Vehicle Overview

The Maserati 3500 GT Bertone represents a fascinating transition from the era of large-scale production to a bespoke, one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Following the success of models like the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Maserati ventured into new territory with the 3500 GT Coupé, a car that would redefine luxury and performance in the automotive world. Designed by the legendary Franco Scaglione, who also worked on the Aston Martin DB2/4, the 3500 GT Bertone received an overwhelmingly positive response when it debuted at international shows. Drawing inspiration from the futuristic B.A.T. project while incorporating unique stylistic elements, this prototype showcased a bold departure from convention. Built on chassis 101.0666, the 3500 GT Bertone prototype featured a distinctive design language characterized by its forward-leaning center of gravity and sleek, tapered lines. The deep ridge linking the rear to the front bonnet created an imposingly long profile, accentuating the car’s dynamic presence on the road. Under the hood, the Maserati 3500 GT Bertone boasted a formidable six-cylinder engine, generating 260 horsepower from its 3485 cc displacement. With a top speed of 230 km/h, this powerhouse ensured exhilarating performance matched only by its stunning aesthetics. The unveiling of the Maserati 3500 GT Bertone at the Turin Auto Salon in 1959 marked a significant moment in automotive history, signaling Maserati’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of design and engineering. Decades later, this iconic prototype continues to captivate enthusiasts, earning a prestigious spot at the 2023 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The 3500 GT Bertone stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of innovation and excellence that defines the Maserati brand. Its timeless design and exhilarating performance serve as a reminder of the passion and craftsmanship that went into its creation, ensuring its place in automotive history for generations to come.
