First unveiled in Turin in 1963, the Maserati Mistral was the successor to the iconic 3500 GT. Initially fitted with the same 3.5-liter unit developed from Maserati’s racing cars, the Mistral’s engine was soon upgraded to a 3.7-liter straight-six, with an output of 245 hp. The unit was equipped with Lucas fuel-injection system, providing extra power over the Weber carburetors. Four disc brakes, a front independent suspension, and a traditional Salisbury rear axle gave the car a great handling. The design was by Pietro Frua, who did a fantastic job at making the car look round and modern, while being in the continuity with the newly established Maserati style.
With only 125 convertible units made throughout the production, a 1965 Maserati Mistral Spyder is a rare automobile to come across. If you are reading this article, chances are you are already in the market for one or are gathering information.
