Description

Even though Maserati had tried a mid-engine concept in race cars more than 10 years previously, it took some time to warm to the idea of a similar layout for a road car but when the Bora finally entered the stage it did it with a bang! More useable than a Miura or a BB and exceedingly elegant. Like so many Boras, this example was first delivered to the US but has been in Switzerland for many years, where the ungainly US-specification bumpers and lights were replaced by European items and the coachwork was partly restored. The interior is still in good, unrestored condition. This also applies to the Matching-Numbers engine, the gearbox and the remaining mechanics. The last MOT (with Veteran Code) was completed in April 2011. A rare occasion to acquire one of only 235 examples delivered with the desirable 4.9 litre V8 engine.
