Default My Daily Drive

I think most of you don’t drive your Lambo as a daily drive, neither do I. Last year I replaced my 750 with a 2012 XJL for my daily drive and although it is a very nice car with lots of creature comfort and decent horse power, the newness wore off quickly and I was not that excited about it.

So I started looking to replace my daily drive. I looked at M6, DB9 and a few others. While I was at Straight-line Auto looking, I saw a few Maserati GranTurismos. I ended up buying a low mileage GT with remaining factory warranty. I absolutely love the car. The exhaust notes, handling and style are fantastic. Lots of value for the money! The back seats are actually usable and you can put 2 people back there. Customer service is fantastic at the Boardwalk Ferrari/Maserati dealership, they actually pick up the car and drop it off if it needs warranty work. I wish I could say the same about the Lambo dealership.

I have had the car for 2 months now and I am more excited about it now than when I just bought it. Last Sunday, it was nice and sunny, I couldn't decide if I should take the Gallardo or the GT for a spin. Well GT won.

Not sure why I didn't considered Maserati in the past, so I thought I share my experience for those of you who are looking to replace your daily drive.

Your Gran Turismo is beautiful. Very cool combo, GT for daily and the G for fun.

Enjoy... My wife has one she uses as her DD also. We have had it for about 2 years now. It's been a good car.
