The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Maserati GranTurismo carves out a grand-touring niche for itself with Italian cachet, an earthy Ferrari rumble, and a serene blend of ride and handling. A marriage of the best of German handling and Italian power, the 2012 Audi R8 is a fantastic all-around supercar.
