Vehicle Description

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Paris event, 5 February 2020.
Estimate:
€130,000 - €170,000

  • Offered from the Poster Car Collection
  • Retains its original engine
  • Includes heritage certificates from Maserati Classiche and invoices dating to 1989
  • Well-preserved older restoration


The upgraded Ghibli SS that Maserati introduced in 1970 featured an enlarged 4.9-litre engine and an array of comfort amenities, including standard air conditioning. This fine mid-production example benefits from factory documentation sourced from Maserati Classiche, as well as a deep file of invoices while under American ownership.

Chassis no. 2110 was built in February 1971 and delivered at the end of the month to Thepenier, the well-known marque distributor in Saint-Cloud, in western Paris. Finished in black paint over Cinghiale leather, the Ghibli was ordered for Edouard de Cazalet, a banker who eventually relocated to Washington, DC, when he began working for the World Bank.

The Maserati was then sold in the 1980s to Richard Grinstead of Wylie, South Carolina, and he gradually performed a complete restoration that refreshed the car both mechanically and cosmetically. After passing in 1995 to Richard Pew of Arlington, Virginia, the Ghibli was sold in 2006 to the esteemed collector Joe Corbaccio of Hershey, Pennsylvania, before being shipped to the UK, where it resides today.

Currently displaying 63,656 kilometres, this Maserati retains the original V-8 engine and colour scheme, and it would make a fabulous addition to any assemblage of European GT models, sure to stoke the passions of marque enthusiasts worldwide.
