The Bora was built by the Italian automaker Maserati between the years of 1971 and 1978. It was a grand tourer that represented market class “S” (sport) cars. It was a fastback 2-door sports coupe with an aggressive stance and lots of sharp angles.
Bora cars were equipped with variety of engines between 4719-4931 cc, or 288.2-301.1 cubic inches displacement, with an output of 209-235 kW (284-320 PS, 280-315 hp) of power. The mid-set V8 engine could propel this angular looking fastback to a top speed was up to 174 mph. It was considered a supercar of its day.
The 2-door coupe from 1978 used RWD (rear-wheel drive) and a manual 5-speed transmission. It had a petrol (gasoline) engine with displacement of 4719 cm3 or 288.2 cubic inches, advertised power: 228 kW / 306 hp / 310 PS, and torque of 461 Nm / 340 lb-ft. Top speed was 280 km/h, or 174 mph, as declared by the factory. It performed well for a vehicle of its class. Maserati claimed it had a 0-60 mph time of just 6.1 seconds and a 0-100 km/h time of 6.5 seconds. The 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) was 14.2 seconds.
Later Maserati used the Bora as the basis for the Merak model, using the body with only minor changes, to accommodate a 2+2 seating arrangement. The later car used a less powerful V6 engine. Only 524 Boras were built throughout the production run. Very few of these attractive and powerful cars still exist, making them set for great valuation potential over the coming years.
