Recently, Bloomberg estimated that a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO will sell for a vomit-inducing $45 million at auction. This is after another Ferrari 250 GTO sold in a private sale for an even more vomit-inducing $70 million. Pretend those owners will actually drive their cars. Pretend that a small collision happens. What…
News broke today of Maserati’s plan to finally turn the lovely Alfieri concept into an EV, which would also have hybrid or plug-in hybrid variants. Who would provide these powertrains, you ask? Ferrari, that’s who.
Are you piping hot mad? Fiat Chrylser’s departing chief Sergio Marchionne said last summer that Maserati would lead the automaker’s way into the electric vehicle future, surely pissing off traditionalist fans of the brand. Now we have an idea of what that might look like: 0-60 sprint in under 2 seconds, and a top…
Ford announced last month that it’s phasing out small cars and now, probably not surprisingly it looks like Fiat Chrysler will take a similar path. Soon-to-retire CEO Sergio Marchionne apparently will cut down on the small cars and go in big on the large and luxurious ones. That means less Fiat and less Chrysler.
If you haven’t spent a lot of time in the city, you might not think that a lot of cars would turn up for a car show in NYC. You certainly wouldn’t expect a multi-million dollar 1956 Maserati race car to roll out on a quiet Sunday morning in the middle of Brooklyn.
Some 14 years ago an angel was born. That angel sounded a trumpet. That trumpet broke down a wall made of porcelain. Behind that wall: the Maserati MC12, a car that still continues to defy any bounds of reason or earthly restrictions whatsoever.
So, when I drove the Maserati Levante for the first time last month, I thought it was pretty fast. Meaning that, I didn’t feel like it needed any more power. Maserati, clearly, disagrees with me.
Maserati, as a brand, is an institution, but Maserati as an everyday luxury alternative to BMW, Mercedes-Benz or Porsche is barely on anyone’s radar. I spent some time playing with the Italian automaker’s mass-appeal options to see what you’re missing.
There is beauty to be found in the simplicity of this 1954 OSCA 2000 S. Very little in this car is extraneous, only providing exactly the bare minimum of what a driver might need to get to the end of a motor race. The design, while coated in a liberal sprinkling of bonnet vents, is incredibly simple. Complex shapes…
Get out there and win the day like a mechanic does when a Biturbo rolls into the shop!
The sad fact of the matter is that naturally aspirated V8s are dying out. There are only handful to choose from these days. Thankfully, the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC is one of them. So when we got our hands on one earlier this month, we did what any responsible adult would: we revved the everliving shit out of it…
The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC is old as all hell, but it’s still pretty and sounds great. It’s definitely best enjoyed through our senses of sight and hearing.
I think the reaction most people had when they found out I was driving a 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC for the weekend was: “Holy hell, they still make that thing?” Yes, in fact, they do and the world is a more glorious place because of it.
In terms of dinosaurs, the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo kind of is one, as the first GranTurismo came out in 2007. Surprisingly, you can still buy one new today and you know what? It’s still pretty good. Especially the sound.
Recently, we told the tale of a man who achieved a lifelong dream of buying a Maserati, only to have it break again... again, and again, forever, causing him to wonder whether he’d be able to feed his children or keep the lights on. But a kind soul on the internet came to the rescue with a simple fix.
Craigslist is a tricky place. Some people seem honest about a vehicle’s condition, others seem to be typing up things that are just too good to be true. But rarely are Craigslist car ads so captivating, and so truthful, that you’ll sit through 11 paragraphs of someone’s misery without getting bored. This was one of…
Time to fire up the Biturbo and tackle your Wednesday! If it, you know, works. Which it probably won’t.
