1963 Maserati 3500 GTi

Freshly Restored "Amaranto Roma" Maserati 3500 GTi. Desirable Late Specification Car with Fuel Injection, 5-Speed, and Disc Brakes.

The 3500 represented a critical turning point during a period that most collectors and enthusiasts agree was the golden age of Maserati. Having successfully raced in Formula 1 (the 250F won the world championship in 1957) as well as Sports Car racing during the second half of the 1950s, the company sought to stabilize their finances by increasing road car production over the small numbers of the beautiful but low volume A6 series. The car to achieve this end was the 3500 GT which entered production in 1957, in the midst of the feverish Formula 1 activities. Handsomely styled by Giulio Alfieri and constructed by Touring of Milan using their Superleggera ("super lightweight") technique, the 3500 GT was powered by a road-adapted version of the 3.5 liter twin-cam inline-6 350S race car engine complete with twin plug ignition. The car was continuously developed, with the addition of disc brakes, limited slip differential, 5-speed gearbox (all three of which were initially optional and later made standard), and importantly, fuel-injection for the first time on an Italian production car when the 3500 GTi arrived in 1960.


This particular car is a late production car in the definitive 3500 specification: equipped with fuel-injection, disc brakes, and 5-speed gearbox. It was delivered new in Merano, in northern Italy, in April 1963. The next known owner was another Italian who sold the car in 1991 to an American collector based in California. After a long period in South Africa the car was brought to the UK, and in 2016 was sold to the current owner on continental Europe, who restored it completely. The car is finished in beautiful "Amaranto Roma" over black leather interior, is matching numbers and comes with the official certification from Maserati.
