The first serious production Maserati, the 3500GT, entered production in 1957. The 3500GT came with a 3485cc straight six engine which produced around 235bhp and gave the car a top speed in excess of 140mph. Early cars had drum brakes and a four speed gearbox, later cars had all-round disc brakes and a five speed transmission.

For a luxury sports car with no established pedigree the 3500GT was certainly a beautifully styled car. Its handsome lines were the work of Touring (for the coupe) and Vignale (for the spyder) and both bodies were built on a tubular chassis. Compared to other similar rivals (such as the Aston DB4) sales for the 3500GT were excellent, by 1964 2,227 examples had been built.
