About our 1972 Maserati Ghibli
Our Ghibli Spyder is one of the one hundred Spyders that were built fitted with the 4.7 litre engines. Offering stylish and powerful cruising as well, this car is as beautiful to look at as it is to drive.
History of the 1972 Maserati Ghibli
Giorgio Giugiaro called 1966 his best year of design. The Ghibli Spyders from 1966-1973 were all built from this design. In October of 1968 at the Turin Italy Auto Show, four of his most outstanding creations were premiered, including one of his proudest, the Maserati Ghibli Spyder. With a noble lineage, those previewing its V-8 quad cam motor and legendary suspension knew it was a direct descendant of the 50s Maserati competition cars. The Spyder boasted an impressive top speed of 168 mph with its five-speed transmission and 4.72 liter, 330 HP V-8. Just 1,274 Ghibli Spyders and Coupes were built from 1966-1973. Just one hundred Spyders were built fitted with the 4.7 litre engine while another twenty-five ‘SS’ Spyders utilizing the slightly more powerful 4.9 engine completed the Ghibli production run. The recent increased interest in these beautiful Spyders has left many with a desire for one and not enough produced to go around. They will undoubtedly rise with the tide of their contemporary Ferrari brothers to a place where they will soon be unobtainable. This is the last of an era of classic Maserati Spyders and nothing has come close from the great Italian auto maker since.
