Introduction

The 3200 GT was announced in July 1998, presented to the press in September by Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, with the participation of veteran Maserati racing driver Sir Stirling Moss and Giorgetto Giugiaro, and finally made its public debut at the October 1998 Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris.

Its name honoured the Maserati 3500 GT, the Trident's first series production grand tourer. Sold mainly in Europe, the 3200 GT was powered by the twin-turbo, 32-valve, dual overhead cam 3.2-litre V8 engine featured in the Quattroporte Evoluzione, set up to develop 370 PS (272 kW; 365 hp) against the Quattroporte's 335 PS—115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp) per litre. This manual transmission version was produced until 2001. The tail-lights consisted of LEDs arranged in the shape of boomerang. The outer layer of the 'boomerang' provided the brake light, with the inner layer providing the directional indicator. Deliveries started in March 1999.

3200 GT Automatica

In 1999 an automatic version of the 3200 GT became available, either referred to as 3200 GT Automatica or 3200 GTA. Introduced at the March 1999 Geneva Motor Show, it was equipped with a 4-speed conventional torque converter automatic transmission supplied by Australian firm BTR. Engine output remained unchanged, though the engine was set up specifically for the automatic; according to Maserati, the weight increase over the manual gearbox was limited to 30 kg (66.1 lb), for a 1,620 kg (3,571.5 lb) kerb weight. In Italy the Automatica commanded a 7 million Lire premium over the 3200 GT's 149.5 million Lire list price. This version was produced until 2002. In June 1999 the 1000th 3200 GT left the factory.

3200 GT Assetto Corsa

Presented to the public at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show, the 3200 GT Assetto Corsa was a limited edition, run-out version of the GTA with a special handling package. Limited to 250 units, it was available in three colours: Grigio Touring, Grigio Alfieri and Rosso Mondiale. Assetto Corsa was lowered by 15 mm, had larger front anti-roll bar, stiffer springs, soft compound Pirelli PZero Corsa tyres on dark grey painted BBS alloy wheels, and specific brake ventilation ducts. Interior featured perforated Connolly leather seats and 'Assetto Corsa' script on the sill kick panels. Both kerb weight and performance were unchanged from the GTA
