1976-1983 MASERATI Kyalami specifications Classic and Performance Car

After De Tomaso’s takeover of Maserati, badge engineering was introduced. The De Tomaso Longchamp was slightly facelifted, fitted with the Indy V8 (initially in 4.1-litre form), and re-marketed as the Maserati Kyalami. Although this version of the Ghia-styled car looked better than the original, it was not appealing enough to bring in a significant number of new buyers. Perhaps it was the price – which had taken a significant hike over the Ford engined car it was based upon – but more likely, there was simply no market for it in the late 1970s.
