Ever heard of a chap called Giorgetto Giugiaro? Well he is reckoned to be the most successful car designer of all time. Take a short stroll down any street in the country and you are likely to find an example of his automotive handywork.

The talented chap will probably want to be remembered for his finer pieces of work which happens to include the original (and best) Golf, the Alfasud (not the rusty bits), the 156, the sharp-looking Lotus Esprit (as driven by Bond underwater), the Ford Mustang (1965) plus odd jobs for Fiat, Ferrari, Audi, Toyota, Ducati, Bugatti, BMW, Lancia, Lamborghini, SAAB, Renault, the list goes on and on. Oh and in between his car doodling he managed to squeeze in a number of camera bodies for Nikon and a keyboard for Bontempi.

The bits he would rather everybody forget include the FSO Polonez, Yugo Zastava, Hyundai Pony and Daewoo Matiz. Well at least he got paid for those pups!

Near the top of his finer creations comes the Maserati Coupe introduced in 2002. Such a dramatic looking car with classic Grand Tourer lines that take you back to the sixties and those films with glamorous film stars driving along those twisty roads around Monaco.

What a lovely sound this car makes too. It is the sound of a proper V8 that snarls and growls like the MGM lion. With 390 bhp the Italian stallion will sprint to 60mph in less than 5 seconds and if you make a quick detour to Germany you will max out at around 180 on the autbahns.

If you fancy a well-cared for example to make the trip we have been asked by the owner a 2005 Nero Carbonio (Carbon Black) manual Coupe to find a good home for his pride and joy. The car has been fully serviced and comes with a full leather interior and SatNav.
