Although outward appearances suggest the Coupé is merely a mildly facelifted version of the older 3200GT, it is quite different beneath the skin. That car, produced between 1998 and 2001 and distinguished by its pretty boomerang rear lights, was powered by a twin turbo V8 and had its gearbox mounted at the front with the engine.

Running costs

The Coupé never enjoyed the same resistance to depreciation as a contemporary Porsche 911 so they're surprisingly affordable now. But don't forget that the running costs will be exactly the same as they were for the new buyer paying £70k and possibly higher as items like exhausts will likely now need replacing. Independent marque specialists, many of whom were trained at Maserati main dealer outfits, can help minimise the pain of a maintenance scheme that demands the car receive minor attention every 6250 miles and a further fettling at 12,500 but there's no ready solution for the sub 20mpg economy and group 20 insurance.

Emissions summary

The Maserati's 4.2-litre petrol engine returns just 15mpg on average, so it's no surprise that it scores so lowly on the eco front. It emits 430 g/km CO2 which is very high compared to an average family car, but fairly standard compared to similar performance supercars. The only saving grace is that buyers of these sorts of cars tend to do fewer miles per year than those that own average family cars.
