Description

Maserati Ghibli GT 1996.

Ultimate GT, drives excellent. A very well sorted example. One of the last ones built. Lot’s of torque, one of the few 2.8 GT’s manual (6 speed Getrag) and Ferrari 456 rear axle and differential. Very low production numbers.

Not to be confused with earlier models in terms of built quality, usability and performance.

Most staggering is the car’s open road performance with zero lag and blistering acceleration in 6 th gear.

Indeed contemporary press of the the time concluded “ this is the car that the m3 should have been”.

All working mechanics, engine with twin turbos in perfect condition. Cambelt and waterpump changed early 2018 - not more than 5.000 km since. Tyres 70 %. Differential and whole driveline in excellent order.

This car is a reimport from Japan where the car has been slightly tuned and suspension has been improved (no electronic suspension that usually causes problems) but with mechanically adjustable shocks providing a super well sorted ride quality.

Unfortunately no service history to prove engine revision, but for sure the car had one and runs extremely well, no need for expensive engine out replacement of chains at the back of the block.

A few minor chips and scratches, one lighter spot on the boot (see picture), mostly original paint, deep dark blue. 17” wheels all damage free. Interior in good condition with nice patina. Central lock doesn’t work, the right electric window sometimes fails.

These cars are currently recognized for their true qualities and it’s the last iteration of this model series with Bi turbos and values go up.

Selling because of lack of use and this is definitely a car that can be used.

The car is on Spanish plates and located in Spain.
