Brace yourself. The Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic is now available with a tremendous Sport Pack. This further enhances this mighty machine's impressive credentials. This £3,840 optional extra includes: body-coloured skirts, mesh side grills, front winglets, black-look headlights, the super-stylish front grill, an integrated rear boot lid spoiler, and striking oval exhaust pipes. It even has more menacing alloy wheels and the highly desirable Maserati Trident logo. It now looks similar to my neighbours Austin Metro.

These bits and pieces clearly enhance the car's looks, but does the upgraded Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic have any mechanical enhancements? Well, the Sport Pack includes modified computer software and a revised exhaust system. These, 'in sport mode', keep the bypass valves fully open to provide an 'even richer sound'. This complements the 4.7-litre 440hp V8 engine that propels this beast to 62mph in only five seconds. Top speed is a teeth shattering 186mph, and the engine has 490Nm of torque.

The Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic, with its highly desirably optional Sport Pack, costs a bank-busting £92,480. Alternatively, this monstrous pile of cold hard cash could purchase four shining examples of the entry-level BMW 3 Series. Still too flash? Perhaps five examples of the Ford Focus would suit better – or thirteen Nissan Pixos. For the price of the Maserati you could even buy a small house. Head vs. heart – but you only live once.
