From 1971 the two new versions, destined for the North American market were renamed the Indy America. A 4.9-litre engine was added to the range. It is the same power unit as the Ghibli SS but with a slightly lower power output of 320 bhp (against the Ghibli's 335 bhp) giving the Indy a top speed of 170 mph (280 kph).
4.2: £8,502 (incl. P.T.)
4.7: £8,852 (incl. P.T ).
This one belongs to the 'big league' of international cars - in price, performance and the sheer exotic appeal of its name. Like the Maserati Sebring, it is named after a classic American race, but is very much a fast touring car with luxury appointments rather than a sports car built mainly for speed. There is a choice of engine, 4.2 or 4.7 titre, both of them four-cam V8s with outputs of 260 and 290 bhp respectively. The bigger one is good for a top speed of around 160 miles an hour and 0-100 in under 18 seconds. There is seating for four, in thick carpet and quality hide surroundings.
