Maserati's last heavy weight Super Car introduced in 1974 and built in tiny numbers until the last were sold in 1982
Penned by the inimitable Marcello Gandini, with credits to his name such as the Countach, Montreal, Urraco etc etc really a veritable Who's Who of the 1970's super cars
The Khamsin has so many trade marks of his design - just so out of the box
Even Ian Cameron (styling genius) owns one just for the purity of line
Only 22 were destined for the UK out of a total of 430 produced, and ours is one of the very last - she has full Maserati Classiche certification, issued from Modena in April 2016 and her history folder runs back to the late 1980's with rafts and rafts of invoices therein, most all of them with Bill McGrath Maserati
There was also a bare metal bodywork restoration 6 years ago, with all cavities wax injected at this time too, so structurally and cosmetically she is fabulous
The Khamsin does have Super Car performance to complement her racy looks too
The Maserati quad cam V8 is nearly 5.0 litres and pushes out 280bhp & 330ft/lbs of torque and a hearty bellow to let everybody know you are coming, whilst the academic 0 - 60mph time comes up in under 6 seconds (5.6 according to period road tests) and then nudging 170mph at her top end
All this with power steering, power brakes and clutch - against a Boxer, Countach and the V8 Vantage who all have the heaviest of clutches and only the Aston has any assistance for the steering
Seriously under rated the Khamsin is the nicest to use of the all of them
Driving them fast is more easily attained specifically of the technical expertise of the Maserati / Citroen engineers - LJK Setright was decades ahead everybody and described the Khamsin as "fast & sophisticated"
Really "out there" looking, the Khamsin is as rare as you could ever find and a snip against the current values other 1970's SuperCars
Surely this icon of 1970's design must jump up a notch or two in the £ / € / $ stakes soon - so grab one now whilst you can
