I like the sides and back, but that front end is awful, in my opinion. Looks like it has its lips pursed.

i really like the front end actually, it's a throwback to its F1 heritage I'm guessing. It's different.

The flattened fender edges are pretty cliche and they don't look right on that car, and the headlights don't match the fender. also they should make the side a little more concave to make it look more exotic and muscular.

Big news is the conventional automatic. The old QP got slammed in the press for the jerky clutch-type auto.

Can anyone say "Aston Martin"? I see a LOT of common characteristics with the Vantage.

Looks **** to me. Definitely holding true to the Aston/Maserati front end styling. *drool*

Z06 and that maserati aren't in the same category. luxury GT vs. brutal track car.

yeah, I've driven a quatropporte and several different vettes. You can't compare them. Driving a maseratti is like wiping your *** with silk. Paper may do a great job, but hey it's not silk.

i've driven a quattroporte with the paddle shifters. it didn't shift very smoothly, and the door hinges don't operate smoothly.
