I Bought Tavarish's Maserati From CAR TREK... Huge Mistake!

I bought @Tavarish 's Maserati Coupe GT from season 2 of Car Trek!
Come along as I take a look and drive my "new" car... A 2003 Maserati Coupe GT. This car started life as an entry level exotic car... Then it got driven a lot... Then someone removed the interior.... Then Tavarish made it a race car.... and now the whole world knows it the car from Car Trek! Yes, the same Maserati Trofeo "tribute car" that Ed Bolian made endless fun of during filming.
At the end of Car Trek S2, the appraiser made Tavarish an offer to buy this car for $5,000, but after driving the car for 5 minutes... He immediately realized his mistake. Shortly after that, @Hoovies Garage brokered a deal for me to make the same mistake, except I didn't know what I was getting into, because the show hadn't aired yet, and I was buying the car sight unseen.... For $5,000 what could go wrong?!
I am beyond excited to own this car, and I hope you all enjoy seeing it on the channel.
Thanks for watching!

Certainly this is the cheapest Maserati Coupe in the USA
Possibly the cheapest Maserati in the world!

  • Make sure that she isn't your only car because she's never going to be reliable, or respectable. Don't ever take anybody whose opinion is important for your future for a ride with her. Drive that car like she's a Italian porn star and the two of you will always be happy.

  • It can't be a great stock car, it never was one. Strip it, clean it, cage it, hot rod it, throw away anything that doesn't make it go fast, replace the back seat with subs in a carbon enclosure, paint it the most garish neon that you can stand, and never forget that it's a cheap beater super car for one reason only; so you can drive the hell out of it. That car exists to drive hard and fast.

  • The clutch replacement will cost you at least $5k. I have a Maserati spyder 02. I had my interior redone in Vegas

    • Yikes. Not looking forward to that kind of a replacement cost. I was thinking it would be slightly less because mine is a traditional manual.

  • Maserati? More like Messerati which is what i was thinking when i was watching Car Trek. I would say at this point if you havent already decided what to do with it your best bet wouldnt be to restore it as it would cost more than twice its value and no guarantee you can replace all of the interior to it. Just make it a stripped down racer and drive it till it blows. But hey thats just me

  • Nobody with a brain is going to tell you to try and put it back to stock. It's entire appeal is it's racey look. I suggest you find someone who does interior work like Richard Rawlins of Gas Monkey did with Sue from ASM auto Upolstery, and have them fix the interior, and then get the clutch replaced. Since you only put 5k into it, you have a lot of wiggle room to fix it.

  • the clutch is a must for sure but the rest is a crap shoot... the interior could be less expensive than you may think to restore if done be a custom car shop instead of the so called "Authorized" Maserati repair shop your local tuner interior guy can do a great job and be over the moon to be working on an exotic car like that. the missing parts are another problem altogether. and finding those without breaking the bank will be next to impossible but fabrication has its uses and you may be able to make those from scratch (maybe the only option for most of them) if you can find good enough pictures of them to replicate them accurately but the worn and sticky buttons and switches are something else to deal with. for those perhaps a good cleaning and a thin coating of clear 2 part hard setting acrylic resin will be the ticket. there are so many ways to go about it weather a full restoration or just a mod to taste. or even some combination of those.. but the choice is ultimately yours.

  • I own a 2011 QP 4.7 S my self, I also installed a complete and louder exhaust system that makes me smile all the time I floor it, please make it a tidy track car since the interior is already gone, make it like a european track-day car or a 2 seater club racing car with striped racing interior with co-pilot rally computers, I´m really excited to see if you can make it a really good track-day or tarmac rally car, with good handling by improving suspension, brakes, body stiffness (roll-cage) and a weight saving program.

  • Hey there. I tried scolling through the comments. Some people have complained about the audio. But I didn't see anyone offer tips, or address the both easiest fix and most annoying thing. Here are some tips :) You need to put a High Pass Filter on all audio recorded in a car. There's so much sub low stuff in this it makes my house shake, around 7:40 is a good example. Play that through a decent system, loud enough to hear you talk, and you'll feel what I'm on about. If you don't have access to powerful system that goes low, take my word for it and put a steep HPF at around 60Hz or so. Your mic is fine. Just your mix that needs a bit of work. Some compression on both the mic track and master bus would go a long way. And if you want background music, that is audible (even loud), but you can still "talk through", figure out how to make "audio ducking" work in whatever you're using. Says he who has 63 subscribers to someone who has 17k... anyway, don't even know what compelled me. Maybe it's a pet peeve of mine that so many car youtubers miss and is so easily fixed. The HPF that is, the other stuff, that's a bit more fiddly :) The footage is great, and good luck!

  • Don't even try to restore the interior. Just gut it and put in what you like. For sure, yu need to get the electronics sorted. Replace the clutch. go over every gasket and connection to make absolutely sure that nothing leaks. Missing stuff like that is how fires happen. It's pretty clear that you're going to need to sort out the wheels and suspension too. Nothing should rub like that. Having spent all your money, I would still hate to see this car parted out.

  • I would make it as close to a race car as possible. It is pointless to try and restore the interior completely as it is too far gone, so it should be removed and replaced with race seats and a simple dashboard with all the gauges and switches you need. A roll cage would be a nice addition, too. Maybe you can even sell the better parts and get some money back. Then get wheels that actually fit, maybe some coilovers to boot. Fix what needs fixing, like the clutch.

  • Go full on race with it. Get some forged magnesium wheels and bigger brakes. Get rid of that shifter and get one that exposes the gates and has a nice billet handle. As for seats, go all out sports, maybe Sparco to keep it Italian. It’s an awesome car, and for the love of that motor alone is worth keeping. You’ll be able to say you have one of the last great Italian sports tourers created by Maserati; the stuff they’re making now is just so unenthusiastic.

  • Well I would say make it stock and beautiful again, BUT considering the cost and amount of work needed Im not so sure. Perhaps make it a road going stripped out race car. Remove as much of the interior as you can, carpets head liner all of it and clean it all up so it looks like a brand new dtm touring car on the inside. Fix the mechanics and get a proper rap and wing that actually fits the style of the car and has some proper aero going. This route may be the cheapest and still be bad ass.
