Lot 326 - 2003 Maserati Cambiocorsa Coupé
|Odometer reading||76,000 miles|
|Estimate||£12,000 - £16,000|
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 were 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 and providing better road holding.
This delightfully handsome Maserati is in excellent condition and has clearly been a well cared for example. Originally registered on 1st August 2003 and having covered 76,000 miles from new, she benefits from a good service history which is very important on these cars. Finished in green with tan leather interior and having recently been serviced, this Maserati Coupé is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate. Ready to be enjoyed immediately.
