As with the Tipo AM115 Ghibli Giorgetto Giugiaro was responsible for styling the Maserati Coupé although he was no longer working for Ghia, a company which had long since been acquired by Ford, but instead ItalDesign.
The Coupé is powered by a 385hp 4244 cc / 259 cui Ferrari / Maserati F136 R V8 that in this particular vehicle powers the rear wheels through a paddle shift ‘Cambiocorsa’ electrohydraulic manual transmission, instead of the regular 6 speed gear box.
Reaching 110 mph in a 13.2 second sprint from rest over a 1/4 mile the Coupé, unofficially also known as the 4200 GT, is capable of coming to a complete stop from 70 mph in just 163 feet.
