I am Italian-American and I love my family's old country.
I love going on vacation to Italy and that's where we keep the Granturismo S. I love Italian cars and I have been enjoying Maseratis and Ferraris on both sides of the ocean for a few years now. With my modified Gransport (470 HP with free flow exhaust, engine tuning and modified gearbox sw) I have been enjoying track days as well as long road trips from Chicago to California. Last year we drove 3500 miles in one month going through all the great national parks (Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Zion, Death valley...), a huge, amazing trip with the Maserati a faithful companion across deserts and high mountains. The car performed beautifully. We carried all our hiking gear and tons of stuff for a month's vacation. And we had our small child in the back seat.
This trip was just as amazing as any trip to Tuscany. Only the food and wine were better in Tuscany!
All the people who speak rubbish of Italian cars really do not have a clue. I have put many, many miles on Ferraris and Maseratis and enjoyed every one of them. Only my old F355 gave me some serious technical problems. All the others (Ghibli, Gransport, Granturismo S, F430, F550) have been absolutely perfect and a joy to own and drive.
I love Italy and Italian cars. Keep up the great work!
