Maserati - Maserati Bora

The Maserati Bora was the first mid engined sportscar made by Maserati, introduced in 1971. Whereas the Khamsin that was offered shortly afterwards was a traditionally Maserati front engined car, the Bora was shown as the companies more modern offering in line with sports cars such as the mid engined Muira. Maserati was now owned by Citroen and used a host of its hudraulic suspension and steering technology. With bodywork penned by Giugaro, the car was very practical in that it had decent luggage room and easy to get in and out of. The Boras engine capacity was the 4.7 litres but later it was stroked to 4.7 litre, with the V8 finally ending up at 4.9 litres. The Bora had a steel moncoque chassis with all independent suspension (a Maserati first). After Citroen sold it's interest in Maserati, it was taken over in 1975 by the Italian government and De Tomas and the Bora was discontinued in 1978.

Maserati Bora tyre size was originally 215/70VR15 to all corners. But we have noted that many outfits quote the smaller 205/70VR15 size to fit on the front wheels (or even all around), but from what we have checked the the Bora was fitted by the factory with the taller and wider 215/70VR15 tyre size to all four corners. For the owners who prefer to fit the smaller 205/70-15 size to the front, Blockley produce both these high speed rated tyre sizes.
