Maserati Indy 4200
First registration 07.1970
Swiss road registration with veteran entry
This beautiful Maserati Indy 4200 has been in its last ownership for over 20 years and has always been perfectly maintained and cared for. During this time the engine was completely overhauled as well as the suspensions, front and rear axle, brakes, steering, lighting and trim parts fully restored. The bodywork and electrics have been partially restored and the carburetor has been overhauled. The car is matching numbers, veteran approved and stands with new tires in very well cared for collector condition.
It had everything to impress the young sports car enthusiasts of the time, who flattened their noses against its side windows: an elegant shape with fastback rear, a noble, leather-covered, light-flooded interior, a speedometer with “300 km/h” on the right stop and a rumbling V8 exhaust sound when it was started. It was hardly less convincing than the Ghibli built in parallel – the Maserati Indy. A four-seater sports car produced by Italian automaker Maserati from 1969 to 1975. It was the last Maserati to be developed and introduced before Citroën took over the plant.
The Indy, so named in honor of the two Maserati victories in the Indianapolis 500-mile race, which admittedly dated back to 1939 and 1940, was first shown by Maserati at the 1968 Turin Motor Show as a prototype with a body by Alfredo Vignale. The production version made its debut at the 1969 Geneva Motor Show.
In the summer of 1970, Auto Motor und Sport tested an Indy 4200, determining a top speed of 247 km/h, slightly more than the competing Ferrari 365 GT 2+2. The tester’s conclusion was, “Most sporty cars are either four-seaters or beautiful. The Indy is both.”
From 1968 to 1975, a total of 1,104 examples of all versions of the Indy were produced, making it one of the most successful Maserati models.
