The Maserati 228 (Tipo AM334) was a two-door, 5-seater GTcoupé based on the Biturbo chassis. It was conceived to fill the void left in the Maserati range by the departed Kyalami, and was therefore aimed at the same market of the large GTs of the past like the 3500 GT and Mexico. To accomplish this it was based on the longer wheelbase chassis (2.6 m) of the four-door Biturbos, and mounted the bigger 2.8 litre V6 in four-valve configuration (hence the name 228 – 2-door, 2.8 L engine). The notchback coupé bodywork was styled by Pierangelo Andreani, and was larger and longer than the two-door Biturbos, with no common body panels; the interior was also more luxuriously appointed than in the usual two-door cars. The 228 was introduced at the 1986 Turin Motor Show, while its 4-valve prototype was shown back in December 1984. 469 examples of the 228 were built from 1986 to 1992.
