The Maserati 3200 GT was styled by Italdesign whose founder and head, Giorgetto Giugiaro, previously designed, amongst others, the Ghibli, Bora and Merak and so certainly had the pedigree behind him. Sold mainly in Europe, the 3200GT shared the twin-turbo 3.2 litre, V8 featured in the Quattroporte IV and Shamal, revised and tuned to 365bhp. The tail-lights consisted of LEDs arranged in the shape of a boomerang. The outer layer of the ‘boomerang’ provided the brake light, with the inner layer providing the directional indicator. Sadly, the US insisted on bulbs and so, as is so often the way, style made way for bureaucracy. Nevertheless, it went on to be a great success until 2007, when it was replaced by Maserati’s bigger and more elegant GranTurismo which saw the return of LED taillight clusters, this time meeting US regulations.
This particular 3200 GT offered for sale has benefitted from a multitude of mechanical and cosmetic work in the last 6 years under its current owner. This includes a recent service (August 2019), having the throttle body refurbished and regular annual services at a local independent specialist. Aesthetic work includes refurbished alloys, replaced wheel centres and refurbished steering wheel. In addition to this, the roof, doors, bonnet and rear quarters have been repainted following cosmetic improvements (remove scratches, stone chips and pull out occasional minor dents), Air con condenser replaced. New odometer fitted at approximately 73,600 miles as advised by the garage. The paperwork for this vehicle is extensive and this is a testament to the care bestowed to this vehicle in recent years. This luxurious and well equipped GT represents good value in the current market.
