In 1968, at the Turin Motor Show and specifically at the “Carrozzeria Vignale” stand, a new glossy four-seat Coupe was introduced. It was based on the then standard layout with a V8 Maserati, namely front engine and real wheel drive. Alfredo Vignale had already designed for Maserati the excellent 3500 GT Spyder, the Sebring and the Mexico. The official presentation of the Indy came in March 1969 at the Geneva Auto Salon and its name was given due to the great victories in the Indianapolis 500 of 1939 and 1940. This specific car was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain.
