In July 1983 Maserati launched the sporting Biturbo S, for the Italian market only. Power was up 25 PS to 205 PS (151 kW) at 6500 rpm, thanks to increased turbo boost and twin intercoolers fed by two NACA ducts in the bonnet fed fresh air to the intercooler). The chassis was updated too with lowered suspension and new, wider 6½Jx14" magnesium alloy wheels, painted gunmetal grey with silver center and lip. The S was recognizable by its black mesh grille and the external trim (grille frame, headlight housings, window surround and Maserati badges on the C-pillar) rendered in a dark bronze shade instead of chrome. The customer could only choose between two paint schemes: silver or red, both paired to the lower half of the body in contrasting metallic gunmetal grey.
