Introduced at the Geneva auto show in 1957, the Maserati 3500 GT was produced through 1964. More than 2,200 of these sleek 2+2 pillarless coupes were built, each one a tribute to the racing heritage of one of Italy’s most storied car builders. The 3500 GT’s alloy body was styled by Carrozzeria Touring and utilized the firm’s famous Superleggera lightweight construction techniques.

Prior to the current ownership, custodians have included two prominent collectors, the first being that of noted Maserati connoisseur Alfredo Brener who owned it from the mid-1990s through to 2001 and more recently J. Geils of the J. Geils Band. In its present fastidious ownership, the car has been required to be ready to use at all times and when inspected by a Bonhams specialist it performed well on the road.
