  1. lol...VW. Typo!<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. Don't agree at all. If you say that for instance the standard Biturbo can't top the Testarossa youre right. Remember, this is a cheap car compared. If we for instance compare the Maserati Shamal to any Ferrari, you will actually be ashamed of your post.

    The Shamal, even if it is 10 years old, has the driving capabilities surpassing ANY Ferrari and even the new 4200 GT.

    The Shamal is reputated amongst the lucky who has ever driven one. They will tell you... The Shamal is amongst the most Racebred and and most complete sport roadcar ever built. EVER!

    Have included a picture....
     
  3. The maserati has a better design but the ferrari better handling and performances, so for the road the maserati and track ferrari.<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. I'd take the Maserati. I love them.

     
  5. First off i'd take the 360 because its 0-60 time is only 4.3 (tested by c&d) and the maserati is 4.8(also tested be c&d). Secondly the comfort issue is about the same, the maserati is that much more comfortable than the 360. And 11secDawg, it is very doubtful that you own a 550 because your name suggests some stupid 13 year old, and if you do have a 550 then your rich daddy bought one for you(or maybe your "daddy" likes to be called a mommy) so just stop saying you own a ferrari cause you don't!
     
  6. Same engine?????
    since when is a 3.6 litre V8 the same as a 4.4 litre V8
     
  7. Ferrari 360 V Maserati Coupe

    Both basically the same mechanically! same owners, same engines, same gearbox, near same top speed, only difference that i can make out is the suspension. but which would you have?<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Maserati is now Ferrari's cheaper cousin, so you're supposed to want the 360. It's like the difference between Acura and Honda or Audi and WV. A lot of the parts are the same and the designs are similar, but wouldn't you rather have a Ferrari out front than a Maserati?<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. I'd take the Maserati. Not to many of those around. And I love the styling. Cool tranny and suspension ideas too.<!-- Signature -->

    what the hell are you talking about? same engine? not hardly... both made by differnt people, wouldnt call that same mechanically. 360 is made for performance as this one is more luxury.

    id probably take the 360 overall, but realistically would easily take the maserati if it were within my means

    and quit w/ these stupid comparisons! none of you make even RELEVANT ones!<!-- Signature -->

    You did know that Maserati is under Ferrari's control, right? From what I have read about this Maserati (which I admit isn't a whole lot), the engine is made using the same block as the Ferrari 360 and Maserati has borrowed quite a few parts from Ferrari's parts bin for this new car.
     

  12. are you kidding me? umm Ferrari! you said there aren't that many Maseratis out there?? and there are lots of Ferraris?!! <!-- Signature -->
     
  13. There is infact a Ferrari around every conrner where I live. I have a Silver 99 550 Maranello. I usually only take this car to the marina and sometimes to work. Last weekend I decided to take it to Lenox Mall in Atlanta Georgia. Turns out this was a "mistake". I get to the valet parking entrance and belive it or not two cars in front of me was some jackass was revving his engine infront of the crowd that every Ferrari naturally draws. I'm not the show off kind of guy so this allready annoyed me a bit because he was the perfect stereotypical asshole. Then I when I finally get out of the car my Maranello get's parked right next to.... A TESTAROSSA. It honestly felt like I was driving an every day car, yet it is a $200,000+ car. I don't know how it is where you live but down here around the Atlanta area I see a Ferrari on nearly a daily basis. Obvioulsy these cars are a bit less expensive then the Maranello but if I was more limited finacially I think I would choose the Maserati. That car screams individuality any way you look at it.<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. FERRARIIII :p~~~~~~~
     
  15. I doubt that there are many Ferrari's, except for the Sultan of Brunei's garage. What is the percentage of Ferrari's compared everything else? These cars are not only just expensive, but they require huge funds for tune-ups, clean-ups, etc.

    It's not that people can't afford them. I know a few guys who bought some of them, and they just keep them sitting in their garages, not even on their wheels. Ferraris require a lot of time, money, and effort, so many people just don't drive them out. I wouldn't mind a 575 though.

    " don't know how it is where you live but down here around the Atlanta area I see a Ferrari on nearly a daily basis."

    Well 11secdawg , I see about oh i duno..maybe at minumum 15 100K cars a day. Cars arent a big deal.

