1970 MASERATI MEXICO (LHD) For Sale in London For Sale

Maserati Mexico (LHD)

Superb Example
1 of just 175 examples produced with a 4.7 litre engine
Equipped with rare centre lock Borrani aluminium wire wheels
Interior fully retrimmed
Bare metal respray

Our Mexico is one of just 175 examples produced with the large 4.7 litre engine, finished in Burgandy and a full cream interior. This particular car has seen much work consisting of a full mechanical overhaul, a bare metal respray, an interior retrim completed to the highest standard.

It is equipped with all options including rare center lock Borrani aluminium wire wheels, air conditioning, power steering and power windows.

Introduced at the 1966 Rimini Concorso d'Eleganza, the Mexico, much like the Ghibli Maserati introduced in 1967, marked a notable shift in Maserati's design language and engines. Named in commemoration of John Surtees' victory in the 1966 Mexican Grand Prix, the new four-seat Maserati featured a thunderous V8 engine developed from the type first seen in the venerable 450S racecar. The Mexico offered exciting performance and pleasing Vignale coupe lines mixed with the luxurious practicality of having room for four adults.

The Maserati Mexico's design derived from a 2+2 prototype bodywork shown on the Vignale stand at the October 1965 Salone di Torino and built upon a 4.9-litre 5000 GT chassis, rebodied after it had been damaged. As the car after the show was sold to Mexican president Adolfo Lopez Mateos, the model became known as the Mexico. By coincidence, John Surtees won the Mexican Grand Prix on a Cooper-Maserati T81 the following year. Vignale's prototype was so well received that Maserati immediately made plans to put a version into production.

The production Maserati Mexico debuted in August 1966 at the 20° Concorso internazionale di eleganza per auto in Rimini, while its international première was at the October Paris Motor Show. It was built on the first generation Quattroporte chassis with a wheelbase shortened by 11 cm (4.3 in).

Originally powered by a 4.7-litre 90° V8 fed by four twin-choke 38 DCNL5 Weber carburetors that produced 290 bhp, the car managed to turn out a top speed between 240–250 km/h (149–155 mph). In 1969, however, contrary to Maserati tradition, the Mexico was also made available with a smaller engine, the 4.2-litre V8 engine.

Apart from the smaller engine option the Mexico underwent few changes during its lifetime. Its luxurious interior included a rich leather seating for four adults, electric windows, wooden dashboard, iodine  headlights and air conditioning as standard. Automatic transmission, power steering and a radio were available as optional extras. The 4.7-litre version was fitted with 650x15" Borranichrome wire wheels and the 4.2-litre version with steel disc wheels. When leaving the factory all Maserati Mexicos originally fitted Pirelli Cinturato 205VR15 tyres (CN72). The Mexico was the first production Maserati to be fitted with servo assisted ventilated disc brakes on all four wheels.

In May 1967, under commission from the German concessionaire Auto Koenig for one client, Herr Rupertzhoven, Maserati built a 'Mexico' similar to Vignale's original prototype design but was the work of Frua. Appearing like a 4-seat Mistral and built on the same tubular chassis as the 3500 GT (2600 mm wheelbase), this prototype 'Mexico' was fitted with the Mistral's six-cylinder 3.7-litre Lucas fuel-injected engine. It was finished in Oro Longchamps with a black leather interior. Its dashboard came from the Quattroporte.
