Design by Giorgetto Giugiaro while working for Ghia, the Ghibli made its first public appearance at the 1966 Turin motor show. To many it is said to have been Maserati's ultimate road car.

When new, the Maserati Ghibli was an exceptionally worth adversary to both the Ferrari Daytona and Lamborghini Miura. The Miura a mid-engine supercar, superb in its own right, the Ghibli was more of a rival to the Ferrari Daytona, both being front-engine GT's. In comparison, both the Ferrari and Maserati were manufactured in Coupe form with a limited production Spyder versions that followed. The Ghibli at the time was more expensive that the Daytona. Although both extremely powerful, the Ghibli has always been known as being the more usable and docile for use around town with amenities such as air conditioning as well as power steering. Docile, yes, but still a potent 170 mph GT car when provoked.

Given only 125 factory built Spyder's manufactured, much like the Daytona, many enthusiasts throughout the years made the decision to converted their Ghibli Coupes to Spyder form. This is one such Ghibli. Converted from an SS Coupe many years ago, early history is unknown. In 2010, this Ghibli was offered to Autosport Designs. Soon thereafter it was sold to a collector from Northern California and where it has been kept within the collection until only recently and its purchase once again by Autosport Designs. For the past 12 years, this Ghibli has been serviced by various Maserati dealers to keep in superb condition throughout.

This is an opportunity to have all of the open top beauty of a factory Ghibli Spyder with the power of a Ghibli SS for a fraction of the price of an original.
