1963 Maserati 3500 GT Vignale Spyder

The Maserati 3500 GT (Tipo 101) and the Maserati 3500 GT Convertibile (Tipo 101/C) are 2-door coupé and convertible grand tourers made by Italian car manufacturer Maserati between 1957 and 1964. At its heart was a 3.5-liter twin-cam, twin-plug inline-6 that produced nearly 250hp on a trio of Weber carbs.
The engine was derived from the 350S sports racing car. Despite an eye-watering $13,000 price tag in 1960, the 3500 GT proved to be popular, with production reaching 2,400 units between 1957 and 1964, more than any previous Maserati model.
Just 250 Spyders were built over a five-year period.
