Lot 227: 1976 Maserati Bora Coupe
Maserati needs no introduction. Already a legendary racing marque before the war, the company turned to the limited production of sports cars for the road in the 1950s. These proved to be highly successful, and so manufacture continued throughout the '60s with the company taking credit for some of the most desirable cars of the era. The early '70s brought the advent of the mid-engined sports car, and so the great front engined Grand Tourers of the period such as the Ferrari Daytona and Maserati Ghibli gave way to this ruthlessly fast new breed. The flag bearers of this new supercar genre were the Ferrari Boxer and the Maserati Bora, road cars capable of over 170mph that, for the first time ever, had cornering capabilities to match their speed. The Bora, styled by Giugiaro at Ital Design, was powered by a 350bhp light alloy V8 lengthways ahead of the rear wheels, and had innovative four-wheel coil spring independent suspension. In ride and handling it was typical of its class - although defining its class simply as 'superior' is rather vague, especially since it was about 30 per cent more expensive than its counterparts. This Maserati Bora comes in red with black leather interior and for the last 20 years was in single ownership. Since having been restored, it has driven just 9,800km. Sitting on alloy wheels, equipped with air conditioning and complete with full German documentation, this legendary 1970`s icon is described as being in excellent condition and ready to be used by his next lucky owner. Mit nur 9,800 gefahrenen Kilometern nnach einer umfassenden Restaurierung ist dieser Bora nach Angaben des Verkufers in exzellentem Zustand. Ausgestattet mit Alurdern und Klimaanlage wartet dieser legendre Sportwagen der 70er Jahre auf seinen glcklichen neuen Besitzer.
