2014 Maserati Granturismo
+1I bought the GTS mostly for the sound, the great looks was just a bonus and made the purchase a no-brainer . But definitely a 60% sound - 40 % looks decision ratio.
So its been a few days and every one agrees 100% Maserati, no comparison.Maybe the ones I heard, which sounded very good, all had after market exhausts ; if the stock system is indeed that unimpressive ( vs. what one would expect in that kind of car ) I guess it’s quite likely a lot of owners install after market exhaust on them to make it much louder and perhaps even a different tone than the OE.
I would !
Related story : many years ago I was looking to buy pre-owned Ferrari 550 , in mint condition, but when I took it out for a test drive I was competent underwhelmed with how quiet that car was. A friggin’ V12 , and they had to equip it with the saddest sounding exhaust system, which even at WOT you had to open the windows to hear it whimper ? Clearly did not buy the car, no matter how much I liked its lines .
