1971-1978 MASERATI Bora specifications Classic and Performance Car

Considering it was a relative latecomer to the mid-engined supercar club (although it beat the Ferrari BB to the market by two years), the Maserati Bora established itself as a front-runner in the fast club. Like the Ghibli, the Bora was styled by Giugiaro, who had by now gone it alone to form Ital Design, but the design studio had also devised the all-new steel unitary construction underneath it. The Bora was fitted with the Indy V8 in 4.7- and 4.9-litre form. As part of its association with Citroën, high pressure hydraulics powered the brakes and steering.
