The Maserati Ghibli needs little introduction to Italian car enthusiasts and surely must be one of the most iconic designs of all time, a rival to the Lamborghini Miura and the Ferrari Daytona.
Chassis 1052 on offer was sold new in Italy 1969 and was exported to Sweden where it was registered on the 18th of April 1975. In 1994 the Chairman of the Swedish FIA, Gunnar Elmgren, bought the car to complement the Maserati 6CM he was racing at the time.
The owner after Gunnar Elmgren was Jan Mathiasson from Gothenburg who subsequently sent it to Swedish Maserati Specialists AMK in Saltsjöö-Boo in 2005 to have the body and engine restored. The interior was also re-trimmed at the same time. The car was sold to Stockholm collector Roddy Berntsson who sent it back to AMK, this time to have the brakes and suspension refurbished. The car was then Ferrari red but the current owner has had it repainted in Rosso Rubino, the colour it was painted originally. This is a splendid example, in nice condition, with superb mechanics and still retaining its original engine.
