Well, when you think that headlights/taillights are the most expensive and complex component of automobiles...

Well probably not most complex, but unlike say a fender, a headlight needs federal or EC certification, so certifying a bespoke small volume unit would be expensive;

Thankfully the engine costs mere pennies and has no complexity at all, but it's the headlights that sop up all those development dollars.

On a more coherent note, why is it dubbed M500 when the M600 is the current offering?

Because it sits lower down the range than the M600. It's not a replacement.

Given how gorgeous this is and how style challenged the M600 is...

I saw this one at Goodwood this weekend. I see some Chiron bits on it. In general it does not look very good, and not only for shared parts (most other supercar companies don't mind to have bespoke parts). The problem is that it does not feel "real" enough. It's a bit plasticky, so to say.

Bespoke parts is pure automotive BS. The bottom line is: do the parts work? If they work, then the origin of the parts is of no concern.

I find it funny the lengths to which Maserati pretends that the Chrysler V6 cast in Kokomo is a totally different engine than the Pentastar because Ferrari designed it. Utter nonsense. You could drop a Hemi in a Maserati and if it worked performance wise, who cares?
