i would imagine that there is no motivation to do a V12 now, considering the V8 has been doing well. the 'upgrade' or 'improvement' will be the 7 speed AT for 2007.
a V12 QP will be disaterous to the 612 sales, don't you think? granted a v12 QP will carry a premium like all other V12 MB or BMW's over their V8 counterparts. I love to see one, but if I am paying close to $160k+ i might as well go for an Aston Martin Rapide when it comes out.
a V12 QP is not going to give a big boost in sales volume the company is looking for.
Thanks for your opinions! If Maseratti does not do a V-12 it would have been nice to see the QP - Sport GT with a power upgrade to 430-450hp. It would then be able to compete with the likes of the BMW M's and the Mercedes AMG's.
