Maserati Merak SS
Finance and Part exchange available
An alternative to the Maserati Bora MAD Automotives are pleased to show our Maserati Merak SS an original Giugiaro design this classic is making a huge comeback. This unique SS model didn’t make its appearance until 1976 with its different looks it is sure to show off pure Maserati DNA.
The Merak SS is becoming a very rare and sought after car. Only 1000 SS models were built world wide. This example is an original UK supplied RHD car.
The Merak’s dramatic looks were also a major talking point. Sharing the front body design of the Bora, the extended fastback rear window of the bigger Bora was removed to reduce weight and lower the cost, and Giugiaro replaced it with a truncated cabin and rear window that was then augmented with C-pillar buttresses that carried the original fastback line rearward. From the side view, the design feature concealed the Merak’s flat, horizontal engine bonnet, which was more pedestrian looking than the Bora’s big glass rear.
Meanwhile, the steel platform chassis was supported on the rear with a tubular subframe with independent telescopic shocks on all four corners. Braking came courtesy of front and rear discs with calipers that were powered by a hydraulic braking system, which was also employed to operate the flip-up headlights. Campagnolo wheels, a typical performance indicator of the era, completed the look.
This vehicle is currently under part restoration and being prepared for a sale a truly great car perfect for a collection or for much more frequent driving!
