By the late 1960s production of the Maserati Mexico and Quattroporte models began to slow and the factory searched for a similarly shaped, newly styled 4-seater compliment model for the well-received Ghibli. The Maserati Indy made its debut in 1969 and featured a Vignale built body wrapped around the then proven performance of Maseratis quad-cam V8 engine. Initially in 4.2 liter form, the engine displacement increased twice during production. Minor styling and interior differences distinguish the models from each other. With beautiful lines, seating for four, power steering and plenty of luggage space beneath the rear glass hatch the Indy was a success and 1,104 were built between 1969 and 1975. While the Ghibli offered thrills for the senses, the Indy was a more practical, driver friendly model that was perhaps best described by Journalist Paul Frre as very fast and very bourgeois.
1973 introduced the 4900 model with the increased 4.9 liter quad-cam V8 now pushing well over 300 horsepower. The 1973 model also did away with the traditional servo-assisted braking system in favor for Citrons proven high pressure pump system. An upgraded air conditioning system was also fitted that placed less stress on the engine and kept the cabin and its passengers cool. Minor styling changes appeared with a redesigned hood grill and refined dashboard that allowed the driver a better line of sight to the instruments. Only 300 of the well featured Indy 4900s were produced, making them the rarest and most desired Indy model.
The example featured here is finished in rare and desirable Blue Ischia with an impeccably kept Parchment leather interior. This stunning Maserati is among one of the finest examples weve had the pleasure of offering in many years. It was recently acquired from a prominent California Museum collection and comes fully documented with its Maserati Classiche, books, original brochures and more.
