If you’re a fan of vintage cars, the 1960s produced some of the most innovative and captivating designs, and a prime example is the 1967 Maserati Ghibli 4.7 Coupé by Ghia now up for auction at RM Sotheby’s. This exceptional vehicle features a unique chassis and engine, with an early production sequence from the Ghibli’s inaugural year, making it a highly distinctive and coveted classic Maserati.

The 1967 Maserati Ghibli 4.7 Coupé by Ghia from RM Sotheby’s boasts an original and rare factory-correct Rame Metallizzato paint finish, setting it apart from other cars on the market. The upcoming auction at RM Sotheby’s Monaco has generated substantial interest due to this distinctive feature. Launched with great acclaim at the 1966 Turin Motor Show, the Maserati Ghibli’s sleek design by Giorgetto Giugiaro coupled with the potent 4.7-liter quad-cam V-8 engine established it as a top-tier grand tourer of its time.

UNIQUE VINTAGE APPEAL

This vehicle perfectly embodies the vintage sports car aesthetic, ideal for enthusiasts seeking a dose of old-school charm. Named after the North African desert winds, the Ghibli lived up to its performance promise thanks to a 310-horsepower engine with four carburetors, enabling it to reach a remarkable top speed exceeding 164 mph, a significant achievement for that era.

The 1967 Maserati Ghibli 4.7 Coupé by Ghia at RM Sotheby’s features its original matching-numbers chassis and engine, adorned in the factory-correct Rame Metallizzato paint, along with Campagnolo knock-off forged wheels and distinctive Sebring-style mirrors. The interior design remains authentic to the period, boasting early model characteristics like Smiths instruments, a fine wood-rimmed steering wheel, stainless steel dashboard accents, and classic toggle switches.

The comprehensive history file includes essential documents such as the factory order sheet, final tests data, technical specifications, and delivery records, offering valuable insights to the vehicle’s provenance. Acquiring this exceptional 1967 Maserati Ghibli 4.7 Coupé by Ghia presents a rare opportunity to own a meticulously preserved early model Ghibli that encapsulates the enduring allure of Maserati’s premier grand tourer.
