1970 Maserati Ghibli SS 4.9 Coupé by Ghia

In 1970 Maserati added a 4.9-liter engine to the Ghibli stable, resulting in the most powerful road going Maserati ever, the Ghibli SS. Chassis no. 1668 completed assembly in April 1970. The car was factory equipped with a five-speed ZF gearbox and bolt-on Campagnolo wheels. Ghibli was named after a fierce wind. It proved a worthy competitor against the Ferrari 275 GTB and Lamborghini 400 GT, its chief rivals.
It is believed that just 250 Ghiblis were SS models.
The SS model featured a 335-hp 4.9-liter engine with solid-state ignition, four Weber 42 DCNF carburetors, and a top speed of 175 mph. In total, just 1,149 coupes and 125 spiders were produced. This fully restored example made $250k
