Maserati GranTurismo

Year: Starting at $123,000 MPG 13-21 The Maserati GranTurismo may be less expensive than a Ferrari or Lamborghini, but that doesn’t mean it’s low class. Clocking in above $100,000, the GranTurismo makes a statement and it makes a fast one. With a top speed of about 177 miles per hour (or 285 kph, if you ask the Italians ) this sporty four-passenger won’t leave you breathing someone else’s exhaust. The GranTurismo manages 20 mpg on the highway – nothing to brag about but not a deal breaker either, especially compared to similarly mediocre performance from its competitors. The GranTurismo is available as a coupe or a soft top convertible. The interior is luxuriously appointed in leather – available in ten colors ranging from beige to bright red or deep blue – with chrome accents and a standard Bose Surround Sound audio system. The GranTurismo’s V-8 engine was engineered by Ferrari, so it should be plenty loud and fast enough to keep drivers happy. Though it’s a little too chubby to really compete with the best of the best, the GranTurismo is an excellent vehicle for someone looking to add a little comfort to their sports car experience, and it certainly won’t blend in with the crowd. …

Maserati Quattroporte

Year: Starting at $127,250 MPG 13-21 The Maserati Quattroporte is a beautiful melding of the fine engineering and speed of a Maserati with the practicality of a sedan with room for your luggage. This five-seater is propelled by a Ferrari-engineered V-8 engine that allows it to reach speeds of almost 170 miles per hour. The Quattroporte handles curvy roads like a much smaller car, but the cabin still feels roomy and luxurious. The leather seats can come in one of ten colors, and with a similarly wide selection of exterior colors and Maserati’s extensive personalization options, the Quattroporte can be exactly the sedan you’ve always dreamed of. It goes without saying that this doesn’t all come for free. The Quattroporte lives in the $130,000 range, and with its unimpressive gas mileage (12 mpg in the city, 19 on the highway) the Quattroporte would be expensive as an everyday car. However, the fuel economy tradeoff is one you’ll make with any performance automobile, and while it would be easy to double your fuel economy by driving a Honda, the accompanying decline in driving enjoyment would be far more painful than a costly trip to the pump. …
