CAR OF 1966 MASERATI GHI­BLI

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - 6-page Nostalgia Special -

Maserati’s two-seater pro­to­type was in­tro­duced at the Turin Mo­tor Show in Novem­ber 1966 and couldn’t help but im­press with its low-pointed nose that had writ­ers think­ing of sharks many years be­fore Jaws. The sharp look was styled by a young Gior­getto Gi­u­giaro, who was work­ing for Ghia at the time. With a V8 en­gine cou­pled to a five-speed man­ual gear­box, pop-up head­lamps, air-con­di­tion­ing, al­loy wheels and leather sports seats, it was a hit with the few who could af­ford it. It could reach 60mph in less than seven sec­onds and was ca­pa­ble of hit­ting 155mph.
