The Maserati Mistral, named after a cold northerly wind of southern France, was the successor to the iconic 3500 GT. It was the first in a series a classic Maseratis to be given the name of a wind and the last model from the "Casa del Tridente" to be equipped with a straight six cylinder engine before Maserati moved on to V8 engines for their production cars.
It was designed by Pietro Frua and was first shown in a preview at the Salone Internazionale dell'Automobile di Torino in November 1963. It is generally considered as one of the most beautiful Maseratis of all time.
The engine was a direct descendent of the 6-cylinder unit mounted in the Tipo 350 S sports racer and boasted a close relationship with the engine that powered the Tipo 250F F1 single-seater, driven by Juan Manuel Fangio, to Maserati's one and only F1 World Championship in 1957.
