From 1952 through to 1957, Maserati cleaned up on the race track, winning seven World Championships and dominating Formula One, in large part due to lead driver Juan-Manuel Fangio. Emphasis then moved to road cars of the gran turismo class when the 3500 GT was introduced in 1957 at Geneva. The 3500 GT was powered by a 220-brake horsepower, hemi-head, 3,485-cubic centimetre inline six-cylinder, and it was available as either a 2+2 coupé or convertible. The coupé was wrapped in an aluminium superleggera body by Touring of Milan, whilst the convertible body was by Vignale.
The 1960 Maserati 3500 GT Coupe by Touring featured here is finished in stunning Dark Rosso Red with a beautifully preserved original black leather interior. This low mileage, highly original 3500 GT is one of just 257 examples produced and one of less than 75 examples remaining, making this Maserati one of the rarest in the world. Further, this magnificent motorcar was recently released from a large prominent collection and then underwent a full service by marque specialists that included a complete fuel system, brake system, and lubrication system overhaul. Accompanying this investment-grade 3500 is its Maserati classiche documentation as well as its owner’s manual. Seeing an Italian car from the 60’s with this level of originality is sure to make even the most discerning collector swoon. We are proud to offer this exceptional carbureted 3500 GT to the most sophisticated collector, investor, or enthusiast who only wants the best. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.
