The Maserati 3200GT was styled by Italdesign whose founder and head, Giorgetto Giugiaro, previously designed, amongst others, the Ghibli, Bora and Merak and so certainly had an impressive pedigree. Sold mainly in Europe, the 3200GT shared the twin-turbo, 3.2 litre, V8 featured in the Quattroporte IV and Shamal, revised and tuned to 365bhp. The tail-lights consisted of LEDs arranged in the shape of a boomerang. The outer layer of the 'boomerang' provided the brake light, with the inner layer providing the directional indicator. They changed not long after that to a more conventional cluster thus making these ‘early’ car more desirable.
The car on offer was first registered on 5th September 2000 by the supplying dealer Maranello Concessionaires Ltd. of Egham.
