Maserati replaced its Indy model in 1973 with the new Khamsin. The Khamsin still used a unitary body although this had been styled by Bertone instead of Vignale. As with the Indy the Khamsin was intended to be a two-plus-two seater although in reality these seats were only suitable for occasional use.
The Khamsin came with 4930cc quad-cam V8 and a choice of either manual or automatic transmission. Due to the extra weight of the Khamsin top speed was "down" to 150mph, although at least power-steering was now standard. Production of the Khamsin finally finished in 1982 after 421 cars had been built.
