Description

There is no denying the Biturbo’s style and flair reflect the earliest cars to come from Bologna.’ – Mark Gillies, Autocar.
Maserati’s mainstream model throughout the 1980s and the first series-production road car to employ a twin turbo-charged engine, the Biturbo debuted in two-door form 1982. Intended to challenge BMW and Mercedes-Benz in the luxury sporting saloon market, the Biturbo was of conventional, front engine/rear drive layout and featured all-independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and an interior boasting sumptuous leather upholstery and plentiful wood veneer trim.

The all-steel unitary chassis/body was styled in-house and built by Innocenti, part of the De Tomaso empire like Maserati. ZF five-speed manual and three-speed automatic were the two transmission options initially while a limited-slip differential came as standard. Produced initially with a 2.0-litre, three-valves-per-cylinder V6, the Biturbo gained 2.5-litre, 2.8-litre and 24-valve engines as the model range expanded throughout the 1980s to include four-door saloon and spyder variants.

Having covered a mere 29,700 miles from new, this wonderful Zagato bodied BiTurbo is finished in ivory with a tan leather interior, – including suede door inserts. The car has been in a collection for the last 15 years and is offered today in very good condition, and fitted with its factory body kit and spoiler this is a Maserati for the collector, and has to be one of the lowest mileage examples available worldwide. Offered with a realistic reserve.
