Top performance and top-down driving fun were features of the Biturbo Spyder, the first open Maserati since the Ghibli Spyder more than 12 years earlier. Milanese stylist Zagato handled the design’s development, while the bodies were assembled in Turin before transportation to the Maserati factory in Modena for final assembly. The Biturbo’s 2,514 mm wheelbase was shortened to 2,400 mm for the Spyder models, which evolved through various versions and followed the same technical and aesthetic development as the coupe, with the exception of the 24-valve 2.8-liter engine that was never installed in the open models. The engines were the same 2.0-liter V6 for the home market, and 2.5-liter unit for export. The Biturbo Spyder was launched following the true Maserati heritage, and featured a leather interior and gold Maserati watch on the dashboard.
