For sale is a pristine example of the Maserati Ghibli GT. This 1999 late model is presented in Blu Nettuno with Pelle Rosso interior. Producing 284 BHP from its 2.8 V6 Twin Turbo Unit, mated to the 4 speed automatic gearbox, it is the penultimate RHD car of 236 RHD Ghiblis produced. The car was sold when new by Glenvarigill Maserati Edinburgh to the first keeper and again to Mr Hemingway at 18,243 miles in October 2001. In 2005 at 65340 miles the car was purchased by Mr Colton who in 2006 had works carried out on the car at McGrath Maserati totalling £12462 to include engine works (cylinder heads overhauled, new pistons, liners, main bearings, timing chains etc). The car was maintained by McGraths until he sold the car in 2015. Since then it has been owned by two Maserati Club members whom I know personally who have significantly improved the car.
It has had the following work carried out to ensure the car is in impeccable condition:
Both subframes removed and cleaned and powder coated
Full suspension rebuild
Reconditioned differential and seals
New OEM rear control arms
New OEM front control arms
New OEM exhaust backboxes
New front and rear ARB bushes
Dinitrol underside protection, the car has no rust whatsoever and has never had a weld
All bolts replaced and copper-slipped
4 x Powder Coated wheel refurbs
4 x Michelin Pilot Sport 4’s
4 x new OEM Centre Caps
Cambelt change and service
The car drives wonderfully as it has been maintained by renowned specialists throughout its life. The drive is greatly improved by this year’s suspension rebuild, it has also had four wheel alignment completed.
Accompanying the car is a huge history file and all keys, service receipts etc are with the car. Please do not hesitate to ask should you require any further information. For those that follow the market closely, you may have seen that the car was sold only a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen change of circumstances for the buyer, the sale will not be completed now. We have not added a keeper to the V5, and the car has been nowhere, still sitting in our showroom under cover on a trickle charger. So buyers now have a second chance to buy what has to be one of, if not the best Ghibli GT currently available in the whole of Europe.
