1988 / 1990
Introduced in 1988 at the Turin Motor Show to replace the Biturbo, the 222 was redesigned by Gandini with a rounded nose, new rear-view mirrors and a rear spoiler. All these modifications contributed to improving the car’s aerodynamics. 222 indicates the 2-door body style, 2-litre displacement and 2nd stage of the Biturbo evolution. The interior materials were a mixture of velvet fabric, leather and wood trim. Seat ergonomics had been revised, and leather seats were available as an option. Included in the basic specification were air conditioning and central locking. The rear boot lid can be opened electrically via a switch on the dashboard, while the classic Maserati central clock now has its own lighting.
