1975 Maserati Khamsin s/n AM120US1012, engine no. AM 115/10/49 1012 Silver with Red Leather Interior The Khamsin is an often-overlooked but fascinating Italian classic that combines a great set of attributes to make a desirable and unique classic. Distinctively styled, rare, usable, and technically sophisticated, the Khamsin ticks all the right boxes. It is the epitome of angular 1970s design, and was styled by Marcello Gandini at Bertone, and had a wonderfully crisp, angular, and well-proportioned design with a host of interesting details, including glass rear panel and asymmetrical hood vents. The mechanical specification was also exciting, with the larger 4.9 liter version of Maserati’s famous quad cam V8, which was derived from the 450S race car, ZF dogleg 5-speed manual gearbox (or an optional 3-speed automatic), and independent suspension all around. The engine was mounted well-back in the chassis to provide ideal weight distribution. Because the Khamsin was developed during Citroen’s ownership of Maserati, the car incorporated the same unique hydraulic system that was also featured in the Bora. This powered the steering, brakes, and headlamps and provided light control force
