The Only Pre-Series 1968 Maserati Ghibli 4.9 SS Ever Built Is Currently For Sale

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.
