Re: Frankfurt show - Maserati Kubang

The Kubang is hideous. Fullstop. If Masser do it, it will probably make them a fortune just as Bentley believe.

Re: Frankfurt show - Maserati Kubang

autocar bumped it in effect with the rehashing of the original piece this time with the news coming from Detroit confirming production there and perpetuating the myth that Ferrari will design and build the engines in Italy which, except for the top of the range V12, isn't going to happen.

Why did someone have to bump this thread? I'd just about got this abomination out of my mind. If they eventually have the temptation to fit this with a diesel I think I might have to fire-bomb a few dealers.
