1963 Maserati Sebring 3500 GTi Series I By Vignale

Initially introduced as a substitute for the flagship Maserati 3500 GTi in 1962, the Maserati Sebring exemplifies the refined style of Italian design prevalent in the mid-20th century. Its name pays homage to the Bolognese manufacturer’s triumphant victory at the 1957 12 Hours of Sebring, while its construction was tailored to the U.S. market’s open roads and smooth highways.

At its core, the Sebring is powered by a 3,485cc inline six-cylinder engine, generating 235 horsepower, and shared with the 3500 GTi. The vehicle can reach a top speed of approximately 140 mph and accelerate to 60 mph in around 8.5 seconds. Despite its impressive performance, the Sebring 3500 GTi is unmistakably a luxurious grand tourer with a spacious “2+2” interior.

Beneath the elegant steel body, an entirely new tubular steel frame provides robust support for the vehicle’s independent dual wishbone front suspension, semi-elliptical rear leaf springs, and four-wheel disc brakes.
