it's got ~125k now, that's all.

I've driven 2 3200's in the last couple of weeks... i love 'em. i'd even say i like them more than 4200... the turbos are fun, and a manual gearbox is so much nicer than SMG clunkomatic.

Oh, and there are PLENTY of 3200's getting around with more than 125k km... even though they may not know it!

Those pommie buggers and their exports... you gotta watch out!

I drove a 3200 years ago and it was a heap of shit IMHO. I can understand why the Modern Maserati reputation for unreliability started with it.

It wasn't the 3200 that buggered the reputation, it was the V6 twin turbos, oh and the 70's V8 like Indy/Ghibli/Bora etc...

the 3200 definitely has a few little issues, but they're a lot better than many realise.

If they had a proper 3 seat rear seat, i'd definitely have one for myself.

I have a very sexy looking Black one in at the moment, it's stunning, the boomerang lamps with black just works ;)

Phil you reckon 3200GT good enough to make a switch from datsun?

pretty sure i saw one in the bmw kingsway outside lot

lol @ the 3200, the modern day ferrari 412

the smg is very good for a semi manual box. A much better attempt than Ferrari's efforts at the time, and Aston's efforts today

however in these days of dual clutch box's it does feel outdated in terms of shift speed

It is the intake sound that makes it soooo addictive. Everytime you try to enjoy it you are already half in jail :-(.
