Since the 1920s Italian race cars of Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Lancia, and later Ferrari and Abarth have been painted in rosso corsa ("racing red"). This was the customary national racing colour of Italy as recommended between the world wars by the organisations that later became the FIA. In that scheme of international auto racing colours French cars were blue (Bleu de France), British cars were green (British racing green), etc.

2014 Maserati Quattroporte

Following the opposition’s lead, the Quattroporte now comes with a twin-turbocharged V-8 engineered by Maserati and built by Ferrari. Cavallino’s first boosted engine for the street since the F40, the 3.8-liter V-8 is more powerful than that car’s engine, producing 523 horsepower and 524 pound-feet of torque, numbers in line with rival offerings. Fuel economy also is vastly improved from the old car, estimated at 14 mpg city and 21 highway, up from 12 and 19. A 404-hp, twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 paired with all-wheel drive is in the wings, but our sampling was limited to the V-8.

Now that they have the fuel economy up I may consider buying one

Used them too much when new. That's why most stuff wears out early.

Define perfectly good.

I put in some interwebly superior to, but cheaper than stock, special red ones. They started leaking at about 3000 miles.

I Bumped those for the latelyest, bestest, mostest updatedest OEM seals, and now have over 23000 miles on them with (so far) no leak.

How can they be perfectly good if they leak?

There is no right answer to that question.
