car description

The Maserati Spyder GT's heritage comes through loud and clear, especially when its 7550-rpm redline is probed. Its engine is fantastic. It's a beautiful (visually and aurally) Ferrari-built 4.2-liter 4-cam V-8 that spins out 390 bhp at 7000 rpm and 333 lb.-ft. of torque at 4500 rpm, and you feel every pony and lb.-ft. of twist. It's a raspy engine that manages to be both free-revving and deeply muscular at the same time, with a sound and thrust level that make your eyes roll back in your head from some combination of g-forces and ecstasy. The 4200 has a rear-mounted transaxle rather than a transmission directly behind the engine, for better weight distribution as well as traction. It shifts firmly through precise gates, but with just a touch of notchiness. Handling is balanced and communicative, but the car likes smooth roads better than rough ones, you drive with your fingertips - and the gas pedal - and in this regard it feels like a classic Italian race car of the '50s or '60s. The other GT cars may be easier to drive, but you get the feeling that Fangio or Moss would go fastest in the Maserati. It's a real driver's car. This low mileage example comes in the unusual combiantion
