“Elegant yet athletic” is how it was described in EVO magazine when it came out, “Subtle yet imposing”, John Barker went on to say. The GT S is certainly an improvement on the GT; improved suspension is the biggest change, altering both ride and comfort. Bigger tyres and other visual styling cues complete the picture. Finally, braking now takes the form of new Brembo front brakes with six-piston calipers with these new modifications making city work simple and long journeys something worth looking forward to.
With just two recorded owners, this extremely well presented example has clearly been cherished over the last 11 years. The service history, importantly for a Maserati, is good and regular. The pre-delivery inspection took place at Dick Lovett, Swindon, as well as all subsequent servicing, every year until 2012 and, most recently, at Maranello, Egham, in September, 2018. With metallic Blu Malago paintwork and contrasting tan leather interior, both in excellent condition, the list of optional extras specified runs into many thousands of pounds. From an electric sunroof, seven-spoke alloy wheels, red brake calipers and parking sensors externally to a front tv, nav/track system, heated seats all round and sports steering wheel and handbrake internally. Complete with Maserati book pack as well as associated invoices, servicing documents and both keys, this is incredible value for such a magnificent car.
