The Maserati Khamsin is a rather unusual yet admirable grand tourer that was produced from 1974 until 1982. Like all traditional Maserati’s being named after a wind, ‘Khamsin’ refers to a hot, violent gust which blows across the Egyptian desert for 50 days of the year. Despite its era, the Khamsin’s development and design is extremely impressive. The cars construction and front mid-mounted engine position created a 50/50 weight distribution which worked well with its newly improved double wishbone suspension.

The distinctive Gandini ‘’wedge’’ design incorporated some strange but surprisingly functional features, this included a Kammback, almost all glass rear end which was further characterised by a full-width glass rear panel and floating headlights, allowing good visibility. Another unique design element was a spare wheel stored beneath the front radiator as the engine was pushed so far back.

Delivered new to a Mr D.K Robson of Sunderland on 30/10/1979, this example was specified in Rosso over Beige interior. Mr Robson had the car looked after by Killinghall Garage in Harrogate along with other specialists such as Gordon Lamb and W.H Lumb Maserati. The car was then sold to its second owner in 1991, a Mr Duncan Reynolds whom owned the car until very recently, also having the car regularly maintained in his ownership.

This wonderful example is 1 of just 12 UK supplied right hand drive’s and likely to be one of the few with such an impressive provenance. With just 2 owners from new, both prominent Maserati owners club members, this is a rare opportunity to own a Khamsin with such a well-documented history. It still has its original supplying dealer rear screen sticker, sales invoice, brochure, Borelli clock instructions and even the supplying dealers matchbook for those who are sentimental. The cars history file also contains multiple invoices, previous MOT's, registration documents and even its original service book and handbook.

This car has recently had £45,000 spent on a number of items at McGrath Maserati, mainly the well-known hydraulic system featured on this car which controls the clutch, brakes, steering and seats! it requires no further preparation and is ready to be enjoyed.
