STORY

The Maserati Indy is a sports car produced by the Italian car brand Maserati from 1969 to 1975. The name "Indy" was chosen in reference to Maserati's victory in the Indianapolis 500 in 1939.

The Maserati Indy was first presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1969. The vehicle was designed by Vignale, an Italian coachbuilder. The Indy was designed as a 2+2 seater, meaning it could accommodate two passengers in the front and two in the back.

The Maserati Indy was powered by a V8 engine. There were various engine versions throughout the production, including 4.2-liter and 4.7-liter variants. The power of the engine varied accordingly.

Production of the Maserati Indy began in 1969, and a total of about 1,104 units were produced by 1975. The Indy was important for Maserati as it helped expand the model range and establish the brand in the luxury and sports car class.

PERSONAL STORY

This Indy started its journey in Bavaria and is owned by the founder of 'Sport Scheck' - a Munich institution.

The previous owner acquired it from him in 1981 and kept it for over three decades alternately in Munich and in the family residence in Austria.

He restored and maintained the Indy with great care so that it had a reliable companion during the summer months.
