The Maserati Biturbo Spyder offers a slice of bargain Italian style, but it's not without issues
Maserati chopped the roof off the Biturbo coupe to create this stylish four-seater convertible. Like the tin-topped versions, it wasn’t without issues and, as well as suffering from niggling build and quality shortcomings, premature corrosion was a very real problem. Image and prices dropped massively in a short time, and they've never really recovered. Despite low classic values, there’s a real sense of the exotic when it comes to keeping a Biturbo on the road, and restoration costs can be horrifying – especially if the engine needs major work.
