New engine?[edit]

Is there really new engine, because I havant seen any other article than this one blog. http://horisly.blogspot.com/2007/06/maserati-spy-shot-at-2007-barcelona.html, is there any other sources for this? I think its error --— Typ932T | C  08:03, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Even though I posted it, I also think that it is made up! But it could stay there for now until more sources come through. mattytay 06:37, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Its made up, its the same engine as used in all the current Ferraris and Maseratis but its not sourced as they put it from Ferrari at all. Its really a Maserati and Ferrari Designed engine used by both companies.

The engine is however built in a Ferrari Factory and delivered tested to Maserati.


Picture[edit]

I switched the picture back to the one from before. Not because I'm the one that took it; I think it shows the car better even though the reflections are a little too strong. Anyway, a creative commons search on flikr pulled up this image. I'm not sure how to properly upload images from flikr, but that might be a nice alternative to use.~ Dusk Knight 02:15, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

That image can't be used unfortunately; it is licensed, but it's got the non-commercial tag on it (the sign like $ crossed out) and so we can't use it. When searching flickr for free images try using advanced search and ticking all of the creative commons boxes. I agree that the angle you provided of the car is a bit better.

Maserati-Aston Martin[edit]

No offense but, the new Maserati Gran Turismo looks too much like an Aston Martin DB9. That's my comment!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Redferrari104 (talkcontribs) 11:28, 18 August 2007.

I disagree, but is that really a bad thing? The DB9 is one of, if not the best looking cars ever. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.209.19.248 (talk) 05:40, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

And the DB9 didnt take anything from the 3200 then? lol —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.109.157.242 (talk) 21:24, 15 September 2008 (UTC)


Reference[edit]

The first reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maserati_GranTurismo#cite_note-autonews.com-0 is no longer valid. It just links to the front page of "Auto News Europe," which no longer has any mention of a convertible GranTurismo. —Preceding unsigned comment added by LesPaul75 (talkcontribs) 21:38, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
