No Trouble – 1984 Maserati Biturbo

June 30, 2014

Standing on its own, apart from the history of its marque, the Maserati Biturbo is a pretty neat car. This is especially true when you look at it compared to similar size and class cars of the 1980s – the Biturbo looks a little like an E30 3-series from an alternate universe, with a twin turbocharged V6 instead of the 2.7 eta engine. That’s not to gloss over the issues the Biturbo had, but once one has made it this far without self-combusting or devolving into a sunburned shell with cracked leather and blown headgaskets, you know it’s either had an overindulgent owner, or it’s a good’un. You can find this 1984 Maserati Biturbo for sale for $4200 in Hayward/Castro Valley, CA.

The Anti-E30 – 1987 Maserati BiTurbo Si

September 16, 2013

The BMW E30 3-series of 1983-91 is currently filling the niche of affordable used sports sedan. However, in the time before Mercedes was trying to be both sporty *and* luxurious, and before Lexus and Infiniti were a glint in their Daddies’ eyes, there still was some competition, however feeble. And two of those competitors were Italian – the more fully-developed Alfa Romeo Milano, and the somewhat quality-challenged Maserati BiTurbo. This 1987 BiTurbo Si is available in Shingle Springs, CA with bidding at $2475 and only 2 1/2 days left to go.
