also have a wheel bearing go bad at around 40k miles.

Yeah PAIN in the a$$ each time I have long legs and have broke it off 4 times.....right now its at a shop and I told them to fabricate several "L" brackets, paint them black and permanently attach to the seat itself...actually am willing to sacrifice looks to get it attached FOR GOOD.

get yourself the new C8 vette whole different ballgame. Have seat time in all 3 mentioned cars.
Only issue is you’ll have a year wait on a C8 unless you wanna pay premium of 25K for a used one.
