Delivered new to Slough, this Bora 4.7 was built to RHD specifications, one of only 42 Bora 4.7s to be outfitted as such. It was produced by the factory on 23 August 1972 finished in Blu Ischia over a Senape (tan) interior according to information on file supplied by Maserati Classiche. While not much is known about the car’s history, it is believed that it remained in the UK for the vast majority of its life before being acquired by the current owner from Edwin Faulkner in December of 2005 and subsequently imported to Australia.
After a few years of use down under, the car was returned to the UK and sent to McGrath Maserati for a full restoration. Completed in 2016 after three years of work, the car has remained here ever since and has continued to be regularly maintained by McGrath Maserati, with the last service being undertaken in October of 2017. Accompanying the car are receipts for all restoration and service work done with the current owner.
Offering the perfect combination of performance, refinement and usability, the Bora is an eccentric grand tourer from a fascinating time in Maserati’s history. Thanks to their rarity, especially in RHD, Boras have become quite collectable in recent years, and finding a well-kept example can be difficult. Well restored by a respected UK-based specialist and ready to drive and enjoy, this Bora warrants serious consideration.
