This beautiful 1977 example of the lighter, more powerful "SS" version of the Maserati Merak was supplied new to Hong Kong in the same year, the car also has air con.
The SS was introduced to enhance the Maserati range and the result is not only a beautiful looking classic, but one that performs with the agility expected of such a car.
Featuring an upgraded V6 engine boasting a 30 HP increase over the earlier version, tweaks included larger carburetors and a higher compression ratio. Working together with a 50 Kg reduction in weight the result is a much sportier, driver-centric car than the original.
A front grille between the pop-up headlights sets the SS version apart from its predecessor, whilst inside, the early dashboard was replaced by a much more 'focused' design drawn from stablemate, the Maserati Bora.
Some minor chassis revisions further improved the car, which could now reach speeds in excess of 150 MPH.
Subject of a near full and documented restoration with aprox £130k here at Aston Workshop including bodywork & chassis, bare metal respray and full engine rebuild, this Italian thoroughbred represents a rare opportunity to own an iconic 70's supercar in stunning condition, the car is very low milage and we believe the milage is correct with 3 owners form new including us.
The SS is not only the rarest, but also the most powerful version of the Merak, and as such it has become increasingly sought after.
