Maserati Ghibli SS Spyder (1970–73)

The original V8-powered Maserati Ghibli (Tipo 115) was a two-door, two-seater GT debuted in 1966. It outsold its two biggest rivals, the Ferrari Daytona and the Lamborghini Maura. The Ghibli's steel body, renowned for its low, shark-shaped nose, was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. Giugiaro, who today heads his own company ItalDesign, worked at coachbuilder Ghia when he designed the Ghibli. The convertible Ghibli Spyder went into production in 1969. They were relatively rare, and were outnumbered by the coupés by almost ten to one. The slightly more powerful Ghibli SS was released in 1970. The Ghibli went out of production in 1973.

Only 48 units built. The Ghibli SS Spyder is the most sought after variation of the successful Generation 1 Ghibli models. Powered by a 4.9 litre V8 engine that produced 350 hp. It came with an optional steel hardtop. (wikipedia)
