The first car launched by Maserati under Ferrari control, the Maserati 3200 immediately impressed the critics. A stunning body by Italdesign, a thumping 3,217cc twin-turbo V8, and a very comfortable cabin was a step into the modern era. Delivering 370bhp, top speed is 168mph, reached with Maserati's usual heart-stopping exuberance.
Today, well maintained 3200s are difficult to find. This 2002, right-hand drive example is a 3200GT Automatica with optional four-speed auto gearbox, and it has a substantial recent service history. Earlier this year, the vendor spent £10,000 with HR Owen on servicing including new shocks, springs and ABS unit. Cam belts were changed just under 4,000 miles ago at 71,450 miles, and the MOT history (valid until February 2020) shows regular use back to 2006, something critical for these cars.
Described as being in good condition throughout, the blue paintwork contrasts beautifully with the grey leather interior. Offered with no reserve, this is a very special car.
PLEASE NOTE: This lot was sold at our October 16th IWM Duxford auction. However, the purchaser was unable to complete the transaction due to ill health. The vendor has chosen to enter the car into our next available sale rather than pursue the defaulting purchaser further.
