🚗Alejandro de Tomaso, an Argentinian entrepreneur, bought Maserati in 1975 and transformed the company.
⏰The Maserati Biturbo, launched in 1982, was the first twin-turbocharged car and aimed to make Italian luxury more affordable.
🔥The Biturbo featured a revolutionary 6.36 engine with 36 valves, but production challenges led to it being abandoned.
💰Despite reliability issues, the Biturbo sold close to 40,000 units and saved Maserati from bankruptcy.
⚙️Maserati eventually settled for a conventional four-valve cylinder head, a common choice in performance engines.
