1971 Maserati Ghibli SS 4.9 coupe is among the half-dozen cars going to auction from a private collection. If you and your pals are still reminiscing over the classical motor era’s greatest decade, or even still sporting some of the accompanying dodgy 70s hairstyles, you will love the Maserati Ghibli SS 4.9 Coupé. This car has the typical look and feel of a 70s vintage classic and you are unlikely to come across a car with the same connections to the past anytime soon.
We admit, this car will be outside most men’s budget, but there is not much harm in looking. This luxury vintage car is so memorizing, it may even make you forget about the kids. This is because this car is Maserati’s flagship model which put them on their still-standing pedestal back when it launched in 1966.
This 1971 model is equipped with a dry-stump edition of the car manufacturer’s iconic V8 engine. This is used to fit the car’s design and fit the fairy dust underneath its low bonnet. The addition of SS in the model’s name came as a result of upgrading to the at-the-time newly available 4.9-litre engine in 1970. This SS version could deliver exceptional speeds and power. Additional perks of this vintage car included power steering and a 5-speed gearbox.
The 1971 Maserati Ghibli SS 4.9 Coupé halted production in 1972 before mass manufacturing was in force meaning that less than 1,300 models were made. Not surprising why these are in such demand today then eh?
