This car was imported by Thepenier Maserati and would be the last Maserati Sebring imported to France. The original sales invoice from delivery to its first French owner accompanies the car. It has only had three caretakers since new. Recently, a comprehensive engine rebuild was completed in 2017 by Performance Plus in Longnes, and a complete overhaul of the fuel injection system was done by specialists at Power Props.

A highly original car, including interior, this rare car possesses a striking color scheme while maintaining a lovely patina. With recent and substantial mechanical work completed, this rare and desirable, matching-numbers Series II Sebring is a highly usable Maserati ready to be enjoyed.

The Maserati Sebring was named after the brand’s victory in the Sebring 12 Hours in 1957. This rare and sought-after Sebring Series II is one of the most charismatic GTs of its era.

It is estimated that no more than 446 Sebring coupes were produced between 1962 and 1969, including 348 Series I and 98 models of the rarer Series II Tipo AM101 / 10 (exact numbers vary depending on the source). A 3.7-liter in-line six-cylinder with double overhead camshaft, double ignition and Lucas petrol injection was used as the drive, the output was 245 hp. The 4000 GTi had a 4,023 cc engine that produced 252 hp at 5,200 rpm. Towards the end of the construction period, the power was increased again, now to 261 hp.

This car was imported to France by Thepenier Maserati and is the last Serbing newly imported to France. The documents for this vehicle also include the original invoice for delivery to the first of a total of three owners. In 2017, Performance Plus carried out an extensive gearbox overhaul in Longnes, while Power Props revised the gasoline injection.
