Maserati GranTurismo S

maser-gt-img02Nice review of the GT S on classic driver:

The standard Maserati GranTurismo is an impressive car. Most testers, however, commented that with a little more power and even better brakes it would – for the money – take all before it. Having spent a long weekend away in the GranTurismo S, I would wholeheartedly agree.

The Modenese company has just launched a fully automatic version of the ‘S’, but the black car you see here is equipped with the ‘paddle’, electro-hydraulically actuated, six-speed gearbox that will be familiar to anyone with recent Ferrari/Maserati/Alfa Romeo 8C experience.

Revenge of the Sushi!

Fish pedicures pop up in Illinois — and clients are biting: Unlike many fish, the Garra rufa is unafraid of humans. In fact, these pinkie-size fish like you. They like you very much. Which is key to why they’re turning up in salons in Virginia, Ohio and now, Aurora and Gurnee. People are paying $25-$50…Read More
