Silverstone Auctions 1972 Maserati Indy America goes on sale at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show on the 15th November 2013.
The Maserati Indy America was named so to celebrate Maserati’s victories at the Indy 500 race in the US. This classic Italian GT was first launched at the Turin Motor show in 1968 and combined space and pace, comfortably seating four people and hitting a top speed in excess of 150mph.
The Silverstone Auctions 1972 Maserati Indy America is a 4.7 Litre model, one of only 246 cars produced that year, is an original UK supplied right hand drive model and estimated at £42,000 to £50,000. Over the last 18 months the car has had new brakes and a rebuilt rear differential as part of a major restoration including a full bare metal re-spray in Rosso Corsa. The interior has also been re-trimmed in ivory leather.
Guy Lees-Milne, classic car specialist, Silverstone Auctions said: “Maserati values have recently started to rise to coincide with the centenary year of the marque in 2014 so this rare and interesting car is sure to prove a canny acquisition.”
Silverstone Auctions has sold a number of Maserati’s this year for above pre-sale estimates. A 1969 barn find Ghibli sold at the International Trophy sale in May for nearly twice its estimate, while a rare 1975 Merak, auctioned at the same sale, sold for £10,000 over estimate.
Guy added: “This is a great opportunity for someone to join the world of classic Maserati ownership and this particular model would provide fantastic motoring for any enthusiast.”
