Maserati cars have always been vehicles that many aficionados aspire to own. One such cars from the Italian carmaker, is the Maserati Boomerang Concept. The Boomerang made its first public debut at the 1971 Turin Motor Show. But at that point, the Boomerang was only a show car and it was only a year later, in 1972, that the Boomerang raised its fully functional head at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Maserati Boomerang was designed by the venerable Giorgetto Giugiaro from Italdesign studio. Giugiaro has penned the design of cars for Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini, Ferrari, BMW, Lancia, Aston Martin and of course, Maserati (among many others). The Maserati Boomerang features an eye-catching, sharp, angular and wedge-shaped design. The Boomerang was built around the same chassis as that of the Maserati Bora supercar that came out in 1971. It also packs the same 300bhp V8 engine of the Bora and top speed is 300 km/h.
The cabin of the Boomerang is pretty sci-fi and features a static central disc for the steering wheel, contributing to the overall unique appearance of the dashboard. Being as rare as it is, this one-off Maserati will fetch at least a couple of million dollars when it goes up on auction. Unlike most concept cars, the Maserati Boomerang is a fully-functional vehicle and is also registered for use on public roads.
