1972 Maserati Indy 4.2 Auto RHD For Sale

Very rare opportunity to acquire a 1972 Maserati Indy 4.2 with automatic transmission. One of only 440 4.2 litre cars (out of a total production run of 1104 units) and even rarer in RHD, this car is sure to grab the attention of any astute collector. With the prices of early Ghibli’s having already gone through the roof, the unique Indy (as a quasi little brother to the timeless Ghibli) is sure to follow suit.

This particular car is finished in a classical Azzurro Artico with black leather interior. Optioned from new with the Borg-Warner automatic gearbox, this car is a pleasure to drive in true Italian grand touring style. Has been cherished by one long term owner for the past 20 years as part of a stable of other European classic cars. Very rare to find such an honest, unrestored vehicle. The paintwork has patina consistent with the age of the car and presents very well. The interior is exactly as it left the factory, with the beautiful black leather still looking good after all these years with some aging present but never the less still original. Mileage has been minimal over the past few years, but maintenance has always been a priority. Some details of recent work include top end engine overhaul and electric water pump conversion to suit the warm Australian climate. There is also many years of history available to potential buyers.

Just like the car itself, the Maserati Indy story is unqiue. One of Viganle’s finest designs, the backstory to car’s genesis is as follows:

In 1968, at the Salone dell'Automobile di Torino, Carrozzeria Vignale unveiled the prototype of a sleek new four-seater coupé, based on Maserati's now established V8 front-engined rear wheel drive format. Alfredo Vignale had already designed the fabulous 3500GT Spyder, and the Sebring and the Mexico for Maserati as the successors to the 3500GT by Touring. In March 1969, at the Salone d'Automobile de Genève, Maserati launched the Maserati Indy, named to commemorate Maserati's great victories in the 500 mile race at Indianapolis in 1939 and 1940. The Indy was favourably received by both the press, public and fans of Maserati's fabulous GTs.

The production car differed little from the prototype first seen at Turin in 1968, save for a few minor external changes. Mechanically there were no changes from the other Maserati V8 engined cars. The engine was the now standard Maserati V8, with a cubic capacity of 4136 cc, fed by four twin-choke down-draught 42 DCNF Weber carburettors, yeilding 260 bhp at 5500 rpm giving the Indy a maximum speed of 250 kph.

Transmission was by way of a ZF 5-speed gearbox (a 3-speed Borg-Warner automatic gearbox was available as an option). Front suspension was independent with double wishbones, coil springs and an anti-roll bar while at the rear there was a live axle on leaf springs located by a single torque reaction arm restrained by another anti-roll bar. The dual circuit braking system, with four ventilated disc brakes, was servo assisted. Power assisted steering and a limited-slip differential were also available on request.

Total production of the Indy between 1969 and 1975 consisted of 1,104 cars (440 4.2-litre cars, 364 4.7-litre cars and 300 4.9-litre cars). The Maserati Indy was one of the last in a long line of traditional front-engined rear wheel drive Maseratis powered by a classic, normally aspirated, four overhead camshaft, V8 engine, the last being the Khamsin. [There were only 13 Australian delivered, factory right hand drive Maserati Indys. Of these, 7 had the 4200 engine (5 had manual transmission / 2 had automatic) and 6 had the 4700 engine (4 had manual transmission / 2 had automatic)
