1974 Maserati Bora 4.7

When Citroën acquired Maserati in 1968, the first order of business was rejuvenation of its model lineup. The brand-new mid-engined Bora (Tipo 117) followed. The two-seat coupe was manufactured by Maserati from 1971 to 1978.

In common with other Maserati cars of the era, it is named after a wind, Bora being the wind of Trieste.
564 Boras were produced in total, 275 were fitted with 4.9L engines and the other 289 were fitted with a 4.7L. A US smog-qualified 4.9-litre engine was used starting with 1973 deliveries. The 4.7 L V8 produces 310 hp at 6,000 rpm and 325 lb⋅ft of torque at 4,200 rpm.

They were fed by four 42 DCNF/14 downdraught Weber carburetors with Bosch electronic ignition.
This rare RHD example had an extensive restoration and is finished in Rosso Fuoco over Bianco leather. It made $175k.
