Maybe it's just me, but the very idea of a Maserati with all those doors bothers me. And yes, I do know they've done this before.

The thing is they also did this, what I believe to be THE most beautiful automobile of all time:

I dont know, S55 will eat a Maser alive, but still maser has a very good looking body.

Let me put it this way: who would you rather date, Helga from Stuttgart or Francesca from Milan?

It depends on if your looking for speed, or looks.... both cars are extremely fast sedans, both are very very expensive to maintain (mas probably even more expensive since mas is basically Ferrari) but an S55 still looks like every other W220... The Mas is much more exotic and will stand out in a crowd, not to mention turn heads from both car guys and little old ladies. Either way, they are both awesome! I just wish there was an affordable W140 super-sedan

You could always chuck the motor from a S55 into a W140 but then it's not really affordable is it
