Maserati Bora 4.7 – 1971-1978: As stated earlier, Bora was the very first mid-engine two-seat road car by Maserati. It’s powered by the company’s proven 4.7 liters 90 degrees V8 engine. It’s a true supercar that completely maintains the Maserati’s primary ethos of refinement, comfort, and class. The critical acclaim that Maserati Bora received and still continue to receive speak for the power and performance that it delivers.
Giorgetto Giugiaro style Maserati Bora model in his Italdesign studio that was preferred over Pietro Frua’s mockup. The models that Italdesign provided greatly encapsulated the modern and trending design. Additionally, it was also harmonious with the other cars of the same range. Officine Padane produced the body for Maserati Bora in Modena with the five-speed ZF gearbox. Moreover, as the Maserati was working under the umbrella of a French company Citroen, it also had some of the French manufacturer’s parts such as adjustable pedal block, driver seat, pop-up headlamps, and hydraulics for brake operations. It came with 310 hp (300 hp for America) with a top speed of 162 miles per hour.
Maserati Bora 4.9 – 1974-1978: In 1974 Maserati launched another variant of Maserati Bora with a 4.9 liter, 310 hp v8 engine. It offered a top speed of 171 miles per hour. In the period of eight years, Maserati manufactured 564 Boras, and about half of them came in the 4.9 guises. Moreover, Maserati also produced a racing variant of Bora in 1973 with 430 hp when Thepenier, a French importer, requested. Later in 1978, Maserati stopped Bora's production because of the tax restriction bill and oil crises that mitigated the high-performance car market.
