Maserati has made a host of revisions to its Coupe and Spyder models for the 2004 model year.

Both models now benefit from the Maserati Stability Programme (MSP) fitted as standard, while the Skyhook suspension system has received new calibration.  Standard equipment also now includes the Navtrak security system, heated seats and metallic paint.

Driving enjoyment is said to be much improved, with the fitment of more direct steering and new tyres with improved lateral grip.  The Cambiocorsa gearbox has receives new software, while the manual transmission has an improved gear-change action.

A new ‘Vintage’ personalisation package, which includes chromed door handles, chromed vents in front wing, ball-polished 7-spoke alloy wheels, brake calipers in aluminium colour, and a chromed front grille with red accents on trident, is also available on both models.

Both Coupe and Spyder are powered by the same 4.2-litre 390bhp V8 engine, with the 0-60mph dash dispensed in 4.9 seconds.  Top speed is 177mph for the Coupe, with the Spyder just 1mph slower.

Coupe prices start at £56,650 for the GT, with the Cambiocorsa priced at £58,995.  The Spyder GT is £61,995, with the Cambiocorsa-gearboxed version at £64,995.

New owners looking to improve their driving skills can enjoy a one or two-day Master GT Maserati driving course at the Varano de’ Melegari race track (near Parma, Italy).
