One Of The Craziest Maseratis Ever Made Is Looking For A New Home

Auction

Amazingly this car was not designed in the 80s.

The Maserati Boomerang is an incredible piece of automotive history. When it first debuted at the 1971 Turin Auto Show it was basically a box with wheels on it. By the time the 1972 Geneva Auto Show came around the Boomerang was fitted with a 4.7-liter V8 sourced from Maserati’s own Bora, giving it an impressive top speed of 180 mph. As you might have guessed Giorgetto Giugiaro’s iconic concept car was more about design and less about performance.

Giugiaro is a heavyweight when it comes to automotive design, which means the Boomerang influenced both his work and the works of others. The angular exterior was a huge hit, although we wish the crazy dashboard would have caught on with the masses. Seriously, have you ever seen a stranger steering wheel or instrument cluster? Only one Boomerang was ever made and it was listed for auction by Bonhams. We’ll know just how much history is worth when the concept goes up for auction September 5th at The Chantilly Sale in France.
