Maserati 3500 GT Competition (1961)
A Maserati 3500 GT is not your typical competition car, despite the fact that this stylish GT (designed and constructed by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera) had an engine derived from the famous Maserati 350S racers. However one day an Italian gentleman decided to build a competition version based on this lovely grand tourer, and this was the quite stunning result.
And so in 1983 this unique Maserati was rebuilt for competition purposes, and only used for historic racing since. It looks incredibly cool in yellow with a very racy and stripped out interior. The car was raced in Italy from 1983 until 2000, and was then acquired by Bob Gilbert who had it rebuilt by Bill McGrath. The Maserati was then succesfully campaigned for many years in British historic racing, and maintained regardless of cost. It had an older FIA HTP (Competition GT Car - Period E - 1947 to 1961 - FIA Class GTS7), and we have just upgraded/updated the fuel tank and harness. As the car also has a road registration, we have fitted two comfortable leather sports seats in the Maserati, to make it the perfect tool to participate in great road events like Targa Florio Historic and Gran Premio Nuvolari, but it would also a great entrant in the Zoute GP or Historic Tulpenrallye. The car is well documented, and a welcome sight at any historic racing event. It may be accepted for Goodwood Revival or Members Meeting as well, because it is such a rare and impressive beast on the starting grid. The chance that you meet another competition 3500 GT on the road or track is almost non-existing.
So if you are looking for a proper gentlemans competition car, then this is the one to consider. Very realistically priced, and a true thoroughbred which will make you stand out on any startgrid in the world. Offers invited.
