I had the TV news on and I found this commercial… if you can make out the text it reads:
“4.2L V8 ENGINE THE DELIVERS 405 HP”
D'oh!! That's quite a typo. As Google points out:
Yes, the voiceover said it correctly “… engine that delivers 405…”
But it was wrong on screen.
The Maserati slogan is “Excellence through Passion.”
Seems like more passion than excellence. And certainly more passion than quality. Makes one question their commitment to kwality? I guess I'm just jealous I can't afford a Maserati.
I emailed Maserati customer service online, asking or a comment and got a form letter response back that includes:
We would like to inform you that it has been our care to forward your message to our competent department.
That makes it sound like they have only one “competent” department?? Maybe part of their marketing and brand image is the use a delightfully broken Italian-English??
