Known History

On the Vignale stand at the "Salone di Torino" in 1965 there appeared an original 2-door 4-seater prototype designed by Giovanni Michelotti monted on a Maserati tubular chassis with a 4,9 litre V8 engine.

 

It's appearance at the "Salone di Torino" was very well received, so much that Maserati immediately made plans to put a version into limited production. The production Mexico, designated "Tipo AM112" by the factory, was a derivation of that original prototype, was first displayed at the Paris Motor Show a year later.

 

The Mexico was powered by a 4,7 litre V8 engine (slightly lower in capacity than that of the prototype) producing 290 bhp at 5000 rpm, this gave the car a top speed of between 240 and 250 kph.

In 1969, in the Maserati tradition, the Mexico was also made available with a "smaller" engine. This time the 4,2 litre V8 engine that powered the original Quattroporte I version. Production of the Mexico between 1966 and 1973 totalled 482, one with the 4,9 litre engine, 305 4,2 litre versions and 175 4,7 litre versions.

 

This Mexico has originally been delivered in Switzerland to Mr. J. Ostersetzer. He bought the car at 28 March 1969. After a complete restoration in the late 90s in Italy, he sold the car to one of our clients. In the period 2003-2005 the car has completely been restored. The car has lots of original details, like Maserati radio, new original brakes, power steering and Michelin XWX tires. The car comes with its complete history and a fully documented restoration story which is done by Geert Jan Peeters (Kampen, The Netherlands). A complete rebuilt engine has been fitted (done by Guisesppe Gandini, Modena, Italy). Only 1,000 kms since! Other technically things are done by "Real Art on Wheels".

 

This might be the best Mexico for sale at the moment.
