About an hour ago a blue 2009 Maserati Quattroporte S pulled up to me at a red light. The guy rolled down the window, and I told him "nice car", and he said "your's too". When the light turned green we both gunned it until I had to exit, which was only about an 1/6th of a mile. Although he obviously had a faster car I was surprised at how small a gap there was between the two of us. I am sure if there was a longer stretch of road the distance would have gotten much greater. The Maserati sounded AMAZING at full throttle, especially for a sedan.
