1969 – 1973
Launched at the 1968 Turin Motor Show, the 2-seat Giugiaro-designed Ghibli Spyder was a particularly refined take on the original model. Its fabric top folded under a flush fitting tonneau cover behind the seats and could be raised or lowered in a handful of minutes. In production through 1973, only 125 Ghibli Spyders were built: 45 of them were Ghibli SS Spyders, equipped with the more powerful 4.9-litre V8 engine that had made the Ghibli SS the fastest Maserati road car ever produced, with its top speed of 280 km/h. The Ghibli SS Spyder is to this day among the most prized Maserati car by Modena enthusiasts for its rarity and powerful performance.
