Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 15 - 15 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Clearly an Italian sports car with a huge V8 engine and near supercar performance isn't going to be cheap to run. But even in the context of its peers, the Spyder has expensive tastes. In addition to coming to terms with the horrific 15.2mpg thirst, 430g/km emissions and group 20 insurance you must factor in the need for a minor service every 6250 miles and a major one at 12500 miles.

At main dealer rates that's going to hurt but fortunately there are independent Maserati specialists who know the cars inside out and can carry work out at significantly less cost.

Spyder has an average of 435 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, which are high although only marginally high for a car delivering this kind of performance. The range is very thirsty, averaging 15 mpg.

The Spyder appears to be well constructed but it was designed and built in an era when Maserati wasn't known for its attention to quality and you can expect to have more trouble than you might with a more mass produced alternative. Maserati's current cars are much improved in this area.
