Maserati Bora

at the Domenico Spadaro Memorial RallyThe first cars were designed like true horseless carriages. 

 

In terms of design, there was a distinct segment for the engine, a distinct segment for the passengers, and a distinct segment for the luggage. These early cars were upright, they did little to hide away the mechanical components that made them work. The wheels jutted out, the headlights jutted out, the suspension was visible, and even the engines were sometimes exposed.

The Maserati Bora feels like the farthest car design ever got from that segmented, mechanical, early era. Everything mechanical is hidden from view and the whole body is a single, fluid, aerodynamic shape.

No surprise it came from the ’70s – this thing looks like a space pod.

    I just want to add that the front end on the Bora is so painfully perfect I can’t stand it.

    How are they selling in England&Europe, I live in Perth Western Australia and by the time information gets here its usually been embellished somewhat. I have heard that the market has moved up significantly in the last 2 years? My car is a RHD are they worth more?
