Beautiful classic Maserati expected to fetch a fortune at auction

A MINT Maserati is auctioned for a ridiculous amount of money because of its famous ex-owner.

The classic 1964 Maserati Mistral 3700 is the very car used on the stand at the Earls Court Motor Show that same year.

The Maserati is expected to fetch up to £550,000 when it comes under the hammer

After appearing at the London Motor Show, this Mistral was supposed to be used as a demonstrator for potential buyers, but it wasn’t to be.

Famous actress, singer and so-called “English Marilyn Monroe” Diana Dors saw the Mazzer on the stand and just had to have it.

And she did.

Dors was no stranger to the public, having featured in the press as the youngest person to own a Rolls-Royce, despite not even being old enough to drive at the time.

Without a doubt, this elegant drop top was exactly what she was looking for.

After Dors was done with that, the car was bought by an Australian and shipped to Oz in 1974.

As it had a two year restoration and is now in perfect condition. As such, experts reckon it will fetch between £475,000 and £550,000 when it goes under the hammer on May 28, 2022.

Despite being almost 60 years old, even by today’s standards, the Mistral is still no morons.

The 3.7 liter engine accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h and on to 260 km/h in just 6.2 seconds.

That’s almost as fast as the latest VW Golf GTI, so the 1964 supercar was fast.

This is one of just 14 Maserati Mistrals 3700 delivered to the UK, so a chance to buy something very rare with an especially big celebrity history.
