Maserati GranTurismo HELP?! Please give me YOUR....

  1. Hi everyone,

    Apologies if this is in the wrong area.

    We are soon to be Maserati owners once again and was curious as to what colour. I'm so fickle:lol::lol: and can't decide white or red?

    Also if you all can throw in some other suggestions for amazing vehicles that are on par, I'd love some input on what you may drive and enjoy.

    I want something that you don't see all around town. I had thought about Jags and other cute sporty cars, meh:smile:.... just want input:graucho:
  2. if your two color options are white and red i would go with white b/c it's less flashy. it's a beautiful car. edmunds just showed it in white and i loved it in that color but then again, the choice is up to you.

    have you done a comparison search on sites like edmunds that shows you Maserati's competitors.

    you may need to visit a car forum although i do love cars/car shopping. so keep us posted!
  3. Red is not a good color because it is the color of car most often picked up for speeding-you stand out too much!
  4. Thanks for the feedback ladies! I have no clue what we're going to do. Definitely keep you all posted! It's a big decision. We could very well end up with something entirely different. I do think the Mas is the direction we're headed:smile:
  5. I don't know what color you should get, your incredibly blessed to able to have that option! I'd have to win the lottery to make that happen and it never will as I don't buy lottery tickets! LOL!! I'll mention that the most beautiful car I've ever seen was parked alongside the Champs-Elysees in Paris on my last trip over a summer ago and I had to stop and was a Navy Blue Maserati converible...that would get my vote!
  6. Wow lucky, Maseratis are very gorgeous cars. I was lucky enough to go to a dealership once and sit in one! Haha
    If those are the choices I would go with the white but I agree with DamierLove they are very beautiful in navy as well.
  7. Other options that you could compare with are the Audi R8 or Aston Martin V8 Vantage. All three have the very nice sporty look to them and are all around the same price range.

    Good luck in your decision! :smile:

    OP, are you buying new or used?

    It really just depends on what you're looking for. The Maserati is a beautiful car, but from what I've heard, it's very expensive to maintain.

    There's the Audi R8 and the Aston Vantage too. Then you have the Nissan GTR which will be faster and out handle all of the previous cars, while costing about 30K less, but, it's not really "flashy".

    Best way to find out is test drive them....and bring me along. ;)
  9. I would go with White. PLEASE post pics on whatever you decide! Good luck!! :smile:
  10. You BET!:p
  11. NEW:smile:Since you know a heck of a lot more than I ever will, perhaps I should fly you in? You can help, yes?:biggrin:
  12. I bet you had a fabulous time! I'll have to look into that colour! Thanks DL, your input is always greatly appreciated:hugs:
  13. Hurray hurray hurray, I'm so glad to come across the only other supercar enthusiast I have seen so far on this forum!! The MaseratiGT is a beautiful car! If you've narrowed down your choices to red or white, personally, I'd go with red. It's a super-car so it's supposed to be a bit flashy...have you seen this breathing photo?

    Jag are amazing too but I wouldn't consider them "cute/sporty/trendy/hawt." Jags have a reputation for being heavy, luxurious, refined, and sophisticated and it caters to an older demographic. Think "wealthy middle-aged British gentleman." Jags are known more for their saloons than their sports cars.

    If you're looking for suggestions that are on par with the Maserati GT, may I suggest you check out the Ferrari 458 or 599 or the Porsche 911Turbo? Also the Aston Martin DB9 (or DBS).
