With only 90 cars produced, the 2005 Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa 90th Anniversary is a special edition model celebrating Maserati's 90th year in the automotive industry. The Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed body is finished in Anniversary Blue and features the beloved trident fender badges and a carbon-fiber tonneau cover and roll hoop trim. Additional exterior details include mesh grilles, fog lights, GranSport bodywork, quad exhaust outlets, and a power-retractable blue convertible top.

The car is powered by a Ferrari F430 4.2-liter V8 (known as F136RV8) paired with a six-speed Cambiocorsa automated manual transaxle, and it is equipped with a power-operated blue soft top, 19″ alloy wheels, a Skyhook active suspension, carbon-fiber exterior and interior trim, a CD stereo, automatic climate control, and power-adjustable seats. This combination of amenities, exhilarating performance and a thrilling exhaust note makes this car a joy to drive.


History & Maintenance

The vehicle has had three owners and was purchased new in California on 10/28/ 2005. The owner had the car for three years before selling it. Carfax indicates that the vehicle was regularly serviced. Vehicle was sold at an auction on 11/17/2008 and was regularly serviced before selling again on 9/23/2013. This brings us to our current ownership. Under ownership, car has been maintained and serviced regularly. 


In June 2015, the vehicle had a new sending unit installed due to an oil pressure problem. Engine was checked and ok.In October 15, the car’s transmission was serviced. A new gear selector solenoid and wiring harness for the transmission control was installed, as well as a position sensor kit. In August 2015, the battery was replaced and the clutch was replaced. In June 2019, car had new tires put on, 235/35ZR-19 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S XL in front and 265/30ZR-19 Michelin Pilot Pro Sport 4S XL Rear. 


An accident in 2017 caused damage that required repair and refinishing of the left door and and left fender.


In November 2019, Clutch position sensor, release bearing and clutch was replaced. In September 2020, the car was towed in for shutting off when it shouldn’t, and a code for implausible release bearing position was found and cleared, after consulting with Maserati/Ferrari aftersales the consensus is that the bearing seals stuck to the guide sleeve momentarily from sitting too long, causing the car’s computer to lose reference location of the release bearing. According to the tech’s notes” Use it or lose it! This vehicle needs to be driven regularly!”


In February 2024, the car had a cracked fuel tank pump cover, driver side fuel pump, and fuel pump were replaced. The convertible top was repaired so that it fully retracted properly.l


On March 2024, the vehicle had the following replaced: drive side injector, the servo-assisted steering rack, hydraulic steering pump, left and right cylinder head cover gasket, right rear lower leveler and the convertible top repaired by Morrie’s Ultra Luxury Auto.

Photographer's notes

I’ll admit, I’ve always had a soft spot for these Maseratis. They have tons of character and ooze class without coming across as pretentious. I’ve had the opportunity to drive a few GTs and Spiders, including a GranSport, and mechanically, this feels the best of them all. The color is absolutely sensational and the paint shines brilliantly in the sun. The polished wheels are also gorgeous and luckily have been kept in nice shape. If you’re looking for a nice weekend cruiser or something fun and sophisticated to drive more regularly, it’s tough to beat this car.
