Built on 12 July 1972, this Bora was one of 289 examples that were powered by the firm’s 4.7-litre V-8 engine. The Giugiaro-designed bodywork was finished in Argento Indianapolis over a Nero hide interior. Destined for the French market and dealer Thépenier, this Maserati was first registered on 26 October 1972 by Cecico Equipment CEO, Robert Augier in Paris. In July 1984, the car entered the care of the fifth owner. Residing in Chaumont, he sold the Maserati to Bernard Bablon on 25 November 1986. Based in Paris, Bablon remained the sole custodian from 1986 until 2007, when the Bora entered a private Italian collection. It is thought Bablon had the colour changed to its current Giallo finish. In 2014, the Maserati was sold at auction to an Italian dealer, who later sold the car to the consigning owner in May 2015. While in their care, more than €6,000-worth of maintenance was carried out by Kubicki Motors of Munich, including the repair and installation of the steering rack, a carburettor rebuild, and brake system maintenance. An often-overlooked model, the 4.7-litre Bora represents the very best of early 1970s Italian car design.
