The Maserati Bi-Turbo came in a number of different format's however the Ghibli II was by far in a way the more desirable, better built with improved styling and better designed interior comfort. The return of the Maserati Ghibli in 1992 was trumpeted by its maker as a hugely important milestone with this example representing the top-of-the-range form. With the iconic analogue Maserati clock set into walnut dashboard, these well-appointed Italian classics are becoming increasingly desirable.
It takes a very specific collector to absorb a Maserati into his or her collection, they need looking after in order to keep performance levels as they should be and the condition up to scratch. Fortunately, right from the word go, this car benefits from a comprehensive history folder detailing works that have taken place throughout its lifetime. With just four previous keepers, significant sums have insured that this car has been maintained to the best possible condition. The history folder details over £18,000 spent with not only Maserati specialists but the best Maserati specialists available, that is to say, Bill McGrath. This includes not just spark plugs and air filters but a full engine rebuild, new turbo's, new cambelts, new brake discs and pads all round as well as complicated brake pipes. The paintwork has also been refreshed to an exceptionally high standard for no other reason that there were a few age-related marks which the previous fastidious owner wanted to take care of. This extremely well-presented, fully documented Maserati is supplied with a, history folder and MoT test certificate expiring in March next year. These cars are underrated but are on the radar and prices are rising. You heard it here first!
