In Libyan Arabic, Ghibli is the scorching southwesterly wind that cuts through the Libyan desert. In Italy, Ghibli is the 2+2 grand touring machine penned by a young Giorgetto Giugiaro and built by Maserati. Introduced in 1966 at the Turin Motor Show, the Ghibli was powered by a 4.7-liter V8 driving the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed gearbox. The Ghibli 4.9 SS was introduced in 1969, with a stroked 4.9-liter V8 making 330 horsepower and 355 lb-ft of torque, enabling a top speed of 174 MPH — the fastest road-going Maserati ever at the time. This 1970 Ghibli 4.9 SS proves that time can stop, as Giugiaro's long hood, short deck lines remain timeless in gold over a white interior. In incredible condition inside and out, the car will go to auction during Gooding & Co's Scottsdale auction in January 2022.
