Featuring a host of improvements, the Maserati Coupé 2004 models (the GT and Cambiocorsa) continue the successful concept of the high performance GT car – a unique combination of performance, roominess for four people and on-board luxury.
The Maserati Coupé brings together all of the most desirable elements of a Grand Tourer. The 4.2-litre V8 normally-aspirated engine, which it shares with the Spyder, provides great performance with a top speed of 177 mph (285 km/h) and a 0-to-62 mph (0-to-100 km/h) acceleration time of just 4.9 seconds.
The sporting characteristics and driving versatility of the car have been further optimised with the introduction of new management software for the electronic transmission model known as Cambiocorsa (Italian for racing gearbox). In addition, the six-speed manual transmission version, which is badged GT, benefits from an improved gearchange quality.
"It was the 3200 GT that began the rejuvenation of the Maserati brand both worldwide and here in the UK," said Philip Mills, Operations Director of Maranello Concessionaires Limited, distributor of Maserati in the UK, "The new 2004 thoroughbred Coupés, with their technological, sporting, performance and comfort improvements, will continue that success story".
"The new range of colours and trims combined with the unique Skyhook suspension, heated seats, Navtrak security system and a competitive price – from £56,650 – all means that the exclusive experience of owning a new Maserati now has even greater allure," concludes Mills.
The Maserati Coupé 2004 is a product of the high technology and manufacturing processes centred in the famous Viale Ciro Menotti plant in Modena, Italy, which has been completely transformed to become the world’s most advanced manufacturing facility for low volume production of vehicles.
