Description
The first Maserati road car based on a mid-engine design, the Bora was a milestone in Maserati history, and also the first car developed under full Citroën ownership. Engineer Guilio Alfieri had gained much experience with the earlier Maserati “Birdcage” Tipo 63-65 race cars, and adapted their mid-engine layout to incorporate a V8 engine, first in 4.7-liter and later in 4.9-liter configuration. The Bora’s advanced fastback design was another masterpiece from Giorgetto Giugiaro and his new styling studio, Italdesign. Capable of a 171 mph top speed, the Bora was equipped with Citroën’s complex hydraulic system, which operated the brakes, retractable headlights, the adjustment of the driver’s seat and the pedals. Sales of the Bora suffered in the mid-1970s amid the oil crisis, while racing plans were thwarted due to homologation difficulties. Despite building only 524 examples between 1971 and 1978, the Bora remains a masterpiece of cutting-edge 1970s sports car design.
