"This car was delivered new in October 1972 to a rich industrial in Turin. Less than a year later, it was registered at the name of a young lady that lived in Milan. The gossip is that this lady was the secret lover of the first owner… In the summer of ’76, the car was sold to a well known hotelier, that sold it in the nineties to the previous owner. He fell in love with the car and he decided to restore the car and invest fortunes to make it the way it is nowadays: beyond perfection. The proof of this is that the car was exposed in Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari in Modena for the prestigious 100 Years Maserati exhibition. With the car comes all the documentation of the restoration, as well as the original Libretto that documents the entire life of the car. If you like American restorations with lots of shiny chrome and thick paint, this car is not for you. If you appreciated class and finesse, with just the right hint of patina, then this car is a work of art. Of course the car was fully restored, but this is not your average restoration. The coachwork was restored completely by former employees that worked for Bacchelli & Villa, a well-known Italian coachbuilder. The fit and shutlines of the coachwork is absolutely perfect, and the mirror-smooth Verde Bosco Metallizato paintwork, that is applied in original 1970’s “Nitro” based paint from Carrozziere Bossetti in Modena, has got a structure and glow that simply cannot be attained with modern water based paints. The interior of the Maserati is stunningly restored with, amazingly, many original materials. The majority of the leather upholstery and headlining as well as the rosewood dashboard is the original trim, brought back to almost new standard, with a gorgeous patina. Perhaps it’s the best interior we’ve seen on a classic car so far. The engine and all mechanical parts are completely rebuild into the finest details by experts. The engine was bench tested and delivers a silky smooth 253 BHP and 390NM torque. The 5 speed gearbox is silky smooth and the power assisted steering and original air conditioning make life very pleasant indeed. Driving this distinguished car brings you back to the romance of the early seventies and let you revive the flair and style that the wealthy and debonair Italian entrepreneur that bought it new, must have had. All that’s missing now is a pair of Persol 714 sunglasses and a tailor made suit."
