1982 was the last year of production for the Maserati Khamsin. The model was first revealed at the 1972 Turin Motor Show and entered production in 1974. This 2+2 coupe grand tourer was the successor to the popular Ghibli, as the next V8 automobile offered by Maserati. The Khamsin was actually powered by the latest iteration of the V8 unit, that was previously fitted on the Ghibli SS. Developed under Citroen’s ownership, the Khamsin featured some of the equipment made by the French manufacturer, such as the power clutch, power steering and power brakes, all using Citroen’s hydraulically powered systems. Marcello Gandini, who created an elegant and edgy design that gave the model a modern look while conserving Maserati’s classical lines, penned the body. Inside, the 1982 Maserati Khamsin offered some comfort thanks to high quality leather, tinted powered windows, a radio, air conditioning and an optional 3-speed automatic transmission.
