    It might be typical Italian incestuousness with parts. You can find fiat parts in your Ferrari. The 458 replacement is the 488 Ferrari reported to have twin turbo 6.

    Didn't the 8C have a Ferrari sourced V8? I saw an 8C in LA a couple of years ago and it sounded glorious.

    Both the 8C and the Maserati GranTurismo and Quattroporte (previous generation) use the Ferrari motor but without the flat plane crank and some other differences, yes.

    My neighbor has the Maseratti GT Cab with the V8 and it sounds glorious too. We were talking about me driving it in the near future. Did I mention it sounds glorious?
