1966 / 1970
Presented at the Geneva Motor Show, it was to become the latest evolution in the dynasty of in-line 6-cylinder engines that had begun with the 3500 GT and earlier with the A6 series, or even with the pre-war 6CM Grand Prix car. The record speed was 255 km/h, no doubt helped by the car’s light weight and aerodynamic bodywork. Chrome-rimmed side vents adorn the car’s front wings. Towards the end of production, alloy wheels with the same design as those on the Ghibli were available on request. One of the 828 coupés assembled throughout production was reserved for Sir Peter Ustinov.
