We do love a Sebring here and this is yet another extremely rare example. This time it is UK Supplied Factory Right Hand Drive Series 2 car. This car is in a great useable condition with lovely paint, an original interior and superb mechanicals. It left the factory in a mid Metallic Blue with Red Leather and was fitted with Borrani Wire Wheels, which it stil lhas today. It was sold new to the Maserati Concession in London and been in the UK ever since.

Maserati's survival strategy for the 1960s centred on establishing the company as a producer of road cars. The Modena marque's new era began in 1957 with the launch of the Touring-bodied 3500GT. A luxury '2+2', the 3500GT drew on Maserati's competition experience, employing a tubular chassis frame and an engine derived from the Alfieri-designed 350S sports racing car unit of 1956. Suspension was independent at the front by wishbones and coil springs, while at the back there was a conventional live axle/semi-elliptic arrangement. Power output of the twin-cam six was around 220bhp initially; later examples produced 235bhp on fuel injection. Built on the short-wheelbase but otherwise similar chassis of the Vignale-bodied 3500GT spyder, the Sebring 2+2 coupé arrived in 1962. By now a five-speed gearbox, four-wheel disc brakes and fuel injection were standard equipment, while automatic transmission, air conditioning and a limited-slip differential were options. Introduced in 1965, the Sebring 3700 (or Series II) came with a 3.7-litre, 245bhp engine. Some cars left the factory with 4.0-litre units towards the end of Sebring production in 1969, by which time only 242 Series II cars had been made.

Our car in now finished in a beautiful Metallic Green colour with its original Red Leather interior, a striking combination, it has recently had much engine work and as a result, drives very well indeed. There are very few RHD S2 cars made, probably less than 10, so please be quick if you would like to add this to your collection.
