Named after a dry wind blowing across the desert, the Maserati Ghibli was the mastermind of Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro who was only 28 years old at the time. It was initially shown in coupe form during the 1966 Turin Auto Show, the Ghibli broke many design traditions. The body is very low with a massive windshield sloped at a very steep angle.
A convertible (Spyder) was introduced in 1969 and only 125 cars were ever manufactured by this time production ceased in 1973. This Ghibli has 14,000 original miles and includes the rare removable hardtop.
This car is powered by a 4.7 liter, V8 engine with two overhead camshafts per cylinder bank, producing 330 horsepower, and capable of 160 mph. The 3,500-pound car sold for $19,900 in 1971.
