The Maserati Mexico
A continent gobbling GT based on the Quattroporte
The Maserati Mexico is a luxury grand tourer produced by Italian car manufacturer Maserati from 1966 to 1972. The Mexico is based on the Maserati Quattroporte and was designed by Vignali. The Mexico was available as a 2-door coupe or convertible with a total of around 550 units produced.
First introduced at the 1965 Turin Motor Show, it was named after the country of Mexico where a group of wealthy Mexican businessmen had placed a large order for the car. The car was aimed at the North American market and was intended to be a more luxurious and refined alternative to the other V8-powered GTs of the era.
The Mexico features a 4.7-liter V8 engine that produces 260 horsepower and could reach 0 to 60 mph in around 7 seconds. The engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and has a top speed of around 140 mph. And with only around 550 units produced during its six-year production run, the Mexico is now considered a collectible classic and is highly sought after by enthusiasts.
