Released in 1972, the Maserati Khamsin was produced between 1974 and 1982 and replaced the Ghibli as the new V8 GT. With the Khamsin, Maserati switched back to the front-mounted engine layout. Although the model was powerful and offered great drivability, it wasn’t as successful as its predecessor, due to the oil crisis, stricter regulations and restrictions, and the beginning of serious speed limitations. The 2+2 coupe was designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone, and wore a classical yet edgy body, with a characteristic all-glass rear panel. Inside, the 1979 Maserati Khamsin offers great visibility to the driver and comfort thanks to options such as air conditioning, tinted powered windows, high-quality leather, and a radio. With its elaborate suspension system and hydraulically powered equipmentas a result of the Citroen ownership, the 1979 Maserati Khamsin was an advanced vehicle with appreciable performance and handling.
