The Khamsin is a luxurious 2+2 seater Coupe that took part of the Maserati range from 1973 to 1983. It was produced in only 435 units worldwide, although Maserati hoped to almost mass-produce it. This failure was due to the lack of public appreciation, as well as to the serious oil crisis that involved the 1970s. In the Khamsin’s aesthetic, it is possible to notice clear lines, a very low profile (only 114 centimeters in height) and retractable headlights; the dimensions are 4,44 x 1,80 meters and relate to a considerable weight of 1680kg. The Khamsin was born from an unprecedented chassis, but nevertheless equips a 320HP V8 engine inherited from the Ghibli SS combined with a 5-speed ZF manual gearbox. A 3-speed automatic and self-locking differential were available on request. To meet the increasingly stringent anti-pollution regulations enacted in the United States, the Khamsin has undergone numerous modifications, including an engine de-powering from 320 to 280HP in 1979.
