The 3500GT, introduced in 1957, replaced the A6G54 in production and radically increased Maserati's production volumes over the following few years. Boneschi made two cars in this version: chassis AM101.2500 (Turin'62) and AM101.2724 (Geneva'63). Both the chassis, still tubular with independent front suspension and a live rear axle, and the engine, still a DOHC in-line six, were new. The latter showed more difference from its predecessors, a derivative of the 250F GP car engine with a displacement of 3485cc, two spark plugs per cylinder, and a power output of 220bhp.
As usual, the bodies were built by various coachbuilders, the majority being aluminum-bodied coupes by Touring or steel-bodied convertibles (with a reduced wheelbase) by Vignale (although Bertone, Allemano, and Frua also contributed some examples). Moretti, Boneschi, and Touring built one-offs.
