Maserati Bora - For Sale

by Mike

The Bora was introduced in 1971 and was Maserati's first mid-engine sports car. It was powered by a 4.7 liter V8 engine putting out 310 hp with a 5 speed manual transmission. The Bora could accelerate to 60 MPH in 6.5 seconds and the top speed was 160 MPH.

There were 571 Boras made between 1971 and 1980. With styling by Giorgetto Giugiaro, at his own firm Ital Design, it has beautiful lines as would be expected.

This beauty below was parked next to me at the Hillsborough Concours d'Elegance this past July.

Boras have sold at auction for prices ranging from $44,000 to $90,000 over the past two years.

This 1974 model below is for sale at Copley Motorcars in Massachusetts for $53,800 and has 34,000 miles.

This 1978 red model below is for sale at Miller Motorcars in Connecticut for $99,500. It has only 2,281 miles!

The 1972 car below is for sale at Gullwing Motor Cars in New York for $49,500 and has 22,000 km (13,700 miles).

 There are many Boras for sale now so look at more than one before you decide. Pre-purchase inspection is important as is the cars history.
