The Maserati Barchetta is a bit an outsider in the list of Maserati road cars as it was never really intended for road use. This car was developed for a single-make championship which was held on various race tracks across Italy and Europe during 1993. The Barchetta had a single backbone chassis made from aluminium. This was a new technology that had been developed for the Chubasco-prototype. The centrally mounted engine was the 2.0L V6 in 24-valve configuration with power boosted to 315hp, while its wheel geometry was Formula 1-style and the body was made from composite and carbon fibre. With a total weight of only 775kg, performances were outstanding. A road-going version was considered but never commercialised due to homologation difficulties.
