Maserati hardly needs any introduction. Already a legendary racing marque before the war, the company turned to the limited production of sports cars for the road in the 1950s. These proved to be highly successful, and manufacture continued throughout the '60s with the company taking credit for some of the most potent and luxurious cars of the era. None upheld this great tradition better than the magnificent Ghibli. Introduced to an enthusiastic public at the Turin Show of 1966, the Ghibli broke with the recent Maserati tradition for conservative designs, instead displaying dramatic, purposeful lines, drawn by none other than Giorgietto Giugiaro whilst still at Ghia's design studio. Under the bonnet was Maserati's magnificent all alloy 4.7 litre four camshaft V8 engine, derived from the company's sports racing car power plants and mated to a five speed gearbox. C
