In 1957 at the Geneva Motor Show with the Maserati 3500 GT, a breathtakingly beautiful Coupé was presented to the public. Maserati wanted to challenge the Ferrari 250 GT. This “Gran Turismo” was powered by a magnificent in-line six-cylinder with twin spark ignition. This engine, which produced around 230 hp, was derived from the racing engine of the Tipo 350S and “domesticated” for road use. This version with three Weber twin carburettors has a far more reliable reputation than the later models with Lucas fuel injection. Powered in this specific way, the factory promised a top speed of 230 kilometres per hour.
From the design studio Vignale came the creation of the open Spider version by Giovanni Michelotti: the 3500 GT Spider with a stunningly feminine sweep of the hips at the rear. The characteristic Maserati trident in the radiator grille underlines the potent charisma of the front with two round auxiliary headlights. When opened, the soft top disappears completely into the space provided for it behind the front seats, remaining invisible in the sight of the side lines. The interior of the Vignale Spider is trimmed in the finest Conolly leather. The dashboard is in the same colour as the exterior paintwork and on the driver’s side there are the classically stylistic five round instruments. The interior is in no way behind the exterior elegance. Between 1960 and 1964, according to some sources, only 242 or 245 Vignale Spiders were built.
We are offering this Maserati 3500 GT Vignale Spider in its original colour scheme “Argenta Luna”, which leaves nothing to be desired in terms of overall condition. This car comes with “Matching Numbers” and the original colour combination inside/outside according to the delivery certificate. Equipped with the 5-speed gearbox, front disc brakes and Borrani spoke rims make this Vignale Spider in the carburettor version an extremely desirable collector’s car. Included with the Maserati Classiche certificate is all documentation such as factory order and delivery details.
