Footnotes

  • 'There is no denying the Biturbo's style and flair reflect the earliest cars to come from Bologna.' – Mark Gillies, Autocar.

    Maserati's mainstream model throughout the 1980s and the first series-production road car to employ a twin turbo-charged engine, the Biturbo debuted in two-door form 1982. Intended to challenge BMW and Mercedes-Benz in the luxury sporting saloon market, the Biturbo was of conventional, front engine/rear drive layout and featured all-independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and an interior boasting sumptuous leather upholstery and plentiful wood veneer trim. The all-steel unitary chassis/body was styled in-house and built by Innocenti, part of the De Tomaso empire like Maserati. ZF five-speed manual and three-speed automatic were the two transmission options initially while a limited-slip differential came as standard. Produced initially with a 2.0-litre, three-valves-per-cylinder V6, the Biturbo gained 2.5-litre, 2.8-litre and 24-valve engines as the model range expanded throughout the 1980s to include four-door saloon and spyder variants.

    A desirable 2.8-litre model, this left-hand drive Biturbo four-door saloon is finished in silver blue with blue leather interior and has the manual transmission option. 'F214 KGH' was purchased new for the Sondes Fields Collection from Meridien Modena, Lyndhurst by the late Howard E Cashin, who gifted it in 2003 to his brother, Joseph Cashin, since deceased. The Maserati was used sparingly while in the Sondes Fields Collection and has covered 71,280 kilometres (approximately 44,200 miles) to date.

    Last used on the road in 2004, it has been started regularly and driven on private roads within the estate since then. The Biturbo has been maintained by the Collection's in-house mechanic, recent works including an annual service and the installation of a new fuel pump. Presented in generally very good condition and driving well, it should require only minimal re-commissioning before returning to regular use. Sold strictly as viewed, the car is offered with an expired MoT (2004) and V5 registration document.
