The Mexico was named after the Maserati Formula One Gran Prix win in that country. With conservative coach work from Vignale, this 2 door 2 + 2 car is quite handsome. The exterior is a lot more pleasing than the Quattroporte with a much lower roof line. Power came from either a 4.2 liter or 4.7 liter V8 engine. Most had a ZF 5-speed gearbox, although a few automatics were offered. Power steering is a desirable option on this 3,400 pound vehicle. Most cars were equipped with Borrani wire wheels although some late cars have solid Campagnolo wheels. The interior of the Mexico is nicely laid out with the dash facia covered with wood paneling. The body on the Mexico is made of steel, so rust is always a consideration when looking for a Mexico.
The Mexico is probably the most attractive 2 + 2 Maserati, offering comfort and ample storage space for four. A total of 250 Mexicos were built.
