Harking back to legendary spyders such as the 3500, Mistral and Ghibli, the latest ragtop to wear the Trident badge was simply known as the Spyder when launched in September 2001.  Based on the Giorgetto Giugiaro styled 3200, the model that single-handedly restored the fortunes of the famous Modenese marque, the Spyder was powered by an all-alloy 4244cc V8 that weighed significantly less than the 3200’s turbocharged motor, with an even higher specific output of 390 bhp at 7000 rpm and a maximum torque figure of 451 Nm.  The first naturally aspirated Maserati since the introduction of the long-running Biturbo series in 1982, the Spyder was based on a shortened version of the 3200’s platform, with a restyled body that was strictly a two-seater, featuring twin roll bars to protect the passengers and a neatly hidden convertible hood.  In addition to the standard six-speed manual transmission, Maserati offered a 6-speed Cambiocorsa electro-hydraulic unit with four settings: Normal, Sport, Automatic and Ice for low grip situations.  Other notable features included a new Skyhook automatic damper suspension system, while the long list of luxury features included electric memory seats, an integrated Infocentre in the centre console with a 5.8-inch display for the sat-nav, CD sound system and climate control, 18-inch alloy rims.  The Maserati’s quad-cam V8 provides not only a sonorous soundtrack, but delivers stunning performance, with 0-100 time reached in five seconds flat, on the way to a top speed of 283 km/h.  These fabulous Italian sports cars now offer outstanding value for money, combining sexy good looks, performance and equipment levels with the famous Maserati badge.
