    Yep, a mate who is coming to Le Mans has one and is also looking at the Pista and it does not sound very good.

    I suppose we all find engine noise to be important given we like Maseratis', that's one of the reasons the McLaren 540/570 disappointed me. I'm thinking R8 V10 next (exhaust noise) and n/a power delivery..

    My GTS has such a benign chassis and power delivery that when I drove a QPVI diesel I got it sideways on a slip road with all that twin turbo power delivery wallop, Pirelli tyres, RWD and coldish temps.
    2011 GranTurismo GTS Auto - have got through 45,000 miles so far
    2005 4200GT - went in 2011, a bit busy under braking
    1999 3200GT - went in 2003, still bought it even though it threw a CEL on the test drive
