This Maserati Bora in the original light blue “Celeste” colour scheme and black Connoly leather interior was delivered in Italy in July 1972 and impresses with its breathtakingly beautiful aesthetics. Details such as the Campagnolo rims with flat wheel covers give this muscular sports car a refined elegance. In the same ownership since 2006, this Bora has been very pedantically maintained and all restoration and maintenance work has been completed by reputed specialist workshops. It is also worth mentioning that the V8 engine was rebuilt approx. 8’000km ago and the clutch was replaced. Invoice receipts of over CHF 114’000 and endless photos chronologically document all works since 2006. This Maserati Bora is in an exceptionally beautiful condition.
An incredible 50 years ago, the Maserati Bora was presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show on the 11th of March 1971. The mid-engine concept from the world of motorsport, which had already found its way into the road sports cars of competitors Lamborghini and Ferrari, was now also implemented at Maserati with the Bora. The engine was the successful 4.7-litre V8 with 310 hp at 6000 rpm, mounted longitudinally on a subframe attached to the body. The pop-up headlights were one of the Boras’ characteristic styling elements and helped to reduce air drag. The rear panel, which opened completely to the back, was a spacious luggage compartment with a capacity of around 300 litres. With the high-torque engine, this sports car reached an impressive top speed of over 270 kilometres per hour. The futuristic-looking Maserati Bora combined comfort and performance like no other competitor. The automotive press of the time applauded Maserati for it. The design and streamlined aerodynamics came from Giorgetto Giugiaro. The Bora was built until 1978 and only 289 examples were produced with the 4.7-litre engine. In 1972, the Maserati Bora cost an eye-watering CHF 76,000 in Switzerland. This was exactly the same price that Ferrari was asking for its 365 GTB/4.
