Lot 225 - 1983 Maserati Quattroporte III
|Odometer reading||33,671 km|
|Estimate||£23,000 - £29,000|
Produced by Maserati, the Quattroporte is a four-door, luxury sports saloon, for which the name translated from Italian literally means ‘four doors’. There have been six generations of this car; the first was introduced in 1963 and the current model launched in 2013. The Quattroporte IV from 1994 was a restyled, four-door version of the Ghibli II Coupé designed by Marcello Gandini. The new car, smaller than its predecessors, was aerodynamic and featured Gandini's trademark angular rear wheel arch. A 2.8-Litre, twin-turbo, V6 was installed producing 280bhp and reaching a claimed top speed of 158mph. In 1995, a new release, the V8, 3.2-Litre Biturbo from the Maserati Shamal was introduced, developing 330bhp with a claimed top speed of 168mph.
This delightful Maserati is registered in Portugal and presents in virtually unmarked condition. The brown coachwork is unmarked and the sumptuous interior with its ample legroom, wooden dashboard and leather interior is in superb order. We are advised this Quattroporte drives with no known faults; the vendor is a knowledgeable classic car enthusiast. The odometer has a reading of 33,671km (20,922 miles) which, whilst not warranted, is thought to be correct. Supplied with a good history folder, this Maserati is one of the best examples we have seen.
