Overview

Produced: 1972-1983, 1534 produced.
Types: Coupe,2 doors,2 seats(2+2 Sports Coupe)
Maserati Merak Black Dash   (1974)

The 1972 Maserati Merak used the same body structure and styling as the much faster (and more expensive) Bora model. The Merak was powered by a 2.0 litre V6 engine which gave the car a top speed of around 130mph. An even more powerful 3.0 litre V6 powered the Merak SS which could top 150mph.

Unlike the Bora the Merak came with a 2+2 interior which coupled to the more manageable engine and gearbox made this Maserati reasonably practical. Between 1972-1983 some 1,534 examples of the Merak were built by Maserati making it a success in terms of sales.
