The Maserati Indy was first seen in 1968 at the Turin Motor Show on the Vignale stand as a prototype. A year later, at the Geneva Auto Show, the production version was unveiled. The Indy received its name in celebration of the 8C TF's victory at the Indianapolis 500 race in 1939.

The Maserati Indy, the replacement to the Mexico, offered 2+2 seating and was powered by an eight cylinder engine. In comparison to the Mexico, the Indy had a shorter wheelbase and the front and rear track were increased. It also rested closer to the ground than its predecessor.

The 4.1-liter V8 engine was later replaced with a 4.7-liter engine and finally the 4.9-liter engine from the Ghibli SS.

Produced through 1975, a total of 1,104 examples were built. The Indy was also the first Maserati to be built under the ownership of Citroen, as they had acquired the Italian marque in January of 1968.

This particular example is a 4.7-liter example fitted with a five-speed manual transmission and Girling four-wheel disc brakes. It left the factory finished in Azzurro Hyperion over a black leather interior. It was completed on October 8th of 1970 and delivered to Mexico City.

At some point in the car's history, it was upgraded with a 4.9-liter engine from a later Indy.

The Indy was purchased in 1998 by Doug Magnon and later joined the Collection of the Riverside International Automotive Museum after it was founded in 2006. While in the museum's care, the Indy was refinished in its original exterior color, the front seats were reupholstered, and the cooling systems was upgraded.
