The Featured Marque at Keeneland: Maserati
This year's Keeneland Concours d'Elegance presented Maserati as their Featured Marque. I couldn't think of a better way to finish out the week than by showing some of the models manufactured between the 1960s and the 1980s. First up was perhaps the most famed of the Maseratis, a 1972 Ghibli SS Coupe which had a 4.9 L V8 that pushed a top speed of 155 mph.
Next to it was a 1970 Ghibli Spyder which is one of only 125 droptops ever built, a 1980 Merak SS which sported a mid mounted V6 engine and has only around 30,000 original miles, a 1973 Indy 4900 which was one of the final 30 built during the time when Citroen owned Maserati, and a 1965 Mistral Coupe which was the last car to use the 6 cylinder overhead cam engine originally designed for racing.
