- Superb restoration
- Matching numbers
- Undervalued car
Styled by Vignale and presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1969, the Maserati Indy had the advantage of a body that could accommodate four people, and featured an inclined rear window that served as tailgate. The centre-piece of the car was its four-cam V8 engine, designed by Giulio Alfieri and derived from the Maserati 5000 GT. Strong and versatile, the 4.2-litre version developed 250 bhp.
It is believed the car on offer was bought new by a goldsmith from the Place Vend“me in Paris. It arrived in the garage of a Ferrari enthusiast in 2008 who has decided to part with it today. It is complete with the original and highly desirable equipment such as air conditioning and power steering.
Some ten years ago the car was restored at great expense. The interior was renovated by the Antoine upholstery workshop, and is absolutely superb. On the mechanical side, the car retains the original matching numbers engine and will be serviced by a marque specialist before the sale. Here is a wonderful example of a rather overlooked model, offering luxury, comfort and an outstanding performance in a four-seater body.
