History of the Mazerati Bora
The Maserati Bora is a two-seater mid-engined coupe produced by Maserati from 1971 until 1978. Bora is the wind of Trieste, a city in northern Italy, and like other Maserati automobiles of the era, it is named after a wind. The Bora, the first Maserati with four-wheel independent suspension, put an end to Maserati's reputation for making fast but technologically outdated cars. The Bora was created by Italdesign's Giorgetto Giugiaro and has a drag coefficient of 0.30.
It was civilised and practical in comparison to other supercars, with a hydraulically powered pedal cluster that could be moved forward and backwards at the touch of a button, and a moveable steering wheel to allow for a much easier entry and exit from the vehicle when compared to its contemporaries.
tackle the common issue of entering and exiting the vehicle that plagues many supercars. Most supercars have little to no foot room and little to no baggage space, but the Bora features a full-size trunk in the front and was otherwise renowned as being much more civilised in comforts than its competitors. Unlike its contemporaries, the Bora featured dual-pane glass to separate the cabin from the engine compartment, as well as a carpeted aluminium engine cap, which considerably reduced engine noise in the cabin and increased driver comfort.
Starting with the 1973 model year, two V8 engines were offered: a high-revving 4,719 cc and a greater torque 4,930 cc US smog-qualified 4.9-litre engine (a stroked version of the 4.7). Production eventually shifted to a more powerful version of the 4.9-litre engine rated at 320 horsepower at 5,500 rpm. All of these engines were derived from the legendary 450S racing engine, they were composed of aluminium alloy, and featured hemispherical combustion chambers with 16 valves in total actuated by four cams (chain-driven).
