Maserati Merak Restoration Challenge

You do not necessarily have to tune a car and change it from the inside out in order to draw some attention. Instead, you can just as well grab an old and forgotten supercar dating for decades and restore it. The process is even more expensive, but the results will drop anyone's jaws.

After all, you end up with a unique piece of jewelry that you are less likely to find around. The experts at Oldtimer Australia thought alike when they run into an old and dusty Maserati Merak. They were anxiously looking for a good project and this one looked challenging enough.

Luckily for these guys, the engine was in a relatively decent shape, yet they rebuild their cars from scratch, so they found a new one to put in. The body preparation became the least problematic part. The car is currently waiting for a new paint, as well as a new set of wheels and other performance parts. Just like most other cars prepared by Oldtimer Australia, this Maserati Merak is very likely to go out for sale once it is complete. As for the price, it is hard to tell, but the good news is that the happy buyer will benefit from a brand new, yet old Maserati.
