Description

Estimate: £11,000 - £13,000
In 1976 Maserati introduced the more powerful and lighter Merak SS. Only 652 were made until production of the SS stopped in 1982. Its engine produced 15% more power, raising horsepower to 220bhp and weight was reduced by 152 kg to 1400 kg, resulting in a top speed of 152 mph. After 1977, the Merak SS was bestowed with the interior and dash of the Maserati Bora. The Merak SS also saw a return to traditional hydraulics, spelling the end for the Citroen high pressure system.
In 1977, and now under De Tomaso ownership, two things happened; firstly the smaller capacity Merak 2000 was introduced, and secondly the Bora was discontinued. This now made the Merak Maserati's only sports car until the Merak went out of production in 1982.
The example you see here is rare SS model which has been in the current ownership for the last 20 years, and is presented with bills for maintenance, servicing and repair work, also a V5 and previous MoT certificates. It is described
