About the Maserati Sebring 3500 GTi:
The Series 1 Maserati Sebring was first shown in 1962 at the Salon International de l’Auto, aimed at taking a slice of the American ‘Gran Turismo’ market.
This sector was for luxury cars capable of long distance driving, and emerged in the post-war years in America. The Gran Turismo format evolved from fast touring cars and streamlined closed sports cars during the 1930s.
During the 1950s cars in this category included the 1951 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT, 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL and 1956 Ferrari 250 GT.
The Aston Martin DB5, Mercedes-Benz 300SL and Jaguar XK120 all saw success within this sector and bolstered the market for others to enter and compete.
The GTi name meant Gran Turismo Iniezione, or Grand Tourer Injection. The 1961 Maserati 3500 GTi was the first car to ever wear this now iconic name.
Enjoying around 230bhp and a top speed of 137mph from a 3,694 cc inline six cylinder engine, the Maserati Sebring 3500 GTi epitomises the grand tourer ethos, being both beautiful and capable and crucially, Italian!
