Only problem about the GranTurismo is that it looks hideous, but it is good to see another marque in GT3 racing. Not sure Ferrari would like a 458 Italia beaten by a GranTurismo on the same race track. Razz

hideous? Seriously? It's about the prettiest car in production at the moment... It makes in the 458 look wooden in comparison. Plus you know it's normally driven by hit men and louis walsh. No idea who he is but he said he owned one on top gear.

Nope, the Gran Turismo visually doesn't work for me. It looks Japanese. It has that nasty, gaping mouth from a Peugeot, and the rear looks ordinary.

A Jaguar XK or Porsche 991 are far prettier cars.

Personally, the 458 Italia has a wow factor and couldn't be anything but a Ferrari - a Maserati should look special - but the Gran Turismo looks like a mish-match of a number of humdrum, mainstream cars.

The Maserati sounds stunning, but apart from that it doesn't appeal as a road car. Too heavy, too much of a poor man's Ferrari and out of its depth.
