First sold on 24 September 1962 by the Dutch importer Naasland, in Voolurg, this Maserati 3500 GTi coupé belonged to a French enthusiast based in the Var during the 1980s. The current owner acquired it at auction in 2013, from an enthusiast who had bought it in 2001 from a collector in Bordeaux. It was fully restored between 2008 and 2010, at which point the Lucas injection system (which will be given with the car) was replaced by triple Weber carburettors. The car was repainted in its stunning original colour, Maya red, with black leather upholstery.
After buying the car, the current, very meticulous owner, entrusted it to a Swiss specialist who refined the bodywork. His personal mechanic, who also looks after his competition Maserati, carried out a thorough mechanical overhaul of the car, to ensure it was in perfect condition. It has covered less than 2 000 km since this work was carried out. This elegant coupé has been exhibited at the Pantheon in Basel, an automobile museum that held a Maserati retrospective open to the public. In addition, the car comes with a Maserati Classiche certificate, confirming that it is the original colour.
An elegant car with a sporty engine, this Maserati 3500 GTi is in superb condition, having been looked after by a series of passionate owners.
