First Registration 1976, Maserati Khamsin, V8 with 4900 cc
5-Speed Manual Gearbox
Swiss Road Registration with „Veteran“ entry
Complete Engine Rebuilt in 2020
First sight of the Maserati Khamsin. The best way to approach the eye-catching silhouette is from the rear. The glass rear end with seemingly free-floating tail lights is especially striking. From the front, the first thing you notice are the now dying-out pop-up headlights in the flat, pointed front end and a continuously rising shoulder line. A gracefully designed fastback roof structure adds space for the passengers.
It is hard to believe that the Lamborghini Countach and the Maserati Khamsin were drawn by one and the same designer: Marcello Gandini. Moreover, both Bertone supercars started production almost in the same year – the Countach in 1974, the Khamsin in 1973.
Under its flat front bonnet, the Khamsin was powered by a mighty double-camshaft V8. The magnificent Maserati V8 engine, which effortlessly produces an impressive 320 bhp from 4.9 litres of capacity at only 5,500 rpm and is lubricated with twelve litres of oil from the dry sump lubrication system. The performance recorded at the time is still impressive today: acceleration from zero to one hundred in 6.6 seconds and a top speed of 272 kilometres per hour!
This Maserati Khamsin has been in the same ownership 23 years and has been driven regularly. Existing invoice receipts of over CHF 90’000 also prove exceptional car care without consideration of costs. In 2020, a complete engine rebuild was done at the Maserati specialist Garage Limacher. Only about 430 Khamsin were built during the full production time from 1973 to 1982 and therefore this Maserati Khamsin is representing a very rare opportunity.
