In 1997, Ferrari bought a controlling share of Maserati from Fiat. After the purchase, Ferrari and Maserati collaborated on the design of a grand touring car to put Maserati back on the map. The result was the Maserati 4200 GT. It used a 4.2-liter V8 (the same engine used in the Ferrari 360 Modena) producing 385 hp and 333 lb-ft. Critics generally welcomed the car as a sign that Maserati was turning things around.
A 2002 Maserati 4200 GT Coupe Cambriocorsa is for sale on eBay motors with a “buy it now” price of $25,750. Cambriocorsa designates the car’s paddle shift transmission, which was criticized as being clunky at low speeds by several news outlets. Despite this, the Maserati accelerates from a standstill to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, and has a top speed of approximately 175 mph.
This Maserati has only 29,207 miles on it and is finished in a dark silver exterior, with a black leather interior. Both the exterior and interior seem to be in good shape.
For a little over $25K, this is a good deal for a car with an engine developed by Ferrari, room for four, and handsome Italian bodywork, not to mention a chrome trident.
