1965 Maserati Sebring 3500 GTi Series II

Coachwork by Carrozzeria Vignale

The Maserati Sebring, launched in 1962, was a luxurious 2+2 coupe based on the successful 3500GT. It marked Maserati’s shift from racing to focus on road cars due to financial difficulties.

The 3500GT, designed by Giulio Alfieri, had a powerful engine and impressive handling derived from Maserati’s racing experience. Several Italian design houses created bodies for the 3500GT, with Vignale crafting most of the less common Spyder version.

The Sebring, built on the Spyder’s chassis and styled by Vignale, arrived in 1962. It came standard with a 5-speed gearbox, disc brakes, and fuel injection, offering options like automatic transmission and air conditioning.

A Series II update in 1965 brought a redesigned exterior and larger tires. Production ended in 1969 with a total of 591 Sebrings built, solidifying its place as a luxurious and powerful Italian grand tourer.
