Maserati 5000 GT 

Thanks to the success of the 3500 GT, Maserati had been revitalized, which ultimately led to the creation of the 5000 GT. It didn’t take long for the 5000 GT to establish itself as an equally successful model to the 3500 GT as the 5000 GT began to rival Ferrari’s classic 250 GT models. 

5000 GT Genesis 

After the Maserati 3500 GT became a well-known hit, top of the line car enthusiasts such as The Shah of Iran wanted not only the car but an improved version of the car above the standard model. Maserati felt up to the challenge as they began working on a version of the 3500 GT for the Shah of Iran that would become the 5000 GT. 

Chief Maserati engineer, Giulio Alfieri, fit the 3500 GT with an unused 450S motor. The chassis was then fitted with disc brakes, while the exterior of the car was fitted with rakish coachwork as a sign of elegance. 

Once the 5000 GT was created, it was showcased at the Turin Motor Show in 1959. Following the creation of Shah’s vehicle, two more cars were made with identical mechanical design. Designing the first three models of the new Maserati GT’s allowed Alfieri to make the 5000 GT more agreeable with modern driving. 

The car’s bore and stroke were brought to a slightly bigger displacement, while the Weber carburetors served to be replaced by a Lucas fuel-injection system. 

With adjustments made by Alfieri, the 5000 GT became more:

  • Refined
  • Responsive 
  • Sophisticated 

It didn’t take long for numerous high profile individuals to hop on the emerging 5000 GT trend in addition to the Shah of Iran. With all the additions and modifications that a 5000 GT contained, the car sold for nearly double the price of a 3500 GT at $17,000. 

Miracle 5000 GT Survival

With only 34 5000 GT models produced by Maserati, it’s no surprise that coming across even a disheveled version of the iconic car would be worth a pretty penny. For close to 50 years, a 5000 GT model sat parked in Saudi Arabia, slowly wasting away. 

Originally planned to be crushed, the late 5000 GT owner’s family decided to move the car inside. In August of 2019, the rusty 5000 Maserati GT sold for a stunning $533,000. Part of what makes this vehicle remain sought after is the attention to detail. 

Bespoke design and detailing runs heavy through the 5000 GT. 

Gorgeous quad headlights, unique wheel wells, and bespoke bumpers are just a few of the key elements that place the 5000 GT in a league of its own. 

5000 GT Conclusion

With only 34 models of the 5000 GT Produced, the car stands as one of the most desirable vehicles in the world. Maserati designed the 5000 GT for the best of the best. 5000 GT’s serve as a stunning example of Maserati’s design and engineering capability. 

The 3500 GT put Maserati back on the map, while the 5000 GT kept the company in world view.

People have been telling me to go look at Dusty Cars and I'm glad I did. One day, I took the family round and met Doug, the place is great. We saw some really nice vintage cars and even got taken for a drive in one of them.

It's been some time since I've been able to do something for myself and I was looking for something that wasn't going to cost me anything, but still give me a pleasurable outing. Dusty Cars was that one outing. I was able to just look around and take in all the cars around me.

Dear Dusty Cars, Thank you for your hospitality in welcoming us into your dealership. My grandson loved seeing all of your vehicles and committed to star saving his allowance in order to buy one as soon as he turns 21. He's not anywhere near where he needs to be yet, but we'll hold thumbs and keep you in mind for that upcoming visit.

Doug was fantastic to us when we first arrived, but after he had to go and do something urgently, we spoke to another worker there who took great care of us too. Their customer service is good!

Upon meeting John at Dusty Cars, we knew we were in the right place to get our new vintage car. The staff was very professional and friendly, they knew everything about all of the cars and were able to help us get exactly what we needed. Thank you for everything you've done for us. We'll definitely be back again.

I particularly love the details that the owners pay attention to. There are very few things better than sitting in vintage car with the smell of the leather seats, seeing brand new dials on the car. It's great to see how much care is put into restoring these works of art.

I was accessing my father's storage garage after he passed away, which coincidentally, was just across the street from Dusty Cars! I knew there was a car in there and thought it must have been a sign from God to take my car there and sell it to them. It was such a nice experience and I'll go back again.

The dealership is a wonderful place to visit. Love the cars, love the people, love the dog!!! Even though I'm not a collector of any kind, there's something special about coming to see the love they put into their restoration process.

I've always been a lover of classic cars, precisely the 1956 Porsche 356 Coupe, which is considered as the grandfather of Porsche. I was filled with excitement when I saw my dream car listed on eBay by Dusty Cars. I could count almost a 100 stunning pictures of this car on display, with the metal components, the 4-cylinder, air cooled engine and the red leather interior all in good condition. Douglas is indeed a professional; his attention to details is flawless.
