Next up in our coverage of RM Auctions‘ Battersea Evolution sale in London on October 26:

A 1967 Maserati Mistral Coupé.

Names after a cold northerly wind of Southern France, the model was first shown at Turin in November 1963.

Expected to fetch $125,000 at RM Auctions‘ Battersea Evolution sale in London

The Mistral remained in production until 1970 with only slight updates.

A pure two-seater, the car featured an impressive top speed of nearly 160 mph, with a 0–60 clock of just 6.2 seconds.

Estimated at up to $125,000 it’s far from the most expensive vehicle on offer in the stunning sale, but in terms of style it’s worth ten times as much….
