This 2-door coupe and convertible was Maserati’s first model of a long line of successful grand touring vehicles. Following the low-production Maserati A6, the 3500 was a large volume production in comparison. With its subtle elegance and expensive price tag, the Maserati 3500 was an elite’s sports car. Maserati’s success in the racing field made the brand quite popular at the time and their road car became one of the top GT models on the market, matching Ferrari’s prestige and performance for the first time. The design was simple, elegant and maintained its unshakable classiness throughout the years. Altogether, the Maserati 3500 was a good blend of power, good handling, and an excellent driving experience. Buyers had the choice between the convertible model designed by Vignale or Turin and built on a shorter wheelbase, or the coupe 2+2 from Touring of Milan.
The Maserati 3500 was a big step forward for Maserati in the road car development. Very much centered on racing at the time, the brand launched its first production car in 1947 with a 65 hp engine. It was not long before Maserati released the first 3500 in 1957 and offered a 235 hp output (for the fuel-injected model).
