The Maserati Ghibli
The Maserati Ghibli one of the most handsome and iconic car of the 1960s. Unquestionably, it was certainly one of the fastest. It was styled in Ghia’s studios by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the iconic designer who would become a legend later on.
The Ghibli was unveiled at the 1966 Turin Motor Show and was very well received. The striking bodywork was wrapped around an aluminium-block V-8 engine, with dry-sump lubrication and double overhead cams. The Ghibli, including SS and cabriolet variants, outsold both of its biggest rivals, the Ferrari Daytona and the Lamborghini Miura.
Despite outselling its closest rivals in period, less than 1,149 examples of the Ghibli coupé were produced between 1967 and 1972, ensuring that the Ghibli is today a very coveted classic sports car by many discerning collectors.
. We are glad to offer an excellent original example originally finished in very desirable yellow with black hide to the interior, a combination which it still retains as of today. It was first delivered to Rome, Italy, with original registration ‘Roma F10629’ and remained in this area until c. 1976. At this stage AM115.0876
was driven by an Italian dealer all the way to Haverud in Sweeden to a Maserati meeting with the hopes to also find a new home for it. It eventually worked out and the car was purchased by former chairman of the Maserati owner’s club Uno Lingmark. AM115.0876
changed hands a couple of time until it was bought by a Swedish enthusiast as a solid restoration project. It was subsequently sent to Maserati specialsts Ake Nordquist’s AMK in the Stockholm area where it went through a full restoration (both bodywork, interior and mechanic).
This fine example would be a great addition to any important Maserati collection and is ready to be enjoyed.