    the fact that ferrari itself doesnt make the cars is my first point. maserati has maintained the same factory in Modena for over 50 years, and its only been in the past few years that ferrari has had influence. and it doesn't mean a whole lot if they're using similar parts, because most companies all over the world do the same thing. BMW's sometimes have GM parts in them... but that certainly doesnt mean they're necessarily engineered anything like a GM car. Maserati engines are hand-made at their site using multiple technicians, and therefore best not compared that closely w/ ferrari's engines. besides, Maserati works on a much smaller number of cars than ferrari... im sure that may change very soon...<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Excuse me? First off, how is there anything wrong with my screenname? I went to UGA (Dawgs) and the 11sec stands for a 1/4 mile time. I guess with you being a new member and all you wouldn't know that i've posted pictures of my garage in the Bentley Arnage forum because people didn't belive me I had that car either. But I understand that, the thing I don't understand is why you've never haeard of people that worked hard to be successful in life. My "daddy" by the way died when I was 14 while working at a job that payed hardly enough to support my family. I'll respect that man my entire life. And my "mommy" and other single mothers with financial struggles deserve more respect than anyone else on this planet. Hs was left with no money and no job faced with the task or raising two teenagers. After I went to College (for which I had to pay myself by the way) me and my uncle had a genius software idea that would be grounbreaking in the technology market. Me, him, and another software engineer started a software enterprise that has now grown to a multi million dollar coorporation with nearly 400 employees. And all of this was funded by investors because we all were living on lower middle class incomes. My uncle died two years ago leaving me as the only chairman/owner/ceo of the company. I'm only 32 years old and I thank god every day for the life he has blessed me with. I (by myself) worked hard for every single thing I own today. If we were talkin face to face I'd kick the living shit out of you. (I'm on the picture as well by the way) It's people like you that don't deserve Ferraris or any exotic car for that matter. Instead of judging people you know nothing about you should do a little thinking. The only thing that is keeping me from completely goin off on you is the reassuring fact that you're probably some low life loser that only whishes he could drive anything even remotely related to a Ferrari.<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Dude, 11secdawg, I have totally gained assloads of respect for you. I will not deny that you have any car you say you have because you don't seem that type. And your story in a nutshell reminds me of my father's life.
    I guess I shouldn't be so probing about people's pasts but I enjoy meeting alumi from UGA. What was your major here at UGA?
    The next time you drive down North Ave. and pass by the Trade School on North Ave. if you could roll your window down and yell, "**** Tech!" I will forever respect you. I try and stay away from that Godforsaken place as much as I can.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. the 360 Modena, without a #$%#ing doubt.

    how can you even compare the most coveted car in the world (yea thats right, the 360 Modena!!) to this pile of shit moniker. the only reason they brought it back is to palliate some of the rich old farts that actually like the MAz... and this happens to be a particularly ugly breed. it looks like a Jag coupe trying to look like an Alero.

    ...nearly identical to the 360? Ferrari owns Maserati but that doesnt make these cars nearly identical. the 360 is mid engine rear drive, which means a totally different chassy, different gearbox ratio, and different suspension. not the same car.

    the 360 is 2/3rds of Ferrari's total production, and ever year they purposely make far less 360's than they have orders for, just to keep excusivity very high.

    however, if there was a time when the Maz had a chance at success, its now. the monkier went under because it was undesired, unreliable, and ungodly expensive to maintain. under Ferarri ownership it might actually be something. just fire the designers.
     
  20. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA i gotta laugh at EVERYBODY comparing these two cars! it's not really your own faults, cuz on paper these cars are quite similar (accept weight, cuz the 360 has an alumium chassis and the masseratti doesn't) well ANYWAYS.... YOU CANNOT COMPARE THESE TWO CARS! it's not like saying a CIVIC vs INTEGRA
    the only thing built by ferrari was the engine, and it wasn't even built by them, it was built by masseratti, with ferraris supervision.
    The masseratti is one big foul up.. it was desigend as the 3200 gt. 3.2 litre cylinder 300 horses, then they changed it to the 4.2 litre 8 with 390 horses, this was STUPID because it upset the whole balance of the car. I own a 360 and i drove the masseratti just last week. it's a piece of shit, and whoever can try to compare it to a 360 either doesn't know anything about cars, (i applogize for this because they do SEEM similar on paper) or has not driven the two respecatlbly. The masseratti's fuel injection system mimics the 360's and the transmission is very similar... the straight line speeed is not quite on par with the 360 and the road holding/handling is damn near pathetic if you try to compare it to the 360.... front engine vs, rear engine, how can u compare them anyways?!?! and looks.. well i don't have to say anything the masseratti is nice looking, but the 360 is the 360!

    so there you go. I have driven them both, the ferrari more extensively but i have seen more than enough of the masseratti to make a sound judgement. It's not a brother, cousin or even an IN LAW of the 360. yes it has a few similarities, because it was "overlooked" by ferrari. But in no way can it compare to the ferrari in the least. not straight line, not handling, not breaking, etc. If anybody wants to disagree it better be somebody who has driven BOTH Cars....<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. You'd better compare the Maserati with a Jag.

    Ferrari and Maserati don't target the same customers.
    The Maserati is more an all day car compared to the Ferrari.
    It weights more because it's more confortable , less focused on hi perfs (altough they're absolutely decent).

    Thanks to cheapness and confort , I prefer the Maserati.
     
  22. I like the Maserati but I'd take the 360. It's faster and sportier.
    I saw two 360 two weeks ago in Cannes(South of France). They were awesome ! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  23. They are both badass.

    well, you're name suggests that you're a stupid 13 year old kid who just loves ferraris a little TOO much......if you're smart enough to know what i mean.

    don't go posting your doubts on a guy coz his name contradicts with the capabilities of a 550 Maranello. that post of yours was a very shallow move there, bud and it shows who the immature person here is. but i guess your parents never taught you good manners.....shame. another one of humanity's wasted offsprings.<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. I will definitely take the Ferrari 360. It doesn't matter if there are a lot of them on the streets. I wouldn't buy a car just because there are rarely seen on the street. I think any car over $100,000 wouldn't be that many on the streets anyway. The Maserati is also nice, I would love to have both of them but if I have to choose one, definitely I would go for the Ferrari 360.
