Description
The clean lines that characterized the Ghibli were a visual delight, and firmly established Giugiaro’s reputation as a master in automotive design. The proportions were classic, and the front engine configuration-with a long hood and steeply raked windscreen-was perfectly adapted for an open-top version. The Ghibli Spyder was strictly a two-seater; its fabric roof folded away neatly underneath a rear deck panel behind the seats. A stunning factory hardtop with large windows made the car a practical companion for all seasons, although only between 20 and 25 Ghibli Spyders were ever sold with it, making it an accessory-like the car itself-that is in high demand among collectors today. Along with the Maserati Simun concept car, the Ghibli Spyder was one of the last projects Giugiaro worked on for Ghia in 1967 before setting up his own studio, Italdesign. Like the coupe model, the Ghibli Spyder was available with a 4.7-liter V8 engine, while the more powerful Spyder SS featured a 4.9-liter version. With 335 hp and a 168 mph top speed to match its stunning looks, the SS was one of the most desirable sports cars in the world, and also one of the most expensive at the time. Of just 125 Ghibli Spyders sold over the five years the model was available, one-fifth were to SS specification. An automatic gearbox could be fitted upon request, and a significant number of Ghiblis were sold with it, as the United States was the model’s main market. At the Turin Motor Show in late 1970, minor changes were introduced to the Ghibli design, with slightly revised headlights, dashboard and headrests.
