1964 – 1969
The Mistral literally brought a wind of innovation to the line of Maserati cars. Presented at the Turin Motor Show in the autumn of 1963, it marked the beginning of one of the most beloved traditions at Maserati: naming Gran Turismo cars after exotic winds. Styled by Pietro Frua, the Mistral had a much more modern look with one of Frua’s most recognizable characteristics: an exceptional dimension of the glass surfaces. It was the last Maserati car to be equipped with the glorious 6-cylinder engine, which had been the power unit of Maserati grand tourers for over 10 years.
