With just 46 examples built, the Ghibli 4.9 SS Spyder is among the most exclusive of all road-going Maseratis and one of the most sought-after high-performance Italian exotics of the early 1970s. These extraordinary automobiles rarely appear for sale, either at auction or privately, as most are fixtures in major collections. This particular example, with its fantastic color scheme, desirable ZF 5-speed gearbox and matching-numbers engine, is the ideal candidate for a concours-quality restoration — one that would return this most deserving car to its original splendor.
