In the 1940's George Orwell wrote his famous book 1984. Nowadays we have the situation as he wrote in his book. But the Maserati Cor drove today was from 1984, when the world was still okay. With this Maserati Cor is tracing the roots of Switzerland. He drives with the Maserati over the famous Axenstrasse and meets in the end William Tell in Altdorf the capital of Canton Uri.
In this Episode Cor drives a very rare red Italian car. It was a rainy day in Central Switzerland, not the best day to test drive such an old sports car. But this Mini-Miura as it was nicknamed drove excellent. Based on a Fiat 125, the Samantha Vignale has a solid technical base.
I've always fancied the Triumph Spitfire. But I always thought, that this car was rubbish. That is why I never bought one. Because people talk about the poor build quality and the poor electronics. Imust say, that the under 100 PS was the main cause not buy one. So in this episode I wanted to find out, how it is to drive. And I positively suprised. 72 PS is enough for a light sports car as long as it is a cool car like a Triumph Spitfire!
