Engine/Mechanical Component Photos
The 3500 GTi and the 3500 GTis were introduced in 1961 as the first fuel-injected Italian production car. It had a Lucas fuel injection system, two spark plugs per cylinder, and generated 235 horsepower. A 5-speed ZF S5-17 gearbox was now standard (3.02:1, 1.85:1, 1.29:1, 1:1, 0.85:1), as well as disc brakes all around. The body had a lowered roofline and became somewhat longer; minor outward changes appeared as well (new grille, rear lights, vent windows).
This vehicle has a 98-inch wheelbase and a five-speed manual transmission. It creates 230 horsepower at 5500 rpm and reaches a top speed of 148 mph. This car has had a complete restoration focusing on the paint, interior of the car and mechanicals. It was sold new in Switzerland and imported to the United States in the 1970s. A complete cosmetic and mechanical restoration was completed in 2007. It is one of three cars fitted at the factory with side exhausts.
Chief engineer Giulio Alifieri built the six-cylinder Maserati 3500 GTI coupe, which features an aluminum body over Carrozeria Touring's superleggera structure.
Options on this 3500 GTI include factory side exhaust, Borrani alloy wheels, reclining passenger seat with headrest and Blaupunkt radio. The car was sold new in Sweden and brought to the United States in the 1970's. A recent total restoration was completed over a two year period.
