A whatt?? ... maserati?!?

So yesterday a Maserati wanted to mess around at a stop sign... there were cars in front of me and he stopped for me and guess what...

DESTROYED. Just thought I would let you guys know the beast inside a BMW 335i

BTW I have a JBS1, so that probably contributed.

How do you like the JBS1? Have you been able to validate any HP increase?

Are you serious?!?

Just like you wouldn't "race" your 335i with a +$40k car, I don't think anyone would "race" their +$200k car with a +$60k car.

Not to mentioned racing on public roads are not recommended.

Was it a Quattroporte? My friends father had one. He hated it and got rid of it after 6 months. Had a lot of trouble with the transmission.

they just updated the trans to a regular auto so I think that problem should be fixed.

nice maserati kill, but I bet their exhaust sounded better!

the Quattraporte is the Maserati 4-door sedan. the Maserati coupe is being replaced by the Maserati Gran Turismo. My co-worker's no.10 on their waiting list here in Canada. It'll kick all our asses.

Cool Masserati

Maybe it was a Maserati, and not a Masserati.. You know?

Kick our asses? I doubnt it... the reported 0-60 for that car (the new maserati coupe) is 5.2 0-60.... must be all that weight that even with 400hp it's not faster than that.

Maseratis are not that fast.

The Gran Tourismo 0-60mph is 5.2 secs.

The older ones are a bit slower.

I have gone up against a '06 Maserati coupe (my boss) and blew him away. He has placed an order for the new M3 btw.

The gran turismo is siiiiiick. I love my car, but I would take the maserati. I don't care if it isn't any faster. The fact that I could sell it and buy another 335i and an X5 and mod them til I'm on the cover of Bimmer is also a factor there though....

In that class though, I would buy an Aston Martin DBS. That's my dream car.

Maserati or 335 - definitely a Maserati anyday (if they solve their reliability issues).

Even though the car is slower - the experience and the smile it brings to your face is worth it.

Keep in mind if it was a Quattroporte, that thing weighs in at 4375lbs, vs the 335's featherweight (in comparison) of 3571lbs. Neither of these cars are made for stop-light drags.

Drop that thing a few gears on the freeway, and the Maserati screams.
