    Look What I Got to Drive

    One of my cousins just picked up a new Maserati MC20 from the dealer this past Saturday.
    We loaded into an enclosed trailer and I drove it from So Cal to Wyoming to deliver it to his ranch.
    It was a nerve wracking drive for 1200 miles with my cousin's dream car in the trailer.
    His F350 towed the trailer well and it really wasn't an issue with the tow vehicle and trailer but we had to go through areas with 6* weather and I was worried about ice on the road along the way.
    And about an hour from ou destination, it got really windy and that trailer was getting blown all over the road.

    Weather has been very nice up here in WY and we took it out today to go into town and grab a bite to eat.
    My cousin let me drive it back to his ranch since he wanted to have a cocktail and didn't want to drive after since the car attracts a whole lot of attention.

    This is when we loaded into the trailer.

        All I can say about driving this car is, holy shit what an experience.
        We never put it into Corsa mode because it's not broken in yet but even in GT mode the thing is an absolute beast.
        I think it's 0 to 100 in 4.3 seconds.

            I agree. More of a timeless look.

              Bet that was WILD!

              How well mannered is it? If you had to do a road trip in it, or daily it for a week. Would that be pleasant?

                The car has instant throttle response and incredibly precise steering but it was so well mannered you could drive it anywhere, provided you didn't need a whole lot of cargo space.
                It is the only supercar that I've ever driven but I've read that most are not very well mannered.

                The car is so comfortable and laid out perfectly that you could easily spend hours in the driver's seat.

                      Wow that's quite a machine. I forgot those even existed.

                      I've heard most supercars of the last decade are fairly well-mannered. Insane performance is so much more attainable that driveability and liveability make the difference now.

                      Of course, there are plenty of exceptions. Especially the boutique stuff.
