It’s been a while, I’d actually forgot about this site, but noticed the money go out of my account for hosting the other day and it made me think I should re visit it and put a bit of content up. God knows if anyone actually finds this stuff. Anyway I thought I would brake myself in by discussing some of my favourite cars available on the current market. Over the last few months I’ve really been getting into Maseratis after finding a site called BuyYourMaserati, which is weird because I remember years ago thinking the Maseratis were the ugly ducklings of the upmarket sports cars.
First off, my favourite, the Maserati Ghibli. I love Jaguars, Aston Martins and BMWs, and the Ghibli looks like it has combined the best parts of all 3 of those brands to create what is a stunning car. The Ghibli isn’t exactly what you would call cheap, but it is pretty reasonable when compared to some of it’s rivals. For a new Ghibli saloon you would be looking at £49,160 to £64,720, you can get a second hand Maserati Ghibli for around £40,000 so it is still pretty costly. At the minute though, this is the car I would want to drive, hopefully in a couple of years, after I’ve saved a bit of money, and hopefully there a few cheaper Ghiblis on the second hand market, I’ll be able to get my hands on one. Or a second hand Maserati GranCabrio if the weather miraculously gets better in the UK.
The McLaren Mp4-12C is another stunning car, it is a little more garish than the above Maseratis, but I do like it, this would be my weekend car whilst I used the more executive Maserati as my daily commuter car. They no longer make the McLaren MP4-12C, or rather, as it is more commonly known as the McLaren 12c, so you would have to turn to the used car market if you want to get your hands on one. Despite the fact that you can only get a second hand McLaren 12C you don’t stand to get a bargain, the cheapest one I could find online was a 2011 model that had done 8,000 miles, and that was £112,490.
Another great car I got into whilst browsing BuyYourMaserati was the Maserati Gransport which hasn’t been produced for a good 8 or 9 years now, so it is nowhere near as current as the Maseratis I mentioned above, but again I think it is an absolutely stunning car. I have also had the pleasure of driving the 2005 Maserati Gransport half a year ago, and I absolutely loved it and didn’t seem to miss much of the new innovations that have been introduced to main stream vehicles since 2005, having said that I was only in it for 2 days so the novelty of being in a Maserati never dried out and probably outweighed the downsides of driving a car that was 10 years old. The second hand Maserati Gransport I drove would cost around £25,000 which really isn’t bad considering the car. Saying that it is definitely not a good car if you are after good fuel economy or practicality.
