The Maserati Shamal is a rare sighting and one of the most exciting cars produced by Maserati in the modern age. This Shamal is a tight and exciting coupe driven by an exceptional 3.2 liter DOHC 4-valve, twin turbo V8 spinning up to 326 HP. Notable performance marks are 0-60 runs at 5.3 seconds and a top velocity near 170 mph.
The story behind the Shamal starts with the BiTurbo V6 of the 1980’s, a model with a checkered reputation that almost finished off Maserati. Desperate to regain lost momentum, Alejandro de Tomaso, then head of Maserati, brought in design star Marcello Gandidni to refresh the platform’s styling, and tasked engineering to develop a state-of-the-art twin turbo V8. The result was a dramatic and original super coupe 2+2 with outstanding performance offered in Europe for around $100K. The Shamal did restore the company’s sporting reputation, but had little effect on salvaging the bottom line as only 369 examples were produced over the six year production run.
The interior is well appointed with plush Recaro seats, a tannery’s worth of leather and luxury trimmings. The driving position is close coupled and arms out in the best Italian tradition. There is a comfortable rear seat and a reasonable generous boot to provide ample real world usability.
Quite rare worldwide and virtually unknown in the US the Shamal is a true exotic.
