This actual Bora was featured in Maserati magazine.


The Bora really is a gorgeous machine. even more so with the Green&Stainless color combination. This specific car offers the 4. 7L V8 as opposed to the 4. 9L. offering unique features discussed further.


Production ran from 1971 to 1978. with 524 Boras eventually being built. 289 of which were 4. 7L's and the remaining 235. 4. 9L's. How many of each were LHD and how many were RHD is unstated by Maserati


As stated. this particular car is powered by the 4. 7L V8. A fellow Maserati. the Ghibli. also powered by a 4. 7L motor at the time was tuned to give 335 bhp in SS form. whilst the 310 bhp Bora was tuned for a smoother power delivery but more initial ignition advance gave it more power lower in the rev range. Differences in the gearing are a little harder to understand. the Ghibli had the option of two final drives 3. 31 or 3. 54 both of these lower than the Boras' 4. 11 in US form or 3. 77 for the few rhd cars. also having a 2. 97 first gear verses 2. 86 in the Bora made the heavier but more powerful Ghibli accelerate at almost exactly the same rate as the Bora. initially. However as speed climbed the more highly geared Bora ( 5th gear of . 74 verses . 90 in the Ghibli ) would take the lead. top speeds were similar at 154 to 160 for the Ghibli verses 155 mph for US spec Boras' and up to 174 mph for RHD and European spec cars without smog controls.


We bought this car with minimal crash damage to the rear of the car. as seen in the image/s.  Although the car has a clean title it was sold on auction from an insurance company so will show as an insurance car. As such we have listed it as a rebuilt title.


We have replaced the right rear knuckle for the car. the upper control arm and the lower control arm.  We are currently in the process of replacing the rear bottom panel and will fabricate the left and right rear corners.  At that point the car will need minimal work to align the rear deck lid and some of the hardware related thereto.


In terms of the rest of the car. although not damaged. we would replace the driver's sill (which has been replaced with stainless steel sills in any case).  The passenger's seat has one rip in it which the prior owner has taped over.  We would want to have both seats recovered.


Other than that - this is an amazing car in a beautiful color scheme that needs to be seen in person to appreciate.  It runs strong and will do nothing but continue to appreciate in value.


We highly recommend you contact us for more photos and information.  


Happy bidding
