The BiTurbo lineup of cars started with the 222 model, which was a handsome two-door coupe, and continued with 420 and 430 sedans built on the same basis. The BiTurbos were entry-level Maseratis at more affordable prices than expected (via Maserati).
Under the hood was a new generation of turbocharged 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter V6 engines with high power output, from 180 HP up to 270 HP in later years. However, the BiTurbo generation of cars was known for its lack of reliability, disappointing performance, and terrible mechanical issues. Maserati made over 40,000 BiTurbos in 13 years and only a tiny fraction of that number is still on the road.
