After Maserati’s proven Grand Prix competition in the 1950s, they sought to develope and produce sporting grand touring cars, first with the 3500GT and next the Sebring. After the success of these models and towards the end of their production runs, Maserati introduced an even more sporting six-cylinder grand tourer, the Mistral. With a wheelbase even shorter than the Sebring, Maserati blurred the distinction between pure sports car and grand tourer. With the previous models styled by Vignale, Maserati pursued Pietro Frua to design the Mistral. Gracefully styled with a full-width air intake, slim bumpers and plenty of glass for the driver's visibility, the Mistral is one of Frua's most refined and elegant designs. The Mistral would be the last of Maserati's six-cylinder gran touring cars and its performance, style and quality have made it highly prized by collectors who appreciate its highly developed attributes for the era as well as its ease of use and enjoyable road manners.

This Mistral is in exceptional condition throughout, it has been owned, serviced and sold by Autosport Designs, Inc. throughout the years. Sold to its most recent collector home in 2008, both prior to this ownership and since its ownership, it has been enjoyed on various vintage rallies and proven itself to be quick, comfortable and reliable. The final and most developed of Maserati’s six-cylinder GT cars, this Mistral is one of the finest examples available and ready for immediate use and enjoyment. A welcomed addition to any garage.
