With the introduction of the Bora, Maserati joined the mid-engine sports car brigade. The Maserati Bora was a civilized grand tourer, with comfortable seating and a well-isolated cabin. The V8 engine was exceptional with a thundering exhaust, yet smooth and easy to maneuver thanks to a precise and long clutch pedal. The hydraulic braking system was also extremely satisfying, with a kickback and quiet hissing response to pressing the pedal. Designed by Giugiaro, the body of the Maserati Bora is very distinguishable thanks to its stainless-steel roof, sharp rear end, and dished chrome hubcaps. Giugiaro’s previous design for the Ghibli was a huge success and the Bora also got a lot of attention from the motoring press and enthusiasts. Road & Track, for one, described the Maserati Bora as strikingly handsome, clean and slightly brutal-looking.
