Introduced in 1972, the Maserati Merak followed the Maserati Bora launched the previous year. The Bora was fitted with a V8, while the Merak was powered by a smaller and lighter V6, which gave space for an extra row of seats in the back. The Bora’s production run ended in 1980, while the Merak was offered until 1983. Early models were fitted with Citroen partsespecially hydraulic systems, replaced by more conventional systems when De Tomaso took over Maserati. Later models offered better handling thanks to wider wheels and tires and a chin spoiler increased high-speed stability. The engine of the 1983 Maserati Merak was tuned to offer additional powerfrom 190 hp to 220 hp. From 1976, a variant called SS was offered, with a more potent engine and a recognizable black front grille. By 1983, 1,000 units of the SS had been produced.
Only 1699 units of the standard 3-liter Maserati Merak were built throughout the production run, and 133 copies of the 2-liter car were made.
