Are you currently looking on the auto market for a luxury vehicle that will impress? If not, have you ever considered buying a used high-end vehicle? Looking rich for cheap may be possible with the availability of older luxury vehicles. An example of an older vehicle within a reasonable price range is the 2005 Maserati Quattroporte.
The 2005 Maserati Quattroporte is 12 years old at this point. Although, that doesn’t make the prestige of the Maserati brand completely undesirable. On today’s market in 2017, the 2005 Maserati Quattroporte is for sale used for between $20,000 to $25,000. This price is a major discount compared to its original MSRP of $106,000 before options in 2005. There are many positive and negative aspects to consider if you’re considering purchasing this vehicle.
First, the 2005 Maserati Quattroporte withholds a 4.2-liter V8 engine producing 394 horsepower and 333 lb.-ft. of torque. Of course, that V8 comes with the luscious Maserati exhaust notes. The downside of the V8 is that it averages 12 mpg in the city and 15 mpg on the highway. That makes the 2005 Maserati Quattroporte define the true meaning of a gas guzzler. At 4,375 pounds, or 2.2 tons, the Quattroporte is quite a heavy vehicle, which is probably part of the gas guzzling problem. Also, keep in mind that a vehicle this old will not have a warranty, so anything that happens is on you.
Second, the 2005 Maserati Quattroporte has positive and negative reviews. On a positive note, Kelly Blue Book rates the vehicle at a 9.5/10. On the other hand, some people relay negative comments. Some of the negative reviews include the design not aging well, it being unreliable, and a terrible transmission. There’s also the dreadful sound of the car beeping internally while in reverse. And, the Manual/Automatic button on the dashboard to activate the paddle shifters. On the other side, the car is still a Maserati and prominently states so.
Overall, the 2005 Maserati Quattroporte is a vehicle that makes looking rich for cheap a possibility. In 2005, this car was worth over $100,000 which symbolizes wealth. Today, the car may be worth $80,000 less but it still displays its prestige proudly. In the end, it is truly up to the buyer if the 2005 Maserati Quattroporte is a worth investment.

I Are you a fan of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V video game? Have you ever wondered what a Grand Theft Auto V Garage would look like in real life?
Who wouldn’t want to walk through one of the beautiful 10-car garage showrooms found in the game? Most upscale properties across Los Santos showcase the 10-car garage. This provides the owners with a private showroom for the vehicles stored inside.
Los Santos is based on modern day Los Angeles for those who aren’t familiar with the game.
Thanks to effspot, a well-known automotive YouTuber, we have the opportunity to see what a GTA V garage would look like in real life.
His video starts out with a cruise in the stunning Jaguar F-Type SVR. That alone is enough to excite most people, but then the vehicle speeds over to the garage. Once there, you can see the sheer awesomeness of this man’s set-up.
The garage may not be shaped exactly as it is in the video game but it’s the closest I’ve seen yet. I’m still waiting to see a garage built specifically like the video game’s design.
Upon entering the garage, you see a stunning collection of automobiles.
This garage houses treasures that any auto enthusiast would love to own. Initial estimates value this car collection worth millions of dollars.
After leaving the garage, the video continues to a shop where they spot a beautiful, carbon fiber Koenigseggseggsegg… the Koenigsegg CCX.
If you look closely, you can spot other vehicles in the garage, including a few Lamborghinis.
Overall, Manny’s garage is like visiting a Grand Theft Auto V garage in real life. From the design of the garage itself to the fleet of vehicles within, this is a true auto enthusiast’s dream. Although owning a collection like this in real life is only a dream for many, we can all live out our fantasies inside the game.
