The car for sale industry is growing amazingly and the new launching is seen quite frequently and regularly. One or other manufacture produces the latest model that can compete in the market with other manufacturers and also can make the company profitable. But, none of the companies can reach to the hearts and minds of the car lovers until the reviews or features of them are not reached to the ultimate buyers. In order to make this possible, the manufacturers and dealers offer the services of expert car review writers who make the buying procedure quite easier and smarter by offering the reviews in the markets.

These reviews are available in different sections and styles but there are certain fixed points that are must to get handled and focused. Here are some of the highlighted features that make big difference in the decision of buying.

* The introduction

The introductory features are quite necessary in deciding the buying. In the standard review, the introductory paragraph is quite important as it indicates brief information about the company and also reveals the response and trims offered by the new car manufacturers. These introductory features make the buyer informed about the car and their models, experience of the test drive and the summary of the company which connects as the first impression with the reviewed model. The first impression is last impression, and therefore the introductory paragraph is must to get read by the readers.

* The exterior and interior

The exterior is one of the most featured factors of any of the new cars. Normally people buy the car more for the show-off reasons these days and also the better exterior creates a definite impression in the minds of the viewers. Exterior has got varied shapes, features and latest tools that are described while narrating the exteriors. The headlights, fog lamps, the grille and also the exterior paints are the main features that make difference in the exterior view. Interior is also one of the prime features for reviewing the buying procedures. In the interior section, the advance tools, the locations and ease of using these features and also the comfort space for the front and rear seats should be seen with multiple features and functions. Ultimately, the exterior and the interiors should be seen with amazing and exclusive perfections.

* The engine performance and driving comfort

The engine performance is quite important and pivotal is the driving comfort of the cars. The articles should be read by keeping the importance of engines in the minds. The engines are having phenomenal importance and they also are the hearts of any models. The more efficient the engine is the longer lasting the cars are. The horse power productions and the torque should be seen with the engine types. The engines should suit the types, for example, the sports and other models are attached with the V8 engines that are fastest. So, the model type and their engine types should be seen before making any final decision.

* The safety features

The safety features are equally important as the airbags and other special features make big difference in improving the safety features. The new cars are clearly exposing the safety features and they are quite important in making the decision of buying.

So, these are some of the most important features of the new car reviews that can make the car buying easier and smarter. They should be seen with the target of seeing these targeted features.

The Maserati Merak

There have been successful reinvention of cars that went down in the past few years. A good example is the BMW’s Mini Cooper, Volkswagen’s New Beetle and Fiat’s 500. There are thousands of car models that have been created while at the same time there are many opportunities to build more. However, because of the originality, obscurity or emotional attachments, some cars deserve to be recreated. I have always loved the Maserati Merak, and I think its remaking would be a great idea.

The Maserati Merak is sports vehicle that was made by Italian company Maserati that was established on December 1, 1914, in Bologna. Heading to the end of 1960’s, Citroen, which by then was the majority shareholder of Maserati came up with an idea. It was decided that for ‘Casa del Tridente’ to introduce a mid-engined GT. They had planned on two models. One was a luxury model in the traditional mode. The other one was a cheaper version that was meant to run against the likes of Ferrari 308/GT4 and the Lamborghini Urraco. They went ahead and launched the Maserati Bora in the year 1971

In the following year, 1972, Maserati came up with what would be known as ‘Junior,’ the Maserati Merak. The Maserati Merak is sports vehicle that is mid-engined and was in production between the years 1972 and 1983. Yes, it was not named after the wind as previous versions but after a star from the constellation Ursa Major. It had a small engine and a marginally different appearance in the exterior. In other aspects, the Maserati Merak was similar to the popular Maserati Bora.

However, apart from the normal shape and proportions of the Bora, it had a fastback shape. It was also cut vertically right behind the seats. Flying buttresses above the rear boot lid maintained a continuous silhouette. This innovative masterpiece was the work of Giotto Giugiaro.

Models

1. Merak

The Merak which was designed Tipo 122 by the factory, was officially introduced to the world at the Paris motor show in October 1972.

2. Merak SS

The more powerful and light Merak SS was introduced at the Geneva motor show in March 1875.

3. Merak 2000 GT

Lastly, the Merak 2000 GT was first seen at the Turin motor show in November 1976.

The Maserati Merak is closely related to the Maserati Bora in that they share the parts of their structure and body panels. However, it was powered by a 3.0 L V6 in the place of the latter’s 4.7 L V8. The bigger cabin space was gained by fitting a smaller and compressed power train was used to carve out an extra row of car seats. This was very much suitable for children and not so big adults. This made the Merak not just less expensive alternative to the Maserati Bora but also a 4-seater and aimed at a larger market.

The interior of a Maserati is spacious with enough leg space and head room. The car could hold up to three or four people at a time. It should, however, be kept in mind that the back seats are distinctively smaller unlike most cars. The extra space was squuezed out only by opting for a lesser engine than the Maserati Bora. It also has good user-friendly aspcets like, automatically operated windows and height adjustable seats for the driver. The music system was also installed in some of the Meraks. In addition to this, it had a great air conditioner.

In its recorded production run that spun from 1972 to 1983, 1830 Merak’s were built. 1000 of which were Merak SSs and only 200 were 2000 GTs. The most successful year was 1973.

The (Catalogue Raisonne, 1990) indicates that 17 Merak’s were built in 1972, 430 in 1973, 334 in 1974, 102 in 1975, 139 in 1976, 142 in 1977, 153 in 1978, 194 in 1979, 150 in 1980, 101 in 1981 and only 4 in 1982.

The Merak like the Bora was affected greatly at first from the fall out of the energy crisis. In addition to this, managerial difficulties in Maserati also contributed greatly. At that time, the Casa del Tridente was making the hard transition from the old owners Citroen to the new owner who was Alejandro De Tomaso.

I would pretty much like to have the Maserati Merak back because it was a unique car.
