    Maserati dealers are not selling them and gave me the impression they are not even that keen on sevicing them.
    If dealers have no interest in them why would the public in general want to buy one?
    As Andy said you go into any AM dealer and they will happily sell you a 90k 2005 V8 Vantage. They will give you the same attention as if you were spending £100k on a DB11 and they will put a warranty on it which knocks most other warranties into a tin hat. You have confidence in that car as a result and they know the experience will have you hooked and you will be back next time for the DB11 or new Vantage or whatever. They are happy to sell a DB7. That is confidence in their brand.
    Maserati are p!ss poor by comparison.
    This is what I was getting at.....and there are others ..Ferrari I think are one...
