Maserati Khamsin
Production of this fabulous front-engined supercar started in 1974 although it was first seen in Paris some two years earlier. It was named after an Egyptian wind it was crafted in steel with its glazed rear panel being a standout.

Air-conditioning was standard in these cars and they also boasted an adjustable steering column and hydraulic seats. Every engine was the classic Maserati four-cam V8 which was mounted well back which resulted in very even weight distribution when the car's tank was filled.

There were 4.2 and 4.7 liter versions with its torque being outstanding - an amazing 481.4Nm at 4,000 revs. Built as a successor to the Ghibli and Indy, the Khamsin offered double-wishbone suspension, Citroen hydraulics for its steering, brakes, clutch and pop-up headlights.

This car was viewed as a real supercar and is a unique and highly collectable car.
