Maserati made their name out of much pre and postwar motor racing success. Their most celebrated driver was Argentinean Juan Manual Fangio, who won seven World Championship races between 1953 and 1957, culminating in his becoming World Champion driver in 1957 at the wheel of a Maserati 250F. The Bologna marque also very nearly beat arch rivals Ferrari to the World Sportscar title. The last of the founding Maserati Brothers, Ettore, died in 1990 and, after Citroen engines had been used for a while and Chrysler became a shareholder, De Tomaso sold out to Fiat in 1993.
The vendor of this 1988-made and right-hand drive Spyder with 2491cc capacity six-cylinder, twin-turbocharged engine claims that this is an exceptional Maserati having been the proverbial one lady owner for the past seven years. Finished in traditional Rosso Corsa with cream leather interior, the Zagato-crafted classic is superb to drive apparently with all the performance available you could possibly wish for combined with much comfort. First built in1987, although registered 1988, with twin Weber carbs it has been regularly serviced and always garaged when not in use.
