Description

"It differs from many cars of similar performance in that it is equally as suited to going to the opera as blasting down to Palermo on the Autostrada." - Road & Track.

The Maserati Ghibli made its debut in 1966 at the Turin motor show and was equipped with a 335hp strong four-cam V8 90 ° 4.7 engine derived from the Maserati 450s racecar, which was later largered to 4.9 liters for the "SS" version. With a top speed of 275km / h (!), This Ghibli competed with its also Italian counterpart, the Ferrari 365GTB Daytona. The design of the Ghibli was drawn by Giorgetto Giugiaro for the design house of Ghia, where he managed to create a perfectly balanced, timeless design that is today one of the most beautiful car designs ever. The elegance combined with the brutal power makes this Ghibli, named after a Sahara desert wind, a true Italian GT-car.

This offered example from 1970 received a complete and documented revision in '88 -'89, after which the last owner enjoyed it for a couple of years, before it was carefully put aside in 1993. When we found this Ghibli in its stable, This Maserati was, except for one repaint, in completely original condition: from engine and suspension to even carpets and spare wheel. To guarantee our RNR quality after a long time of no driving, we have overhauled all technical parts: the engine, gearbox, suspension, brakes, etc ... (including an extensive series of photos). It’s needless to say that this very original Maserati Ghibli is absolute perfection!

In brief:
-matching numbers
-Certificato d'origine
-Original interior
-Original toolkit
-Original spare wheel
- Recently overhauled engine
-Lots of history

This elegant beast looks the way it drives and sounds: incredible. A very unique car with a lot of potential investment!
