Maserati Biturbo (1981-1994) specifications

The Maserati Biturbo represented the start of a more sensible, and turbocharged, era for the company


Maserati model development took a new direction in 1981. The supercar market was surrendered to Ferrari and Lamborghini as the company chased volume with its new BMW 3-Series-rivalling Biturbo. At the heart of the new car was an elegant new four-cam V6 of either 2.0 or 2.5 litres, its output boosted by a brace of turbos. The interior was plush – and its centrepiece clock was a real novelty. The Biturbo made for a left-field alternative to a BMW 323i, although big sales were never forthcoming. The four-door 425 was introduced in 1983. Prices for the best are edging slowly upwards.
