Description

Introduced at the Geneva auto show in 1957, the Maserati 3500 GT was produced through 1964. More than 2,200 of these sleek 2+2 pillarless coupes were built, each one a tribute to the racing heritage of one of Italy's most storied car builders. The 3500 GT's alloy body was styled by Carrozzeria Touring and utilized the firm's famous Superleggera lightweight construction techniques.

A derivative of the engine designed for the world championship-winning Maserati Tipo 250F Formula 1 racer, the 3500 GT's 3.5-Liter DOHC six-cylinder engine produced 240-hp in carbureted form. The 1961-1964 production was equipped with a ZF five-speed manual transmission, replacing the 4-speed used earlier. The GTi designation arrived in 1962—the "i" signifying Lucas-sourced fuel injection, introduced that year.
