If you're looking for a Maserati that's easier on your wallet, or a treat for a Maserati lover, then you should check out the Maserati model configurator. Three base models in 1/43 scale are available: Quattroporte, Quattroporte S, and Granturismo S. From there you can choose from among seven exterior and two interior colors, four or five different brake caliper colors, two or three different kinds of rims, and select a sunroof which is made of glass. No, it doesn't open.

You can even select a personalized license plate written in one of four fonts. Naturally, once you're finished, you can buy it. The models are €230 ($320 US), which includes shipping, and are sent within 30 days. If your Maserati doesn't match your expectations, you can return it (good luck doing that with a real car). If you don't want to go all the way then you can just display your modeling prowess in the virtual showroom. Everybody wins.

      awesome idea, more car makers need to allow fans to do this sort of thing

      cool idea, especially with the personalized plate.. but.. 320 bucks is just way too much for basically a little car which is smaller than my computer mouse! Might as well buy 300 hotwheels cars lol

      I'm sorry, but $320 is more than what BBR goes for on ebay.

      They will sell less of these models than cars.

      I can purchase a Maisto 1/43 model for $5.00, or a Maisto 1/18 model for $12.00, and the end product will be just as good, if not better. $320 for a toy car? No.

      And people wonder why I collect 1:18 scale diecasts. $320 is a lot of dough for a model that doesn't open.
