The Biturbo era saw its conclusion with the introduction of the completely new 3200GT, presented in 1998 and made through 2002. With the 3200GT, Maserati returned to its roots with a true Gran Turismo in the great tradition of the brand. It was a completely new vehicle, powered by a substantially modified V8 engine from the Shamal and Quattroporte IV. Producing 370 hp, it was offered with a six-speed manual ZF transmission or a four-speed automatic gearbox. The design from Giugiaro was, just like his creations for Maserati in the past, a true masterpiece, and this model was primarily responsible for the global revival of the brand that began in 1998. Its boomerang-shaped taillights were the first on a production car to use LED technology.
