The Maserati Bora is a mid-engined two-seat coupe manufactured by Maserati from 1971 to 1978. The Bora featured a sporty but comfortable cabin with air conditioning and an innovative chassis. The Citroen-based, high-pressure hydraulics controlled the windows, pop-up headlights, adjustable seats and pedal box, as well as the ventilated disc brakes. With its 320-hp, 4,930-cc mid-engine V-8 and five-speed manual transmission, the Bora was capable of 0- to 60-mph times in 6.6 seconds, and a top speed exceeding 160-mph.
