Any classic Maserati is bound to garner a lot of attention, but it’s no surprise that this 1972 one-off Maserati Boomerang sold for $3.7 million at auction.
Originally designed as a show car and styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Boomerang sports a 310-hp 4.7-liter V8 engine from the Maserati Bora. The bespoke model first appeared at the 1971 Turin auto show, but without an engine or running gear.
It finally made its working, street-legal debut at the 1972 Geneva auto show. After years of private shows and exhibitions, including an appearance at the 1990 Bagatelle Concours d’Élégance, the one-off model traded hands between a few private collectors.
With a futuristic exterior and wild interior design, the Boomerang is easily identifiable by its lounge-style brown leather seats, tubular steering wheel, and gauge center.
Maserati’s one-of-a-kind 1972 Boomerang sold at the Château de Chantilly, France, on September 5, for $3.7 million.
