Maserati Tyres

Recommended Maserati 3500GT tyres

  • Longstone recommends the 185 VR 16 PIRELLI CINTURATO CA67 for a Maserati 3500GT. It was the tyre originally fitted to the car as it left the factory gate, and as a road tyre for a car like this, it is still perfect.
  • Another excellent tyre option to fit is the 6.00 R 16 Michelin Pilote X as it was specifically designed by Michelin to look like a period crossply, but perform like a modern radial.
  • The best fitting inner tube for these tyres is the Michelin 16F inner tube.

History of the Maserati 3500GT

The Maserati 3500GT is a 2 door coupe made by Maserati of Italy. It was the Italian company's first attempt at breaking into the GT (Gran Turismo) market and the first time Maserati had invested in large volume production.

The most successful racing car for Maserati at the time was the Maserati 250F. It was introduced in 1954 and with many a famous racing driver at the wheel, Maserati became a force to be reckoned with in motor racing. As Maserati was profiting from this success they introduced a de-tuned version of the Maserati 250F engine into the Maserati 3500 GT. This was a 3.5 litre double overhead cam (DOHC) straight-six, equipped with three side-draft two-barrel carburettors giving the Maserati 240 BHP and a top speed of 145mph.

The Maserati 3500 GT was produced from 1957 through to 1964 and around 2000 examples were made. The design was handled by Carrozzeria Touring and took many styling cues from the Maserati A6G54. Prior to Maserati producing the 3500GT the company had produced only 140 cars in a ten-year span and Maserati soon found themselves panicking as racing and competition had drained nearly all their funds. So Maserati became a mass production company and it is widely accepted that the Maserati 3500GT saved the company and allowed Maserati to continue its racing efforts and to design and develop the now-famous Maserati Birdcage.

In March 1957 the Maserati 3500 GT was unveiled to the public at the Geneva motor show. Two prototypes were shown: one was designed by Touring and the other by Allemano. The Touring design was a 2+2 coupe and was the design selected by Omer Osri for production. There were detail changes made to the headlights, radiator grille, and the dashboard before production began but for the most part, the original design remained unchanged.

During the cars production life span many improvements were made. In 1960 front disc brakes became standard and the four-speed gearbox was replaced by ZF five-speed gearbox. In 1961 Maserati decided to fit disc brakes to all 4 wheels and in 1962 Maserati added Lucas fuel injection which gave another 15hp.
