Described by German auto publication, Zwischengas, as being “the most beautiful and most expensive Grand Touring model of the late ‘60s,” the Maserati Ghibli first debuted in 1966 with a 310hp 4.7L V8. In 1969, the Trident marque rolled out the upgraded SS-spec, a grand touring version of the Ghibli with a larger and more potent 4.9L engine that put down 330hp and could achieve speeds of 168mph.

Prior to entering production in 1969, Maserati produced a single early pre-production example of the Ghibli with the body and interior of the original 4.7L-engined model and the larger displacement SS-spec engine. After being delivered new to a buyer in the US in November of 1968, this lone Pre-Series Ghibli 4.9 SS was briefly driven for a time before ending up in a museum in Wisconsin. Adorned in its original Gem Green factory livery, this one-of-one pre-series specimen is unrestored and in immaculate condition considering its mileage (9,196 miles) and age. More than half a century after leaving the factory in Italy’s Motor Valley, this ultra-rare 1968 Maserati Pre-Series Ghibli 4.9 SS has surfaced for resale through Koch Klassik Automobil in Heilbronn, Germany where its price is available upon request.
