2 Black, 2 Red yours and your friends. 2 on AT currently. The silver one the lilac one and the grey one. I thinks that the lot??
Yep! That must mean that the silver one I went to see at Car-a-Lot is the one my friend on FB now owns as his is a silver 2006 model..........Makes sense!!?
Nope, you’ve both forgot about me... I asked as I have a 2004 facelift GT (silver with black) so we’re up to 11 ;)

Pretty sure there was a thread in the past discussing this and the number was higher, 315 is in my mind for some reason.

So is it 10 in UK or are there more? Don’t understand why Maserati would say 10. Could it be in relation to a particular year or colour combo as I think you mentioned earlier?

Don't mind too much about spec, must have less than 70k miles and have full service history! No Cambiocorsa cars
Hi, I have just bought a different one but this was a good one. And a nice guy. Needs some work but it runs well. Took it out for a drive. Good service history. He spent around 2K on it last year. New clutch at 59K I think, or there abouts. Got his details if you want them. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1217583

315 in RHD?.... I must say that 10 does sound a tad low!!

As have I; silver on red. 2006 !

edit quote;

So true, what a stonker the 4200 is as a manual, it brings a different dimension to the experience. They are a rare beast and the joy in driving with 3 pedals far exceeds value for me, then factor in that only 200 odd were made as right hookers (out of 1078 worldwide LHD/RHD) with a stick shift, that is the real cherry on top. If they go up great, if they don't who cares, but it is a great feeling knowing that you're in something special and which represents the last of a breed from Maserati. The swan song stick shift from them, now that is something to celebrate if you have one.

For so many years, undervalued, under-rated and overlooked, really when values took a nose dive, it was a Champagne lifestyle for Prosecco money car, but what a car and what a serious contender and with so much flair. As a car it has so much going for it. Yes there are better, faster and more dynamic cars out there but no one can deny the depth of its brilliance, that V8 is wow and so much soul in both Spyder and Coupe format....I just find it really hard to put a price on that. 177mph! A slouch it ain't. Brilliant and bonkers. Grazie Maserati for making it as a stick!

I must admit it sounded too good to be true as I originally thought there were approx 15 UK face-lift GT's (not including Spyders)!!.............Does anyone know the cost difference (when purchased new) between the CC and the GT, I assume that the CC would have been the more expensive out of the two options!
