The 420 was a luxury car built by Maserati from 1985 to 1986.

It was introduced two years after the Maserati 425, and in practice it was the same car except the engine had a cylinder capacity of 2 L instead of 2.5 L.  The car was intended for the Italian market, where high capacities were heavily taxed.

Following his success, Maserati produced in limited series, the 420S. The 420S had  better handling on the road and a new double intercooler, which resulted in more power. It was a rear-wheel driven sedan.

Only 2810 units of the 420 and 254 of the 420S were produced. The 420 and the 420Si both came with fuel injection system.


The transmission was a 5-speed unit with reverse. Available on request, was an automatic transmission. The front suspension was comprised of double action MacPherson struts. The steering was rack and pinion, while the brakes were hydraulic discs. The front track was 1442 mm while the rear was 1450 mm.

The Engine

The engine, mounted longitudinally was a V6 with the cylinders at an angle of 90°. The displacement was 1996 cc and had three valves per cylinder. The engine mounted on the 420S was producing 156.6 kW at 6500rpm. The engine had twin turbochargers installed.
