Maserati – Mistral Spyder

The open spider version of the Mistral was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1964. Its elegant design was further improved in the convertible version by Giovanni Michelotti, while the bodies were built by Vignale in Turin. The spider version Mistrals had mainly a steel body, while the front and rear bonnets and doors were made of alloy. An extremely rare hardtop, also built in aluminum, was designed as an option for this car. The Mistral Spyder was produced in only 124 units and today represents one of the rarest and most sought after models among the Classic Maserati GTs.

Vehicle Overview

Maserati launched the Mistral as the successor to the Sebring in 1963. Pietro Frua designed a body with extraordinary lines that looked modern and somehow different. The domed glass tailgate in particular needed some getting used to. Today, however, the Mistral is considered one of the most beautiful and sophisticated designs by Frua and even Maserati. The open-top version was released a year later as the Mistral Spyder, for which Giovanni Michelotti designed on the original version by Frua and built by Vignale. The Mistral Spyder was equipped with the familiar Maserati double cam, straight six engine that was originally used in motor racing, originally with 3.5-litre, then 3.76-litre and finally 4-litre displacement. 125 of the convertibles were produced until 1970, making it one of the rarest and most coveted jewels in the Maserati crown today!
