Known History

In 1969, Maserati's management asked Ital-Design and its founder Giugiaro to come up with a sports car project with rear mid-engine, good handling and aerodynamic capabilities: in other words, a true response to the Lamborghini Miura. The Bora was introduced at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show and experienced a raging success.

This particular car is one of the first models, a 4.7L version from 1972. The certificate of conformity issued by Maserati (included in the file) states that it was produced in October 1972 and interestingly sold directly to its first owner F. PiŰch from Stuttgart, without going through one of the brand's distributors. There is therefore every reason to believe that it was the car of Ferdinand Porsche's grandson, the great entrepreneur and founder of Volkswagen Group as we know it today. Its current owner acquired it in 2014 during an auction in Austria, country where it was to remain for many years. It was in fact the second owner who imported it in Austria in 1980 and in the decades that followed, the car was not driven much on the road. In an enviable original condition to date, our Bora benefited from a major mechanical and cosmetic work in 2019, carried out by the renowned Belgian specialist Officina Valenti. The car was therefore stripped down, fully repainted, both front seats renovated and the engine completely restored; all of it for an amount exceeding Ç37,000 (details available in the file). It displays a mileage of 77,150 km to date, which could correspond to its original mileage. Furthermore, it still has its original colours, a "Nero" black bodywork complemented with a beautiful tan "Senape" leather interior. This is an automobile with a legendary design, a particularly modern interior and so representative of 1970s' styling, by far a stroke of genius from Giugiaro. Such an incredible example, restored and with original specifications, can only attract the attention of keen collectors.
