Maserati Made Even More Special

Fri, 15 Jun 2001
A special Assetto Corsa version of the fabulous 175mph Maserati 3200 GT coupe has arrived in the UK.

Just 75 right hand drive Assetto Corsas are being built for UK customers. The car features steering, handling and braking enhancements over the standard 175mph 3200GT. It is available in a choice of three colours: Rosso Mondiale (red), Grigio Touring (grey) and Nero Carbonio (black).

The handling package includes variable electronic suspension, stiffer springs, a larger diameter anti-roll bar and suspension that is lowered by around 15 mm. It is supplied with special 15-spoke alloy wheels: 8 x 18 at the front and 9.5 x 18 at the rear, shod with soft mix Pirelli P Zero Corse tyres: 235/40ZR at the front and 265/35ZR at the rear.

Racing formula brake pads and modified brake servo settings deliver faster braking responses. The brake callipers are finished in red and the air ducts to the braking system are constructed from a special carbon fibre/nylon mix to reduce weight. Steering response is made more precise due to a modified steering rack.

Inside the car are racing-style pedals and sill plates engraved with Assetto Corsa and the series number of the vehicle. The limited edition theme continues with black leather trim, red seat piping, black carpets and special Carbon fibre trim.

Prices for the Maserati 3200GT Assetto Corsa are £65,950 for the six-speed manual version and £67,950 for the four-speed automatic. This is £5,000 more than the 3200GT but still good value for a 175mph car with the Maserati pedigree and the most wonderful engine note you can buy today. A peace-of-mind support package for customers includes a three-year/60,000-mile manufacturer warranty, fixed priced servicing costs, specific Maserati insurance cover available through Marsh Private Clients and a range of funding options available through Maranello Financial Services.
