It just so happens that....

A Ferrari Enzo that cost £425,000 has the same badge as my Spider that cost £29,500 new ! How cool is that

Re: It just so happens that....

There are more of these similarities.... Look at the door-handles on the Mondial..... and remember, they were much newer cars than Spiders.

Re: It just so happens that....

Don't go comparing 70's Maserati with Citroens (specifically the SM) of the same era either, they where rummaging in each others parts bins all the time.

sharing within a group is expected, it would be madness not to.

Hi SR... no I didnt !!... when i bought the car in December 2007 the 2nd owner gave me the actual invoice for the car.. 29,500 !.. In August 1997. The extras are :
Electric Hood and Lusso Trim 4600
Metalic Paint 316
Wood Dash Trim 460
CD Player 449 (in compartment behind seats)
Wind Deflector 180
Delivery & RFL 145..

Crazy as the base car was just 22490!

Re: It just so happens that....

I think the Maserati Biturbo used to share headlamp units with the FIAT 127. You could have walked into a Maserati dealer and have been relieved of both eyeballs in return for a headlamp unit, or you could have gone to your local scrappie and given him a fiver...

Well, I think the wood trim kinda breaks the overall black dashboard, handbrake & gearlever areas. Of course this is not necessary on the Phase 2!
