The Maserati Zagato Spyder is based on the well-known Biturbo coupe model that was presented in Modena and started production back in 1981, with the Spyder starting production in 1984. Back then it was the first production car with a biturbo engine aspiration layout and was considered revolutionary for its time.
The design, release and production of the Biturbo and Spyder was done while under the ownership of Alejandro De Tomaso who acquired Maserati back in 1976. He had a vision of combining the Maserati brand with a luxurious yet affordable sports car for the public and was well received as such.
Even though the Biturbo was designed by Pierangelo Andreani and Marcello Gandini, the Spyder itself was designed and assembled by Zagato, a very well-known automobile design firm based in Milan who was famous for the design and creation of many beautiful cars such as the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato and the Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ. As a result, the build quality and level of luxury has been held to high expectations and was compared to the likes of the Mercedes SL and the Jaguar XJS V12 which is seen in the interior. Decent amounts of leather and walnut were used in the interior as standrad to give the Zagato Spyder that optimal luxurious experience.
The Zagato Spyder was released with either a 2.0L 18V V6 or a 2.8L twin-turbo 90 degree V6 which was paired to either a 3-speed auto, 4 speed ZF auto or a 5-speed ZF manual gearbox, giving it sufficient performance and power delivery for a pleasurable driving experience. A total of 603 examples of the Maserati Spyder i was created between 1989 and 1991 for the international market, making it a rather rare and collectible Maserati model.
This Maserati Zagato Spyder i was made in 1990, making it the most powerful version available with 220bhp and has the desirable 5-speed ZF manual transmission.
It completed a 4000 km Maserati tour of the Cape early in 2020 and has been in managed storage with Crossley & Webb since.
This is a great opportunity to own a rare and collectible Maserati with impressive performance levels. (only 603 Spyder i examples with the 2.8l V6 were produced worldwide)
