History car

This Maserati Mexico is one of a kind and is in great original conditions. The Mexico is a 4.2L V8, 4 weber carburetors, 5 speed ZF Gearbox, Borrani wheels with new re-built exhaust pipes. Only original 68000km, this is truly a collectors car. Full documentation.

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 4,7L 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 L V8 engine that powered the original Quattroporte I version. Production of the Mexico between 1966 and 1973 totaled 482, one with the 4,9L engine, 305 4,2 L versions and 175 4,7 L versions.
