The cool factor is off the charts for this stunning yet 'funky' machine.
A few Bora facts. The Bora was designed by Giugiaro and was first introduced to the world at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show. It was named after the Bora winds of Trieste. The car was Maserati's response to the Lamborghini Miura.
The earliest cars were powered by a mid-engined 4.7L V8, later enlarged to 4.9L. The Bora was the first Maserati with fully independent suspension and the car had several innovative technological features, partly thanks to Maserati being part of the Citroen family during the period.
The Bora was a true supercar of its time, capable of more than 175 mph. It shared the same ZF 'dog leg' five speed transaxle as the Ford GT40.
A total of 564 Boras were built between 1971 and 1978. Our 1973 model is one of 275 4.9L examples.
