So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

  1. i seen the earlier model cruising around town one niht, looked bloody awesome from the front, but as soon as i seen that back end, i nearly vomited. good work Maserati on fixing up that back end.

    Shen i saw one of premium images, the one down to the second row, then on the 3rd omage from the right, i thought it was the rear of a 1992-97 Honda Prelude! Looks exactly like it. I live in the USA, and i would have rather had the boomerang tails than the others even though the others dont match the car as much. If i were paying 100+ large on a car demanding exclusivity, i wouldnt want my ride to be mistaken for a front drive prelude when i pass someone by

    the old tail lights were far far better. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    geez, the dude who posted this topic is getting drilled...and some more for good messure.

    i loved the old lights. anyone ever see one break in the distance on a dark night - i looks truely awesome. and yes, like most have said, they were so distinctive and a truely original feature of a car that was all about style. i too find it very disappointing that one of the best features has been lost in this latest incarnation. luckly everything else is an improvement. but still, its a real shame.

    i just hope the Yanks like the new tail lights.

    From a design point of view the "boomerang" light were distinctive, but so is a person walking down the street with no clothes on. The question is one of aesthetics. The old lights weren't as attractive say, as the BMW Z-8 tail lights, which are equally distinctive without interrupting the flow of the design. Maserati probably should go their own way on a styling issue rather than cow to market research because brand exclusivity is their strength rather than their weakness. Remember people who can afford these cars often aren't buying them to be stared at. You can get stared at if you attach a ridiculous 3-ft spoiler to a Honda Civic. It's like the old Dean Martin, Sinatra, Crosby tune: "You have either got or you haven't got style..."

    those tail lights were unique to the car, just like the 4 tail pipes of the Zonda, thats what distinguished the 3200 GT from all other cars, now it's an ordunary car, with really ugly looking regular tail lights, a shame...<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    I agree.

    Man I would love to own a Maserati that made people vomit<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    I seen one as well but when i seen the back i thought it looked good from what i seen. When i seen the new tail lights i was disapointed.
     
  12. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    hay, i happened to like to like the old tail lights<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    The old tail lights gave the 3200gt a very distinctive look.
    These lights are plain old boring
     
  14. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    Oh, come on, the new ones look like Toyota or Hyundai... The small old ones are really beautiful designed lights, giving the car an unmistakable face (well, back-face, if u like...).
    But Your Post shows the truth: I asked Maserati at the International Car Exposition in Frankfurt, Germany last autumn, why they changed the backlights. They said: We asked the buyers from the US and they liked the new ones...
    Sorry, US-Guys, but u lost the award for good taste. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
     
  15. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    The old tail lights were the best bit of the car.
     
  16. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    I absolutely agree with the last few opinions here. And as for the guy who started this forum: "Do you really think that these Japanese-hatchback style rear lights are better than the signature boomerang old ones? No way! You have to be insane!"
     
  17. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    are u mental? the old tail lights were awesome<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: So, they finally fixed those bloody tail lights.

    I just think the old tail lights didn't quite fit with the rest of the styling (particularly the front end). I think tail lights like that could be very cool, just not on this car.
