I followed a Maser up I-5 for 20-30 miles once. Whoever was driving was experienced and smooth. Drove swiftly and well at some over the limit, handling the traffic well. Not overly aggressive, picked his or her moves well, just both quick and safe.
Their engine is essentially a Ferrari V-8 with 2 cylinders removed.
I especially enjoyed watching the independent rear suspension work. Really, it's a driver's car...but damned expensive to maintain, I'm sure. Plus the label is a bit ostentatious? Driving one would be too much like a gold neck chain & a gold Rolex.
Still, if one was willing to overlook all the shortcomings, a lightly driven 5 year old one might be fun...and for less purchase money than a new Bullitt Mustang.
