Designed by arguably one of the greatest Italian designers of all time, Giorgetto Giugiaro. The Maserati Merak was the successor to the Maserati boara and when introduced at the 1972 Paris motor show it immediately stole the hearts of many!

This specific Merak has a very special owner. Its current owner is Formula 1’s, Niki Lauda’s F1 mechanic who worked for Ferrari and Mclaren. The car has been with the same owner for the last 30 years and understandably, has been kept in pristine condition as the owner has not let any other mechanics do any mechanical work on the car. The current owner is the 4th owner of the car as well as the longest holder of the car out of all the owners.

This explains why the car has no service history as it has been maintained and serviced by the owner. The owner also performed a full paintwork restoration (the original colour is navy) on the car using lead filled paint which has created an immaculate finish showing no signs of its age by any means! The quality of the brilliant paintwork is perfect and totally free from any stone chips. The cars’ authentic interior is in remarkably great condition and as you can see from the photos the interior is immaculate with all of the dials, buttons and leavers working. The fully intact and original underbody shows no sign of rust formation. Having always been extremely well maintained, this car is in great working order.

Showing no signs of fault nor wear. The cream leather interior is as standard from the day it came off the conveyor belt with Its current mileage sitting at 49,000.

There are only a handful of RHD versions of this car with the level of care and detail that this car possesses, making it a truly unique car to own and enjoy. The 3 litre V6 engine was rated at 190 PS (140 kW; 187 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 255 N⋅m (188 lb⋅ft) of torque at 4,000 rpm. Three twin-choke Weber carburetors (one 42 DCNF 31 and two 42 DCNF 32) fed the engine, and the compression ratio was 8.75:1. Maserati declared a top speed of over 240 km/h (149 mph). All tyres and alloys are fantastic on this car and have plenty of life left in them. If well looked after this car would make a fabulous investment piece

In conclusion, this is a very special car with great history that is sure to make the right owner smile every time they turn that key.
