With the government desperate to get rid of the unsold Maseratis that have been sat in storage for several years, Pundari announced the luxury cars will be sold to the public for K400,000 ($114,000), a hefty discount, which still seems pricey. That’s more expensive than the US version of the Maserati Quattroporte, which retails for $102,190. Spy shots have shown the next-generation model arrives in 2022 or 2023.
As if the situation wasn’t already embarrassing for the government, hundreds of cars imported for the summit are also still missing including Fords, Mazdas, Toyota Land Cruisers, and Mitsubishi Pajeros. Hey Papau New Guinea government! Give us a call if you find those and are still looking for a quick buck!
