Perhaps Motor Trend said it best during their road test… “And as the Maser enters high in the rev counter, its sound is expanded as if plugged into an amplifier set to 11 — a deep and sinister concoction of exotica and Motown permeating all. It’s this sound you remember long after you’ve turned the car off and flown home.”
