This is one of the last bargain supercars of the late seventies and early eighties. It is a 1980 Maserati Quattroporte, Left hand Drive, a US car, finished in Red with Tan Leather. It runs and drives but has been in dry storage for many years and is in need of recommissioning. It has had all EU taxes paid and comes with its California Title ready for EU Registration.

Styled by Frua and introduced in 1963, the V8-powered Quattroporte was a landmark model for Maserati, being the Modena firm's first four-door saloon and its first car of unitary construction.

The chassis was related to that of the Maserati Kyalami, in turn derived from the De Tomaso Longchamp and therefore ultimately related to the De Tomaso Deauville luxury sedan. Front suspension was of the double wishbone type, with single coaxial dampers, coil springs, and an anti-roll bar. The rear axle used a peculiar layout very similar to Jaguar independent rear suspension. Each cast aluminum hub carrier was linked to the chassis only by a single lower wishbone, the half shafts doubling as upper control arms, and was sprung by twin coaxial dampers and coil spring units. Rear brakes were mounted inboard, and the calipers bolted directly to the housing of the differential. The engine was an evolution of Maserati's own all-aluminum, four overhead cam V8, fed by four Weber carburetors. The Quattroporte III marked the last of the hand-built Italian legend.

Our car comes with an owners manual and parts book but does not have any service history to speak of, it is in a very good condition, however, is not rusty, being a California car, and will respond well to recommissioning. At the asking price I dont think there is a cheaper car in the world!
