    Wouter Melissen Last updated: September 22, Download: Page 1 of 1 Launched at the Turin Motor Show late in , the Maserati Boomerang was the third in a line of wedge-shaped show cars created by designer Giorgietto Giugiaro for his company Italdesign. In addition to the striking exterior, the Maserati Bora-based Boomerang boasted an equally futuristic interior.

    Finished in a striking bright orange, the Boomerang was still a non-runner when shown in Turin. By the spring of , the car was fully functional and re-painted silver ahead of its appearance at the Geneva Motor Show. What was left unaltered was the dramatic wedge-shape design. A single, straight line ran from the tip of the nose all the way to the top of the roof. The sides of the Boomerang were two flat surfaces, cut in half by the sharp belt-line. On the inside, the Boomerang was perhaps even more spectacular with all the attention focused on the steering wheel.

    Mounted on a circular extension of the dashboard, the steering wheel housed all the major dials. In the original design, the emphasis was on a single large rev-counter but for the sake of practicality other, essential dials were added and a smaller rev-counter fitted. The whole column also served as a safety feature as it was connected to chain to prevent it protruding into the car in case of an accident.

    The rest of the interior was lavishly appointed with leather used for both the seats and the door-cards. Serving as underpinnings for the Boomerang was a Bora platform, including its throaty V8. Although reports at the time suggested a competition engine was fitted, it is more likely that a street-specification V8 was fitted.

    In fact, when later tested, the Boomerang actually proved slightly slower than the Bora on which it was based. Following the fully functional Boomerang's debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the wedge-shaped machine was displayed at the Paris, London and Barcelona motor shows. Like so many show cars of the day, the Boomerang was sold to a private customer in Many of the details of the one-off Maserati have made it onto subsequent production cars, most notably the wedge-shaped Lotus Esprit.
