Maserati Biturbo Targa car - today's tempter
Maserati Biturbo

This is almost a law of nature: it's always cheaper to buy a good and well set-up competition car than to build one from scratch.

Note that we said 'good', and this means you need to take plenty of care going over the thing to ensure you're not buying someone else's problems.

That said, we reckon this Maserati Biturbo has plenty to offer someone who may not be after outright line honours but wants something interesting to take on the odd targa event.

The Biturbo was first released in 1981 and had a 13-year model life, during which time it sported several variants on the powerplant and a couple of minor restyles.

This example is running the 2.5lt V6, a high-revving unit that punches out a claimed 200 horses. That's matched to a five-speed manual transmission.

We're told it has the usual race gear, including a roll cage, plus a lot of spares, including wheels and much of the driveline.

Located in the ACT, it's on the market for $40,000.
