Very happy to have this beauty available for sale again and especially with a freshly rebuilt engine, various cosmetic bits n pieces and a new carpet set too

The Khamsin was Maserati's last heavy weight Super Car introduced in 1974 and built in tiny numbers until the last were sold in 1982 until the MC12 launched another 24 years later

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, until most recently when Kent High Performance stripped the engine and various other items - total expenditure was £30.000 or so

There was also a bare metal bodywork restoration 8 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
