![CDATA[
The Maserati Merak was introduced in 1972, essentially a lighter version of the Maserati Bora. It substituted an all new Maserati designed quad-cam, three litre, V6 motor for the Bora's larger V8; resulting not only in a lower cost but with room for a small back seat and better handling due to lower weight and a better front/rear weight distribution. Aesthetically, the Merak differed from the otherwise very similar Bora; mainly in sporting open flying buttresses instead of the Bora's fully glassed rear, the mid-engine Merak used the Bora bodyshell but the extra space offered by the smaller engine was used to carve out a second row of seats suitable for children. As with the Bora, certain CitroŰn hydraulic systems were used such as the brakes, clutch, and headlight pods.
This fabulous left hand drive Maserati Merak, which has not been touched since it was manufactured, is special indeed. Finished in highly desirable silver metallic complemented by its original and still supple black leather, this 1975 Merak has had just two owners and covered a mere 2,136 miles from new. Powered by the extremely sweet sounding 3.0-litre V6 pushing out 190bhp with four-overhead cams and triple Weber downdraft carburettors, the Merak is an extremely exciting car to drive. The five-speed manual shifts crisply and confidently, all while surrounding you with the exquisite leather and wool interior appointments, which are totally original. It comes with factory fitted air conditioning, Campagnolo light alloy wheels, Jaeger gauges, five-speed manual gearbox and power steering. The Merak was conceived as a compliment to the larger Bora but gives up nothing in style and sophistication; it is also exceedingly rare with only 647 examples of this model produced. It is a wonderful car by any stretch of the imagination and finding one with only two former keepers and with so few miles is truly incredible. Do not miss this opportunity to acquire what is possibly the most original, lowest mileage Merak in existence which will need some light recommissioning.]]
