Auction Block: 1966 Maserati Mexico 4.7 Coupe By Vignale

Maserati is an iconic automotive manufacturer hailing from the close-cropped cobblestone streets of Italy. But in 1966, the company’s newest vehicle channeled inspiration from a North American country far, far away. These unique vehicles — known as the Maserati Mexico — were only produced for six years, and now, one of the 485 has resurfaced on RM Sotheby’s.

The 1966 Maserati Mexico 4.7 Coupe you see here is the 13th of 485 classic vehicles to have ever been put into circulation, and one of only 175 to be equipped with the company’s 290-horsepower, 4.7-liter DOHC V8 engine. As such, this immaculately-kept “silver surfer” is sure to enamor collectors and viewers, alike, thanks to its rebuilt engine, original twin-throat 38 DCNL5 Weber carburetors, and reconstituted dash and interior wood trim. After receiving a comprehensive rebuild from Mike Wilson Restorations in Visalia, California, the car was sent to Abingdon West Ltd. in Fallbrook for yet another mechanical and cosmetic touch up, resolving any issues with its Opalescent Blue metallic exterior, and cognac leather accents. A ZF five-speed manual transmission, Borrani wire wheels, and Talbot side-view mirrors complement the Mexico’s nostalgic style, while modern implementations like air conditioning and power windows depart from the analog ideologies of the era. If you’re taken aback by the Maserati’s beauty, head to RM Sotheby’s website, where it’s slated for auction at an estimated $125,000+.

Purchase: $125,000+
