Responsible for supplying this handsome Gran Turismo when new, the Glenvarigill Company Ltd of Edinburgh also sold it to previous keeper Simon Hemingway under the Trident Approved Scheme on 10th October 2001 at a warranted mileage of 18,423. Finished in Blu Nettuno with Pelle Rossa upholstery and powered by a turbocharged 2.8-litre V6 (284bhp/305lbft) allied to four-speed automatic transmission, the four-seater cost Richard Colton £14,000 upon entering his ownership some four years and 47,000 miles later. Reputedly the penultimate example of just 236 RHD Ghibli IIs made, the Maserati was dispatched to marque specialist Bill McGrath Ltd during August 2006 where £12,462.05 worth of attention was paid to its radiator, steering, front suspension, rear axle, engine (cylinder heads overhauled, new pistons / liners / main bearings / timing chains etc) and interior. Waxoyled the following year, chassis 400235 returned to Bill McGrath Ltd c.3,000 miles ago for a cambelt service, new rear brake callipers and the fitment of stainless steel exhaust back boxes etc. Purchased by the vendor in 2015, the car has recently been treated to a service whilst the wheels have been refurbished. It is offered for sale with original owner's handbook and stamped service book, comprehensive service history including over £17,000 worth of post-2005 invoices, cherished registration V6 NBD and MOT certificate valid until June 2017.
