Lot 211: 2000 Maserati 3200 GTA

Sports, Touring, Historic Road and Racing Cars, Coys (30 April 2006)

With the 3200 GT in 1998 Maserati returned to its roots. The luxury coupé was styled by Italdesign, whose founder and head Giorgetto Giugiaro penned, among others, the classic Ghibli, Bora and Merak.The 3200 GT shared the Quattroporte IV's and Shamal's twin-turbo 3.2-liter V8, revised and tuned to 370 bhp while the 3200 GTA was equipped with an automatic gearbox and its engine delivered 368 bhp. The top speed is 177 mph (285 km/h), while the 0-60 dash is completed in around 5 seconds. The 104.8 inch wheelbase was just a centimeter longer than that of the Quattroporte IV, explaining the 3200 GT's class-leading cabin space. The car is certainly capable of carrying 4-up in comfort.The most remarkable detail of its design is the tail-lights consisting of the LED diodes placed in the shape of boomerang. The car was replaced in the beginning of 2002 by similarly designed successor, when Maserati decided to return to the US market. The original boomerang tail-lights had to be replaced because they didn't fulfill the US requirements for better visibility of the car's rear end during driving at night. Finished in Rosso Indianapolis with a cream leather interior, this car has the boomerang lights (universally regarded as more attractive than the conventional tail lights fitted on later cars) and is every bit as striking as a Maserati should be. This car was manufactured in 2000 and is in very good condition all round. This 3200 is fitted with the smooth automatic gearbox and has benefited from a new exhaust, new front discs and new pads all round in August '05. Servicing has been carried out according to Maserati guidelines and is supplied with a MoT valid until September of this year. Other work carried out on the car was a cam-belt service in July 2004, completed by HR Owen. The car is supplied with a V5 certificate, owners manual, spare keys and is taxed until the end of August.With the desirable boomerang tail lights and the 3.2 litre Maserati V8 up-front, this car offers space for 4 adults, and can cruise to the south of France at 150+mph. What more could you ask from a GT?
