The 1988 Maserati Biturbo Si Has An Italian Style Trunk Release

In 1988, Maserati took a page from the Honda handbook and added a small Si badge to the end of the Biturbo name.

That's right, this Maserati has a modern technology known as "fuel injection." That gets power to 194 galloping ponies and lets the Biturbo run the quarter mile in 15.4 seconds at a simply stunning 91 MPH and hits 60 in just 6.7 seconds.

That's 2005 Toyota Tacoma fast!

The Biturbo also has a dogleg transmission and an "Italian style trunk release," whatever that means. Take a ride along with MotorWeek in this epic Italian stallion!

So Travis, you are making fun of a 1988 Italian car, with a 2.0 V6 and two turbos and comparing it with a 4.0 liter V6 with over 17 years of engineering modifications and better tires.

Not good. Not good coming from the owner of a VW Beetle.

The 1988 Ferrari 328 GTS had a 6.6" 0-60.

The awesome 1962 250 GTO did it in 6.0"

When did Jalopnik started to mock cars for their 0-60 times???
