Ask yourself what would pass the valet test - if a Maserati and an Austin Yellow M3 show up at a high end restaurant or ultra luxury hotel and they can only park one car in front, which would they put on display? It's the Maserati every time.
Do we know that it sounds more exotic? It's also a turbo 6-cyl engine in the Ghibli...
