After the 5000 GT and the Quattroporte, the Mexico was Maserati’s third road car to use a civilised version of the 450 S racing car’s V8 engine. It shared its basic body with the Quattroporte, although the first prototype had actually been derived from a damaged 5000GT and was powered by a 4.9-litre engine. A true four-seater, the Mexico had very elegant and refined bodywork, courtesy of Vignale. Unlike other four-seater Maserati coupés, it was not named after a race track. The name Mexico was chosen because the 5000 GT, which served as a prototype, once belonged to Mexican President Adolfo López Mateos and returned to Mexico after being unveiled at the 1965 Turin Motor Show. It was truly fitting, but also purely coincidental, that John Surtees finished the 1966 Formula One season with a convincing victory in the Mexican Grand Prix at the wheel of a Cooper-Maserati T81. Introduced at the 1966 Paris Motor Show, the Mexican production was offered with the same engine options as the Quattroporte: either a 4.2-litre or a 4.7-litre version. The chassis itself was derived from the Quattroporte with a wheelbase shortened by 11 centimetres. In total only about 482 Maserati Mexico were produced, of which only about 182 cars were powered by the big 4700 engine with 290 hp / 212 kw. This example we are offering is one of these rare and powerful 4700 examples. One has to imagine that according to Maserati the car reached a top speed of 255 km/h, which was an enormous value in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Especially for a four-seater. The car was extensively restored between 2014 and 2016. This included an overhaul of the  chassis, including new shock absorbers, springs and wishbones. The chrome trim was re-chromed and the silver paintwork was renewed. The car received a new set of Borrani wire wheels and the original interior was gently reupholstered in parts. The last major inspection was carried out in May 2021 by the technicians of the Koch company in Cologne. 

The car can be viewed at our premises in Germany, 33415 Verl at any time by arrangement. A lifting platform is available for this purpose.
