This left-hand drive, 'matching numbers' Quattroporte III 4.9 litre automatic, which apparently cost in excess of £89,000 when delivered new to a Swiss diplomat in 1986, has had just four keepers to date. It is a pretty rare motorcar too, as there were just 1,806 4.9-litre automatic variants produced. 'C906 LOX' is finished in its original livery of splendid Dark Aquamarine Blue bodywork teamed with Deep Tan leather interior trim and currently displays a total of 137,400 kilometres. The vendor considers it to be in 'concours' condition, having enjoyed a bare metal re-spray, £9,000 engine overhaul and thorough mechanical fettling including: new rubbers, suspension system, ball joints, U-joints, driveshaft parts, brakes and brake callipers. The car has also had new front and rear windows, radiator, fans and wiring, fuse box, battery, carburettors, thermostat, heater unit and starter motor. Two new tyres have recently been made for it too. The interior has been extensively refurbished. The Maserati certainly appears to have been retained in 'tip top order throughout its life', with its maintenance record showing no less than 36 visits to specialists for the purpose of service or repair. Indeed, it has just been serviced by Armari Supercars at the cost of £2,756. The saloon has electric seats / windows / mirrors and comes with its original service history book and paperwork. It is the owner's view that this is not only 'the best Maserati Quattroporte III available' but also 'a drive away car with no known issues'. This desirable Maserati is now offered with a huge history file of books, paperwork and related magazine articles. 'C906 LOX' was the subject of detailed article which appeared in the Viale Ciro Menotti magazine. An extremely rare opportunity, this rare and evocative Quattroporte III is MOT tested and ready to enjoy.

PLEASE NOTE: The rear passenger side door lock is broken, a new part has been ordered and will be forwarded to the successful purchaser.
