The maximum speed of a Maserati Bora is 170 mph. The cars were produced between 1971 and 1978.
The Bora ran on a V8 engine outputting 330 bhp. Its frame was made of steel. It was Maserati's first mid-engine vehicle, meaning the engine was actually located between the front and rear axles. Doing so places more weight over the rear axle than exists in a front-engine vehicle, making the vehicle easier to maneuver.
During the 8-year production span, 564 Maserati Boras were produced.
The Bora's unique appearance is due, in part, to the creative license its designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro, was given during its development.
