Maserati 3200GT (1998-2002) specifications

The Maserati 3200GT represented the start of a new era for the Italian company


In 1998, Maserati was reinvented. After becoming part of the Fiat Group, finances were finally poured into the once-great marque’s development, as it sought a new identity within the group alongside Ferrari. First fruit was the 3200GT in late 1998. With a name that harked back to the classic 3500GT, striking styling by Giugiaro’s Italdesign, a twin-turbo 370bhp V8 (a revised version of the unit from the Shamal and QP IV) offering 170mph+, and four proper seats plus a decent boot, the 3200GT was warmly welcomed.

With the 3200GT, Maserati was repositioned below the Scuderia, to take on cars such as the Jaguar XK and BMW 6-Series. Despite being slightly rough around the edges, the 3200GT was a great success, and has sired a generation of successors that have turned around the marque’s fortunes completely. Slowly rising in value, but buy carefully via specialists, as big bills lie in wait for the unwary.
