Quintessential Italian sports tourer legend is another in the line of flawed but evocative names that has survived generations of crap quality and bizarre handling to emerge as the coolest name in Fiat's vast stable. More upmarket than Alfa, less flash than Ferrari. And maker of Luca di Montezemolo's daily limo.
Achingly pretty GT in the grand tradition (except it's not built of tin foil and won't burst into flames spontaneously). Seats four, gorgeous cabin, handles like a charm.
Just a single letter, but in this case the S stands for an extra half-litre of engine capacity, tauter suspension and, at 295km/h tops, the fastest production Maser ever.
$281,500 - $322,850
Sounds better when you say it in Italian, but the English translation - 'four-door' - is more helpful in explaining it. Basically a big, cool, Ferrari-powered sedan. Respect.
