Maserati - Maserati Sebring

While the popular 3500GT model was in production, Maserati decided to build a 2+2 model which was called the Maserati Sebring, or Maserati 3500GTiS , which was first shown in 1962 and finalised in 1963. The Maserati Sebring had the same 6 cylinder 3485cc Alfieri engine but the Sebring engines were all fuel injected as standard - a feature that had also been used on the later 3500GT's. Bodywork was the work of Alfredo Vignale who had been responsible for the earlier 3500GT Spyder, and it was this same shorter 3500GT chassis that was used as the basis for Vignales 2+2 design. Like his earlier Spyder, the bodywork was produced in steel, using alloy only for the bonnet and boot lids.

Originally the engine was the same 3485cc for the Sebring but for 1964 a larger 3.7 litre (3694cc) was now the standard engine size. For 1965 the Maserati 4000GTiS (S for Sebring) the car was given a 4 litre engine (4014cc) and a revised update with so many changes yet still recogniseable as a Sebring, with vertical rear lights, slightly altered grille, bumper and lamps. This was the last fling of the straight 6 Alfieri designed engine. Production of the Sebring carried on until 1967.

Tyre size for the Maserati Sebring. The earlier Sebring models had 16" wheels with tyre size 185VR16 . The later Sebrings had 15" wheels with 205R15 size, but when a later lower profile and better handling 215/70VR15 tyre size was available, the 215/70VR15 became many owners preference. Blockley produce both 185VR16 and 215/70VR15 tyre sizes, which have high speed rating, steel bet construction and period correct tread pattern which will transform the handling - see full details of either of these tyres below:
