Before sales of the 3500GT began to slow, Maserati presented its new 3500GTI Coupé S at the Geneva Motor Show in 1962. "S" stood for Sebring, and referred to the racetrack in Florida where Maserati 450S racing cars took an important win in the hands of Fangio and Behra a few years earlier. The new car became known as the Sebring and was based on the short 3500GT Spyder chassis. Its 2+2 body was a design from Giovanni Michelotti during his time at Vignale. With the exception of four early examples equipped with Weber carburetors, the inline-6 engine of the series was fitted with Lucas fuel injection. The sporty Sebring featured a number of technical improvements over the 3500GT, including optional automatic transmission, air conditioning and Borrani wire wheels that made it the ultimate luxury GT of its day.
