1972 Maserati Bora 4.7 | $1.5M HKD


Thanks to the Legendary designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Bora is one of those cars that looks fast even when it is standing still.

The Bora was introduced in 1971 with a 4.7 litre engine, as this example sports. With styling by Guigiaro at Italdesign it was very much Maserati's offering to take on Ferrari into the 1970s. The sleek look and 170 mph + performance found no shortage of buyers and a slight upgrade was made in 1973 with an extra 200cc of engine capacity. Some 564 were produced in total before the model was phased out in 1978. Many enthusiasts of the marque view the Bora as the ultimate Maserati in terms of performance and handling and style. The five speed transmission is the race-proven and dependable ZF, which the Bora has in common with the multi Le Mans winning Ford GT-40, DeTomasso Pantera and even the BMW M1.

The example offered here is a remarkably well historied machine. It was supplied to the UK when brand new, but also lived and enjoyed on the roads here in Hong Kong. This Bora has been no mere show piece! It has taken part in the 1985 Macau Supercar Cup in the hands of Jimmy Yee. Later it was bought by a notable and high profile ex-pat British business man who added the car to his personal collection of over 100 motor cars in the United Kingdom. The Bora resided there, living a life of pampered luxury for many years until it was tracked down and re-imported to Hong Kong, the attraction being that it was an original Hong Kong registered car. This Bora was recently treated to a full reconditioning by the authorised Maserati dealership here in Hong Kong. With only 47 of these cars produced in right hand drive this is the rarest of Bora specifications and with prices rising globally, this just has to be the right moment to treat yourself to arguably the defining super car experience.
