Cult Classics are proud to be offering this One of just 40 Right Hand drives examples produced; this 1960 Maserati 3500 GT wears seductive two door coupe coachwork by famed coach-builders Touring of Milano. The coupés were hand-built by Touring using aluminium panels and 'Superleggera' principles.

An official letter from Maserati in 1988 confirms the 3500 GT still wears its beautiful original colour scheme of Grigio over a Red leather interior, the only alteration being the stunning Ruby Red roof which greatly enhances the cars overall appearance. Inside the lovely Red leather piped in Grey remains soft and welcoming and the vibrant Italian Red carpets appear unworn.

The dashboard is pure Maserati 1960 and the steering wheel is simply a work of art. Pleasingly, the car retains its cream Bakelite gear lever knob and the early Motorola radio. The boot is beautifully finished in quilted red leather extending also to the boot lid.

Being a later model the car is fitted with disc brakes. The 3.4-litre straight-six engine was a significant step-up developing more power than the A6G, and pleasingly in terms of marketing, the 3500GT's power unit was distantly related to the 250F Grand Prix car's as well as the 300S and 350S sports racers. It was up-to-the-minute, boasting a twin-overhead camshaft design that had been reworked by chief engineer Giulio Alfieri to improve power delivery and to make it docile enough for road use. It breathes through triple Webers carburettors and with twin spark plugs per cylinder, with a power output of 220 bhp. The engine is mated to the then newly designed ZF-S4-17 gearbox with synchromesh on all four gears making this, in the mid-fifties, a pretty advanced mechanical package, a fact that wasn't lost on Mr Ferrari.

The engine is in fine fettle firing up instantly & pulling strongly. The all synchromesh gear bot is a delight to use & feels way ahead of tis time.

Accompanying the car is a wonderful history folder that includes photographic documentation of the car's restoration, a large number of invoices detailing works completed over the years and numerous older MoTs, including one that was issued in 1983. Also included within the file are the Maserati 3500 GT’s Owner's Hand Books and Operating Manual.

This Maserati drives simply beautifully & compares very favourably to contemporary Ferraris of the time but at a tenth of the price!!!

In the late 1980s this Maserati was sold to its second and last owner in Treviso, and
