1989 Maserati Spyder

Zagato of Milan, Italy handled the design and assembly of the Spyder BiTurbo. This was Zagato's first work for Maserati in three decades with the A6G/2000. The Spyder rested on a wheelbase that measured 7.9 feet and was around 4 inches shorter than the coupes. The first Spyder made its debut in 1984 at the Turin Motor Show.

The Spyder was a modern vehicle fitted with many luxuries and offered great road handling, and a reliable chassis. The 1989 Spyder was powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine displacing 2790cc and offering 225 horsepower. It had an electronic fuel injection system and mated to a ZF five-speed manual transmission. They had power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, and power door locks. In the front was Maserati's traditional trident emblem flanked by quad rectangular headlamps. The trident could also be found at the rear of the car and on the hubs of its alloy wheels.

The interior featured burled Carpathian elm wood on the doors, console, gearshift, handbrake handle, and dashboard. The upholstery was finished in smooth or suede leather.
The former BiTurbo designation was no longer used for the model name. The 2+2 convertible had a base price of $45,000.
