Maserati – The Road Cars 1981-1997. By John Price Williams.
The V6-powered Biturbo was launched by Maserati in 1981 as a mid-sized luxury sports car. This “reasonably priced” smart two-door was planned to be the car that would propel Maserati into the 1980s, and financial good health, with style. It never quite achieved this, but the Biturbo was and remains a popular car with lovers of Italian machinery.
The Biturbo, so-called because of its twin turbochargers, was in time joined by other Maseratis using the same engines and other common components, including the Spyder, Shamal and Ghibli II. This book by motoring historian John Price Williams tells the story of all these cars, and also the Quattroporte saloon. Full production details are included, along with numerous photographs of the cars, from the launch of the first Biturbo to the end of production of the last of the Biturbo family in 1997.
