Maserati Coupe

Maserati Coupe

Makuhari Messe, Japan

Almost as sought-after as Ferrari in Asia, Maserati is one of the few "magic" names in cars where quality is not even a question ... at least in the 21st century, it shouldn't be. Known as the "poor man's Ferrari" even though no poor man every bought one, Maserati's new coupe is blatantly gorgeous and undeniably sexy. Maserati's press material reads: "In the 1950s, the track-inspired engineering of a two-liter Maserati A6G was given an aerodynamic Coupe body by the legendary Carrozzeria Frua. The resulting car was called the GranTurismo. Maserati has revived that name for this version of the Coupe, which, they say, "was inspired by the fiery Trident model that competes in the Trofeo Maserati and a host of GT Championships right across Europe."
