THE MASERATI MEXICO

Introduced at the 1966 Rimini Concorso d'Eleganza, the Mexico, much like the Ghibli Maserati introduced in 1967, marked a notable shift in Maserati's design language and engines. Named in commemoration of John Surtees' victory in the 1966 Mexican Grand Prix, the new four-seat Maserati featured a thunderous V8 engine developed from the type first seen in the venerable 450S racecar. The Mexico offered exciting performance and pleasing Vignale coupe lines mixed with the luxurious practicality of having room for 4 adults.

First used in the fabulous 5000 GT, the racing-derived DOHC V8 engine was further refined for civilian road use by 1963, when it was called upon to motivate Maserati's first Quattroporte. Along with the potent engine, the Mexico utilized a shortened version of the Quattroporte's steel unibody, along with its double wishbone independent front suspension. The power from the V8 is fed through a 5-speed ZF manual transmission with overdrive to a live rear axle and is brought to a halt by servo-assisted ventilated disc brakes- a first for Maserati.

Production of this handsome four-seat coupe ceased in 1973, with just 480 examples completed, about 1/3 of the volume of the contemporary Ghibli. True to Maserati form, the Mexico offers an intriguing blend of race-bred performance and innovation complimented by luxurious practicality.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Produced in 1967, this excellent Mexico arrived in the US in 1980 from its native Italy. In 2004, it was acquired by an enthusiast who enjoyed this exceptional Maserati in both Miami and Mexico City. During its time in Mexico City, this lovely Mexico was profiled in Automovil Magazine. Presented in the classic combination of Rosso over rich Cinghiale hides, this well-presented example has recently benefitted from a repaint and a cosmetic and mechanical refresh. The luxuriant leather interior bares a lovely patina and the large wooden dash has been well cared for. Mechanically, this coupe has been well maintained throughout its life and has been tastefully modified for enhanced reliability and performance, including electronic ignition. Since its arrival in the US 35 years ago, chassis 106 has benefitted from careful maintenance and detailed records have been kept, which accompany the car. Additionally, this handsome Mexico is complete with a Certificato di Origine from Maserati Classiche.

This well cared for and wonderfully presented example of Maserati's rare four-seat coupe is fit to be enjoyed and driven enthusiastically and proudly displayed at many Italian car events by its next owner.
