Throughout the years, Maserati has changed ownership many times and has gone through product phases ranging from the sublime to the outrageous. There was one car that almost finished the company off. Shortly after taking over ownership, Alejandro de Tomaso sought to create a vehicle that could broaden Maserati’s appeal to a wider market segment by offering a lower priced offering. The Biturbo was launched at the outset of the 1980s and got off to a strong start in the sales race, but problems with the turbocharged engine and reliability issues plagued the model throughout its life. Subsequently, Biturbos can be had on the cheap, but is it a risk worth taking? This Biturbo for sale in Washington state has to be one of the best preserved examples of the breed that I’ve ever come across.

If you are looking to buy a Biturbo, this car should be at the top of your list. Low mileage often means problems with these cars, but with the recent money invested in maintenance and one owner history, it should do a lot to assuage fears. About $10,000 to $12,000 is all the money for the best of the best when it comes to these cars, so I’d expect bidding to wind up somewhere in that range.
