I’ve been driving past Mercedes Benz of Buffalo about once per week lately because it’s been interesting. Two weeks ago they had a orange Lotus Exige and a dark red Aston Martin
V8 Vantage. (The Lotus was stickered at $65k and had 1500 miles on the odometer, in case this is significant to anyone). Last week they had a yellow Ferrari F430 coupe (not the sedan or wagon, lol). I actually got to hear it run as the lot worker struggled to back it up a slight ramp from the parking lot into the showroom… this took several attempts because it had paddle shifters. I understand that driving one of these cars in reverse in a controlled fashion is no small feat.
Anyways, back on topic. So, this week they have a black Maserati Gran Turismo. I would consider this very rare, because even though Ferraris are more well known by the average person and some are more expensive, I think this is the first Maserati I have ever seen. Strangely, a few days later I went back to take some better pictures and I saw a white one waiting at a traffic light at the intersection near the dealership. So there are two that I have seen, ever; not counting on BBC’s Top Gear television series or the XBox 360 racing games Forza Motorsport, Need for Speed and Project Gotham Racing.
It looks amazing, and I imagine that it sounds equally as good. But most imporantly, it’s rare and exotic, and that’s all that most people probably care about ;D
