Hello and thank you for visiting my auction,

I have up for sale a rare 1983 Maserati Quattorporte ( 200 made) that is a true sleeper car with a little something extra under the hood. Keep in mind this is not for the purist and I do appreciate a Concur original restored car, ut rarely are these seen roadable with the original motor. This has been an enjoyable exotic family car, nd offers the best of all worlds. Car gets appreciation from enthusiasts, nbsp;the Concourse Italiano, ocal hotrod shows, nd modern euro coffee meets. This was purchased for a weekend car for the family to ride in style to local car events, nd to act as a spare for when down a car. It can accommodate five adults comfortably in the Lazy-Boy like original Italian leather covered seats. I feel confident in its reliability, nd although the car has never met AAA, eep in mind being 35 years old, his is not a late model Honda.

This unusually striking color combo and the factory ride height from Italy, eally accentuate the lines of the car and bring it to a new level of attraction. If you have never seen one of these in person, hey are prominent cars with chiseled Giorgetto Giugiaro styling, nd polished stainless steel moldings and bumpers ( no chrome).

From collected research, his car was created for a stereo shop by a team of renowned builders in Southern California for Sema. It has a built 302ci 5.0 Supper Charged engine by Kenne Bell, ith a nicely matched auto built tranny. HP estimates at 450HP. Car will easily break loose both its 11 inch wide tires at a rolling stop all the way down the street and chirps through 2nd, rd.

There are two sets of wheels included. The first are the original factory Magnesium Campagnolo wheels, hich are currently mounted on the car. The second set are custom built, piece Enkei wheels. Not my taste, ut these wheels do look nicer in person with the 3 inch deep lip.

People will recognize the whine from modestly loud supercharged v8 sound without that motorboat dissonance, nbsp;produces smiles and dirty looks all at the same time. Lots of effort and engineering went into this car to make it right. This is evident with the way the car drives. A healthy stack of literature comes with the car including original sales tag brochures, nd another nice stack documenting the conversion with a no expense spared budget. For California buyers, have taken this to the ref, nd fortunately the car’s engine and supercharger are Carb tagged, nd with very little work will pass smog. This includes replacing the OEM exhaust or CARB similar, ntake elbow, heck engine light. The ref printed out the diagram for CEL, nd will be included. All documentation for what was needed at the appointment will go to CA buyers. The ref ran an emissions test on the exhaust which he said would pass no problem. This was my next step, ut too many cars with limited time, nd need the room for other toys
