While they have yet to achieve similar values to their contemporaries from Ferrari and Lamborghini, we’ve always loved Maserati’s 3200 GT and 4200 GT sports cars. Relatively small and blessed with an attractively minimalist design from Giorgetto Giugiaro, these Maseratis straddle the line between sports car and grand tourer, resulting in a eminently useable modern classic. Now, MARC Classic & Sports Cars are offering two of the rarest variants of the 3200 GT and 4200 GT, and we doubt you’ll want to miss them!
Starting with the more senior car, this manual 2003 Maserati 3200 GT Assetto Corsa is one of just 259 examples ever produced and shows a mere 3,100 km on the odometer. Still presenting in as new condition, this Rosso Mondial 3200 GT even retains the factory plastic covers for the rear carpets, making it a true time-warp example. Being an Assetto Corsa special edition, this 3200 GT features lowered sports suspension and a 370 hp V8 engine, which should prove to be more than sufficient for a good weekend blast along your favourite back roads.
Next up is the 3200 GT’s evolution, a one-of-180 Maserati GrandSport MC Victory, built to honour the Maserati MC12’s win of the 2005 FIA GT Championship. Featuring redesigned aerodynamics courtesy of Frank Stephenson, this Blue Victory example has been enjoyed sparingly over its life and now shows just 27,500 km on the clock. Even better, this car’s previous owner spent over 20,000 euros refreshing his pride and joy, including the replacement of those horrendous sticky plastic parts that plague Maseratis and Ferraris of this era. So, if you and your best mate are looking for a pair of matching Maseratis to enjoy over the summer, look no further!
