Presented in 1963 at the Turin Motor Show, the Maserati Mistral was manufactured until 1970. The Mistral bears the internal code number “Tipo 109” and will be baptized, during its official presentation, “3500 GT 2 places”. It replaced the 3500 GT.

Produced in more than 900 copies, it is the most produced Maserati after the 3500 GT. From the latter, it inherits the six-cylinder in-line, derived from the 300 S, and increased to 3.7 liters on the Sebring and which will evolve up to 4 liters. The mistral received, at its launch, the engine in its 3.5 liter version already used on the 3500 GT, which developed 235 hp. The second series benefited from the engine increased to 3.7 liters developing 245 hp. The gearbox was a 5-speed ZF. The maximum speed is 233 km/h. The Mistral is the last Maserati to receive the famous 6-cylinder in-line engine with two camshafts with dual ignition derived from that of the 250 F before the switch to V8. This engine has hemispherical combustion chambers and benefited from indirect injection, a real first in the world of Italian sports cars of the time.

The Mistral was available in coupe and spider versions. The spider was produced in only 125 copies.
