Maserati Mistral

The Maserati Mistral began production in 1963 but ended in 1970. Designed by Pietro Frua and Giovanni Michelotti, this certain model was one of the first to be named after a certain wind. The name Mistral is related to a colder northerly wind of Southern France, and was followed by the Ghibli (which is also named after a wind). As one of the last models of the casa del Tridente series, it had the renowned twin-spark which everyone was familiar with. With 5 speed acceleration, and four wheel disk brakes, the Mistral encompassed a smooth speed and high tech braking system.
