Maserati BiTurbo imagined

Does the name Maserati BiTurbo tell you anything? Well, if not, here are some hints to make you remember. The Maserati Biturbo is a sports car introduced by Maserati in 1981. The Biturbo is a two-door, four-seater notchback coupe featuring, as the name implies, a two-litre V6 engine with two turbochargers and a luxurious interior. All Maserati models from the Biturbo's introduction in 1981 until 1997 (except the Quattroporte III) were based on the original Biturbo architecture. And… now that you have remembered, you should know that there is someone else who still thinks of the BiTurbo. And he is the master of digital renderings, Theophilus Chin.

Well, Theophilus Chin is the guy who brought back to life the extraordinary Maserati BiTurbo. His virtual work is inspired by the Ghibli model of the same producer. It features smaller front grille and modified front bumper, as well as revised headlights shape. As a matter of fact the entire vehicle is shorter. The BiTurbo model remains one of the most beautiful Maseratis ever and this new idea could mean Maserati’s return to the compact executive segment.

The BiTurbo was introduced by the Italian company back in 1981. A two-door, four-seater version came first, while a four-door sedan was presented two years later. The car was designed by Pierangelo Andreani, an engineer from the De Tomaso team, and was available with 2.0, 2.5 and 2.8 V6 bi-turbo engines. A 3-speed automatic transmission and a 5-speed manual gearbox were offered. It was thought to be the supreme car, for many years.
