Summary:

A wild cat

Faults:

Clutch cylinder when being stuck in a 15 km stop-go-stop traffic on the way to Tuscany. All in all, I needed then 1 liter of brake-fluid per 500 km.

Was repaired at a cost of DEM 200 - at a workshop in Tuscany.

General Comments:

The car is in excellent condition, came from Italy when I bought it. I had a major service done at a Maserati specialist down there before I imported her. Even those guys congratulated me on the condition. Beautiful inside and out, incredible performance, extremely reliable and low fuel consumption.

Generally around 11 liters / 100 km.

Does need 1 liter of (best you can get) oil / 1000 km and goes like a bomb with a sound that makes you an addict.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
