This Sebring Prototype was first presented at the 1961 Torino Automobile Show. Later, it was Maserati's show car at the 1962 Paris Automobile Show. The car was restored and repainted with a new interior several years ago. The current owner rebuilt the engine and had a bare metal re-spray.
There were two Maserati Sebring Prototypes built, which reflected styling cues for the Sebring I Series and Series II. This car was designed by Vignale. The styling lines more reflect the Series II Sebring production line.
