Maserati Bora

www.supercars.net
A racing version of the Bora was developed in 1973 following the French importer Thepenier’s request to compete in Group Four, but at that time – and after extracting over 430 hp from the car – Maserati could not reach the production figure of 500 cars required to obtain its homologation.
Powered by Maserati’s proven 90° V8, the Bora was a true supercar which promised 170 mph performance.
