The Maserati Mistral succeeded to the 3500 GT and was first introduced in Turin in 1963. The convertible, also known as Maserati Mistral Spyder, was first shown at the Geneva show in 1964 and was produced in only 125 units until the model was discontinued in 1970. Early models were fitted with the same engine as the 3500 GT and were later replaced by more powerful versions. The 3.5-liter DOHC straight-six was equipped with a Lucas fuel-injection system and was bolted to a five-speed ZF transmission. Built on a shorter wheelbase than the 3500, the 1964 Maserati Mistral Spyder offered great balance and handling, as well as four disk brakes, an independent front suspension and a typical Salisbury rear axle.
Being more rare, the Spyders are more difficult to come by and often more expensive.
