Hello! 2 years later and this film IS STILL missing!
This film is unavailable. Please rectify.
Please re-upload this exciting-sounding video, it’s unavailable.
What’s the music track. Awesome film.
I often wondered why driving makes so much sense to me while others describe it as an “A to B”experience. Maybe it’s because everything fitted with a cat. has zero feedback and leaves the driver numb and along for the ride.
While that might have one thing to do with it, I think it’s more of a personal trait than anything else. I’ve barely driven cars without cat, but I still enjoy drivig.
This is the reason I check this page out at least once a day, as my daily routine. Epic cars and epic productions. What more can a car enthusiast wish for? Except for having one sample of every car featured, obviously.
At first I thought “there better be some talking in this video,” but then halfway through, I thought “actually, there better not be ANY talking in this video…”
sharp contrast to the top gear challenge a few years ago when the lads got hold of a merak, urraco and 308gt4
A great close up of a somewhat forgotten classic Italian motor, not sure about the car rocking on the drive, a bit cringe. What cameras did you use for the shoot?
Canon 5D MKII, Canon 60D, and a GoPro for two shots. 😉
Videos like this are the reason I keep coming back to this site.
The emotion and pure excitement of the car is portrayed perfectly!
Apparently the attachments did not make it
I had the good fortune to own two (2) Maserati Ghilby at the same time ! This was the predecessor of the Bora also with the DOHC setup and with four double Webers ! It took some tweaking to have them all sing the same tune, but when they did MUSIC ! They had a huge ZF 5 speed which was a bear to shift when cold. The brake booster lived in the fenderwell protected by a mere sheet. The result was that it froze sometimes, try stopping a two ton car with four discs and no brake booster, hair raising was the word sometimes. I then bought a Bora which was much more modern technoligically speaking, still boasting basically the same engine. Servicing was fun with this cerntrally mounted engine and the Italian creative style. I once popped a belt, both seats had to come out, the separating wall AND two of the waterhoses as they went through the belts. The AC compressor was mounted in front of the engine facing backwards and thus also running backwards. The opening for the oil filter was so tight that it needed a special cartridge with a hex welded to the top. The roof of the car was polished stainless steel showing everybody fingerprints and so on. But all in all, it was a blast to drive with about the best pre-ABS brakes i ever experienced, a result of the collaboration between Citroen and Maserati. The seats were not adjustable but the whole combination dashboard, steeringwheel and pedals move hydraulically back and forth.
I never experienced a Merak though
Who leaves their Maserati out in the driveway like that? Has this guy got something even nicer in the garage?
Awesome! I was familiar with the Maserati Bora, but holy cow! The Merak is super cool.
