My interest in Maseratis started when I was 5 years old, flicking model racing cars with my thumb - BMWs, Alfas, Mercs, and Maseratis. I wish I still has these models as they would be very desirable today (despite being badly bruised!). This interest (along with some family ties) has led me to make monthly trips to Italy, during which I scour breaker's yards and various other parts suppliers..

I have bought cars both to break, and for re-sale purposes (knowing that the experience of driving another Maserati back to the UK will be fun in itself!).

My stockpile, although not large, is steadily increasing in quantity and diversity. I am normally able to fulfill any request within 4 weeks, as I can find what I need on my next visit to Italy.

I have been visiting Italian scrapyards ever since my first purchase of a Maserati in 1995 (a black/grey 430). My original business took me abroad on a regular basis, so it made sense to source new and used parts from the home of Maserati.

I also purchased a silver Biturbo Coupe soon afterwards, which had light front-end damage, with the intention of getting it back onto the roads. 2 years on (and £5000 later) the partially finished car was sold for £3000. This was a learning (albeit costly) experience during which I learnt much about the construction & failings of the cars.

Most of my stock is for the Biturbo range of cars (1982-1992) although I do also carry parts for later Ghibli models, and more recently the 3200 and 4200 models. The cost of collating stock to cover any request is financially not possible for me, but I am able to source most quickly (whether new or used, and for a variety of models).

I am beginning to become acquainted with the various breaker's yards throughout northern Italy where different models can be located. The demand for Biturbo parts in Italy is flagging as the price of these cars reduces. Hence cars are often completely crushed in order to free up space for a modern Fiat (or similar). Consequently it has become more difficult to find these treasures.

Welcome to The Maserati Shed, Hampshire and the Solent area's only Nineties and Naughties Maserati and Alfa Romeo specialist. What you won't find is a gleaming city centre showroom that's all smiles, high hourly labour rates, and no real knowledge of your car if it's older than five years.

What you will find is a small, well equipped workshop with the skills - and most importantly - the enthusiasm for 1990s and 21st century Italian sports and performance cars, in an easy to find rural location between Southampton and Portsmouth.

Both our vehicle lifts are made by the Italian firm of Ravaglioli - perfect for your Italian car, and a Blackhawk body jig for those "oops, what tree?" moments and minor body repairs. However, for major bodywork we would recommend an outstanding local body shop that produces consistently higher quality work than we're capable of.

We have the very latest Fiat/Alfa Romeo Examiner Smart computer diagnostic system, and the Maserati Sistema Diagnosi 2 (SD2) computer diagnostic system, as well as lots more for the older cars (Fiat/Marelli Tester for older Alfas, Fiats, Lancia Delta Integrales and obscure stuff like the Lancia Ferrari Thema 8.32 and the Marielli Unitest 5000 for the first generation of electronic fuel injected Maseratis).

Our Sistema Diagnosi 2 (SD2) system is the official dealer diagnostic system for the V8 cars, both Maserati and Ferrari engined - 3200GT, 4200GT, Gransport, Quattroporte, and Coupe. With Maserati dashboards often lighting up like Piccadilly Circus whenever you turn the ignition key, be reassured that we will be able to quickly track down the cause and rectify it before it becomes an expensive problem, or just turn off an annoying airbag warning light that's come on because you've had a flat battery one morning...

Having the right diagnostic equipment for these cars is vital, especially if there is something wrong as it can pinpoint the problem quickly and accurately avoiding the expensive "replace everything until it's fixed" philosophy of the non-specialist garage. If considering using another independent specialist, ask them if they have this equipment. If they don't, walk away...

Autoshield was opened in 1985 and is owned and managed by Marios Kriticos, who started the company after returning from the Middle East where he worked as a service manager for BMW and later as an engineer in the transport department at Dubai Airport.

Originally Autoshield specialised in automotive electrical work and soon became a regular service agent for the main Maserati dealer in Manchester. Now acting as a consultant it wasn’t long before Marios was asked to become an official Maserati service centre for the North West and Autoshield Maserati was born. After a few years he was then offered the opportunity to expand into a full dealership, but declined. Preferring instead to focus on the service side of the business.

Now an established specialist in all things Maserati and Ferrari, Autoshield Maserati have a wealth of experience covering everything from the ‘classic’ cars and Bi-Turbo’s right through to the latest GT’s and Quatroporte’s.

Marios is a respected member of the Maserati Club UK and regularly attends their events. With a personal collection of old, rare and modern Maserati’s, Marios is as passionate about the marque as his customers. He’s also a regular participant in an annual European driving tour where he participates as a driver, offers technical support to other drivers and contributes the fund raising effort. A true enthusiast!requirements.

Maserati sales and sourcing

With a breadth of knowledge of the prestigious Maserati brand, we specialise in supplying Maserati 3200, 4200, Gransport, Quattroporte and Granturismo as well as classic Maseratis. We also have a great deal of experience with certain other marques, including Aston Martin, Porsche, Audi and Ferrari.

All the cars we supply have a comprehensive service history and are fully serviced if required and inspected by highly regarded independent specialists or main dealerships. This ensures that we are providing competitively priced cars which are fully prepared to the highest standards, both mechanically and cosmetically. This gives peace of mind to our customers, as these independent experts will always be willing to share their opinions on the cars.

If you are looking for a particular model or specification of car which we do not have in stock, and would like us to help, please do get in touch with us as we also source cars for our clients. Our consultative approach to our clients lets you make informed decisions, saving you time and money. We are often able to find cars to a requested specification, have them fully prepared, checked, and serviced if required, at a price lower than many other dealers who may not include this service with their cars. We supply many more cars than the ones for sale on our site, so if you’re looking for a Maserati, or any other special car, please do contact us.

We supply comprehensive 6 month warranties with all our cars. These warranties have a list of parts which are excluded rather than those which are included, so customers are fully aware of what is covered. They can also be extended to 12, 24 or 36 months.
