1969 Maserati Indy - interior view of the classic sports car 4-seater coupe

The Maserati Indy, officially presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1969, was a tribute to the two consecutive victories of the Maserati 8CTF race cars in the famous 500-mile race at the Indianapolis speedway in 1939 and 1940. This new car was designed by Vignale and was designed to bridge the gap between the Ghibli and the Mexico. The roof line was higher compared to the Ghibli, offering more headroom for rear passengers. Mechanicals were borrowed from the Ghibli and represented traditional Maserati technology: a 90-degree V8 engine with double overhead camshafts, semi-monocoque structure with front auxiliary frame, independent double-wishbone front suspension and a rigid rear axle with leaf springs. Standard equipment included a two-way adjustable steering column, an anti-theft steering lock, leather upholstery, tinted electric windows, reclining seats, fog lamps, a heated rear windscreen, headrests and a dashboard-mounted clock in front of the passenger. Power steering, an automatic gearbox and radio were options. In 1973, the Indy adopted the hydraulic braking system from Citroën, the then-new owner of Maserati.
