Maserati introduced its Tipo 117 Bora in 1971 at the Geneva Motor Show and was the company's first and only mid-engine V8 supercar. Giorgetto Giugiaro's nascent design firm, Italdesign, had been commissioned to develop this new genre of Maserati, and it was bestowed elegant styling that was strikingly similar to the BMW M1, Delorean DMC 12, and the DeTomaso Mangusta. Mounted mid-ship was a 4.7-liter alloy V8 backed by a ZF five-speed transaxle. The fully-independent double-wishbone suspension system was designed by Giulio Alfieri, the co-designer of the 250F Formula 1 car.

In 1973, Maserati installed a larger 4.9-liter engine in the bay, with ten additional horsepower than the outgoing 4.7-liter version.

The Maserati Bora was refined, sophisticated, and a Maserati GT car through-and-through, with a carpeted engine bay to reduce engine noise, dual pane glass, a full-sized trunk, a telescoping and movable steering wheel, and many other uncommon supercar features. It was one of the first new models to be released after Citroen gained a controlling interest in Maserati in 1968. Thus, the Bora was endowed with Citroen technology including the hydraulically operated headlights and seat/pedal box adjustments.

This particular Maserati Bora is equipped with a 4,930cc dual overhead camshaft V8 engine breathing through four Weber carburetors and backed by a five-speed ZF manual transmission. There is an Independent suspension system and four-wheel disc brakes. It is finished in Blu Ischia Metallizzato, over a Blu and black Connolly leather interior with black Wilton carpets. It rides on Campagnolo alloy wheels.

It is believed that this vehicle was sent to California when new, and by the early 1990s still remained in California. In 2017, it moved to Florida when it entered the care of new ownership. Prior to the acquisition, the Maserati had received a cosmetic restoration, with further work completed after the purchase in 2017 and 2018. In 2019, it found new ownership and was then treated to a thorough rebuild from the crank up, with the work totaling nearly $49,000. The total amount spent during those three years reached nearly $70,000.
