Maserati Merak SS

Maserati Merak SS

The Maserati Merak SS was a sports car manufactured by Italian auto company Maserati. Car experts consider the Merak to be essentially a scaled down version of the more expensive Maserati Bora with a smaller engine and a marginally different exterior appearance. In all other key aspects, the Merak is almost a clone of the more popular Bora. The Merak is considered to be an exotic sports car due to a combination of factors like the vehicle’s production in very limited numbers not exceeding two thousand specimens and also due to fact that its factory production stopped after 1982. The Merak produced a seductive combination of good looks allied with excellent performance if the twin parameters of high speed and fast pickup were taken into consideration. The car cost around $12,000 at the time of its launch in 1974 and today a fully functional Merak can fetch anywhere in the range of $30,000 to $50,000 in an auction.

   

Interior

The interiors of the Maserati Merak SS are reasonably spacious with decent legroom, head space and can hold three to four people at a time. However, it must be noted that the rear seats are extremely small compared to most cars since the extra space for them was squeezed out only by opting for a smaller engine than its predecessor vehicle, the Maserati Bora. The interiors of the Merak are pretty stylized and key parts of it like the bucket seats, door trim, dash, rear bulkhead and centre console have been upholstered in high quality leather. Good user friendly features like electrically operated windows and height adjustable driver seats have been incorporated in the car. The air conditioner is pretty good and a music system has been installed in some of the Merak’s.

The Maserati Merak SS is a two door coupe and came with a permanent brushed stainless steel sunroof. It sported a unitary steel monocoque chassis along with open flying buttresses at its rear end and was equipped with aluminum alloy wheels. The Merak’s fish shaped exterior appearance was further attenuated by the presence of its retractable headlights along with windscreen pillars. The car also featured a rectangular front lid mounted grille and matte black louvres on the sail panels. Plenty of color options like fly yellow, chrome red, silver gray and jet black were available for an exterior paint job.
