The third generation Maserati Quattroporte created a new kind of supercar with four doors and four comfortable seats. The first version, launched in 1963, was a comfortable automobile capable of exceeding 200 km/h. The series III, launched in 1978, met with wide success, with a career that lasted eleven years and 2,141 units sold during this period. Designed by Giugiaro and angular in style, the car featured a four camshaft V8, in its 4.9-litre version, developing 280bhp and mated to an automatic gearbox. It had a very luxurious interior, with pleated natural leather seats and rosewood trim on the dashboard and doors.
This superb example has been in the current ownership for 20 years and has benefitted from being regularly serviced by renowned marque specialists, Bill McGrath. The history file also contains MOT’s dating back to 1999 when he bought the car and this cherished Maserati has of course been kept garaged. No stranger to public attention, this Quattroporte has featured in several magazine articles at home and abroad showing just how exemplary it is. Described by the vendor to be in very good to excellent condition throughout, we suggest that any inspection would come to the same conclusion. A truly wonderful opportunity that is not to be missed.
