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.
£83,935 - £87,545
Just a single letter, but in this case the S stands for an extra half-litre of engine capacity, tauter suspension and, at 183mph tops, the fastest production Maser ever.
£76,875 - £89,405
All-new version of the Italian limo that’s the nearest thing you can get to a four-door Ferrari
