Description

The Indy, Tipo 116, with bodywork by Vignale was first shown in 4.2litre form, at the Turin Motor show on the Vignale stand in 1968, and at the Geneva Show on the Maserati stand in 1969. Launched as a comfortable four-seater grand tourer with good luggage space with a speed in excess of 150 mph. In 1972, the engine was increased to 4.7 litres developing 290 bhp, and power steering and air conditioning were a standard fitting. Production of Maserati cars was low and Indys were only made to order. In total only 1,136 Indys were made in all forms.

This 4.2 litre Maserati Indy is finished in the beautiful colour of Baby Blue with a cream interior. Although an older restoration, the work has stood the test of time. The paint still retains a good shine, the chrome is in fine order and the car presents very well with good panel fit. The interior is presented in good condition and the spacious cabin is well-suited for long-distance touring.

Originally supplied new in left-hand drive, this car was converted to right-hand drive a number of years ago and is reading just 89,099 kilometres or 55,350 miles. Supplied with a current MoT certificate, UK registration is required but all EU taxes are paid. There is a vast history file supplied with the car that details invoices for work carried out and old MoT certificates going back many years.

The Maserati Indy was a genuine supercar of its day with 150 mph performance and stylish Vignale looks. They are a very rare sight in the UK and this example represents a very affordable proposition for anyone considering classic Maserati ownership or adding to their collection.
