It has been reported that the Mexico Speciale was sold to Kenny Wagner of Texas, in whose hands the car remained until 1978.
Mr. Mandarano, a first-rank Maserati enthusiast and founder of Concorso Italiano, must have truly cherished his time with the one-off Mexico, as it was not until 1999 that the unique gran turismo was sold to Alfredo Brenner who was, at the time, assembling a comprehensive collection of coachbuilt Maseratis.
