Maserati Merak


The Merak was Maserati’s answer to the oil crisis, which affected the sales of cars with large-displacement engines. The original Merak started production in 1972 but was left wanting so in 1976 Materati started producing the Merak SS with was a lighter and more powerful version of the glorious 2+2.

Giorgetto Giugiaro had brilliantly adapted the Bora’s styling for the 2+2 Merak, with a flat rear deck and (removable) flying buttresses instead of the sloping screen. The quad-cam V6 3.0 was superb with great mid-engined handling plus a big front boot, the Merak was a practical supercar that was quiet and comfortable.

Our rare RHD Manufactured Merak was built on November 4th 1981. A UK supplied RHD car first registered in March 1983 and has been finished in its lovely original colours of Rosso Rubino paint and Fungo interior. A 43,000 mile car that still retains its matching original engine and gearbox.

Mechanically, this car is spot on. Having had an engine rebuild from legendary specialists McGrath Maserati in recent years along with considerable maintenance by her current custodian including an engine out service to cure all oil leaks, an exhaust system, alternator and carburetor rebuild.

The car has a very good history file featuring a detailed record of previous owners.

The interior is very much the same scenario. The leather has a light patanina and has been re conolised by ourselves rather than re dyed to stay in keeping with the cars age. All dials work as they should along with all toggle switches and heating system.

As for the beautiful Giugario bodywork the Rossi Rubino paint is in lovely condition also. Having been painted some time ago, the paint still holds a deep lustre along with excellent gaps and shut lines.

Presented in rare RHD format this is a unique opportunity to acquire a Merak SS in ready to use condition in as desirable colour combination as one could argue.

Viewing strictly by appointment. All cars supplied with valid NCT where appropriate.
