The Mistral (AM 109) was built by Italian carmaker Maserati between the years 1964 and 1970. It belonged to the grand tourer class, representing the “S” (sport cars) market segment. The car was offered with hatchback coupe and convertible body shapes. The Mistral line was equipped with a choice of engines ranging from 3485-4014 cc (213.4-244.3 cubic inches) displacement, and delivering 173-206 kW (235-280 PS, 232-276 hp) of power.
The Mistral was the last Maserati cars to use their extremely successful twin-spark, double overhead cam straight six engines. Those engines had helped the Maserati 250F Grand Prix cars to victories in 8 Grand Prix races from 1954 and 1960 and even an F1 World Championship in 1957, in a Maserati driven by Juan Manuel Fangio. Later cars used more powerful V8 engines.
The 1970 Maserati Mistral 3700 Frua designed Berlina 3-door coupe was sold as a version for Europe. It used RWD (rear-wheel drive) and a manual 5-speed Transmission. It used a petrol (gasoline) engine with displacement of 3694 cm3 or 225.8 cubic inches. The top speed was 245 km/h (152 mph) as declared by the factory. It had great gearing and torque. It could accelerate from 0-60 mph in a brief 6.5 seconds and could go 0-100 km/h in just 6.9 seconds. It had a standing quarter mile drag time (402 m) of just 14.9 seconds.
Submodels were the Mistral Frua Berlina 2 Posti (1964-1970) and the Mistral Spyder 2 Posti (1964-1970). A total of 828 coupés and 125 Spyders were built. 22 of the Spyders were right hand drive. Surviving copies are extremely valued by collectors.
