Maserati S.p.A. (Italian: [mazeˈraːti]) is an Italian luxury vehicle manufacturer. Established on 1 December 1914, in Bologna, Italy, the company's headquarters are now in Modena, and its emblem is a trident. The company has been owned by Stellantis since 2021. Maserati was initially associated with Ferrari. In May 2014, due to ambitious plans and product launches, Maserati sold a record of over 3,000 cars in one month. This caused them to increase production of the Quattroporte and Ghibli models. In addition to the Ghibli and Quattroporte, Maserati offers the Maserati GranTurismo and the Maserati Levante (the first ever Maserati SUV).Maserati has placed a yearly production output cap at 75,000 vehicles globally.
Again we have a nice straight model made from die-cast metal with some plastic parts. The paintwork, this very nice blue is one of the points that stand out in this model. With absolutely no pain flaws anywhere on the model. All open panels of this model open wide with a good gap between the different panels. The lights both front & back fit flus with the body as well as all decals nicely placed. Small items like rear vision mirrors as well as all windows are fitted again very well. Those tyres as well as the mag wheels are well suited and give a good overall look to the model.
Interior with those deep brown seats, even though plastic still gives that impression of leather. This is an example of good diemaking and quality manufacturing. The necessary parts like gears, hand brakes and all the controls on the steering wheel have been done to the scale that one always expects. The dashboard is well laid out with the instrumentation very readable. Interior door panels show door controls and armrests that are extended from the panel just as the real vehicle.
Our engine is quite an impressive one in that there is quite a bit of detail. Done in a more softer colour of metal grey and they have not resorted to using chrome that would not fit in the overall colour scheme. As I said detail is very nice and displaying it with the bonnet up, you would feel comfortable in displaying it.
So overall, this is an interesting model and having good italian designs such as the Masratt is a good mix with other Italian vehicles that show beautiful cars that show very distinctive designs that are unique. I love that colour combination of the blue with the brown upholstery a good combination. Overall this is a collectable model and will fit well in most collections. I give this a 4.75/5.0.
