|Odometer reading||48,800 miles|
|Estimate||£14,000 - £18,000|
|Result||Sold - £15,680|
The Maserati 4200 is an evolution from the previous model 3200 and also a reference to the increase in engine size from 3.2 to 4.2 litres. The Spyder was first unveiled to the public at the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show with the Coupé's debut following shortly after at the 2002 Detroit Motor Show. Both cars were designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of ItalDesign and is a true four-seater capable of comfortably seating two adults in the back. The naturally aspirated V8 engine was based on a Ferrari unit producing 385hp at 7000rpm; the manual gearbox is a six-speed unit that was available either as a GT (manual) or CC (Cambiocorsa) using paddle shifters. The Cambiocorsa ('race change' in Italian) is an electro-hydraulic manual transmission that uses a Formula 1 type gearbox with hydraulic operation and electronic management operated by F1-style paddles behind the steering wheel. The gearbox is located at the back of the car with the rear differential giving equal weight disproportion between the front and rear of the car giving better road holding.
With Ferrari and Maserati the service history is all important; you can therefore relax in this instance in the knowledge that this has a full service history, all at Maserati's dealers with a recent service at Lancaster's. A new clutch was installed at 38,000 miles and the correct Michelin Sport tyres are fitted to refurbished wheels. The private registration plate is also included in the sale as are all documents, two sets of keys and the owners' wallet and handbooks. Described by the vendor as excellent in every respect, this extremely reasonably priced example should generate much interest.
