1987 Maserati 430 - interior view of the classic car model

The 430 was launched in 1987 to be sold alongside the 425, and finally replaced it in 1989. It was equipped with the new 2.8-liter fuel-injected engine from the 228, and was intended primarily for export markets. The power output reached 250 hp for versions without a catalytic converter, and the top speed approached 150 mph. Such performance, paired with the luxurious refinement of the interior, made the 430 a contender at the very top end of the luxury-sport sedan market. Only 995 examples were built between 1987 and 1994. The new four-valve-per-cylinder heads were adopted on the 430 from 1991, increasing the power output to 279 hp. The car bore the 430 4v nametag, to differentiate it from the three-valve model, which was continued. Both models benefited from the latest styling upgrades: new, slimmer headlights, a wider front grille, new bumpers and sills, seven-spoke alloys, and spoilers on the trunk lid and at the base of the windscreen.
