GR Auto Gallery is pleased to bring to market this low production,
gorgeous 1980 Maserati Merak. The car is finished in Rosso Fuoco
over a tan leather interior and shows very well. The 3.0 V6 runs
great at sounds healthy. The 5 speed manual transmission shifts
smoothly and the car holds the road well. The Merak rides on 15
