Introduced in 1957, the Maserati 3500 was a big step for the brand, as the first volume production road car. The first road Maserati was the A6, built in 1946 with a 1.5-liter, 65 hp engine. Capable of 150 hp, the Maserati 3500 was a real sports car. Its 3.5-liter, 6-cylinder, twin cam engine was a detuned version of the racing unit and linked to a new standard five-speed gearbox; the car offered a particularly enjoyable driving experience. In addition, Lucas mechanical fuel injection replaced the Weber carburetors in 1961, adding 15 hp and a GTI badge to the Maserati 3500. Design-wise, the Maserati 3500 was a big hit. Its elegant demeanor made it very desirable for owners who wanted the enjoyment of driving a highly powerful GT without the showiness of a Ferrari.
Available as a Touring-designed 2+2 coupe or as a Vignale-penned convertible, the Maserati 3500 was the perfect balance of modern classiness and understated self-assurance.
