38 years on, the Khamsin is sexier than ever.

Marcello Gandini's Maserati Khamsin is, in my opinion, possibly the most beautiful car Italy produced in the 1970s.  Part of the reason I bought my Dino GT4 is that it shares many of the same themes in terms of surface treatment and design detailing, yet at a more attainable pricepoint and with better performance. Click the photos below to see the entire original sales catalogue in all its retro-fantastic glory.

The model has a harmonious balance of volumes as well.
Skillfully designed car that looks just as good in person; the similarities to the Dino flatter both.

Couldn't agree more. They are fantastically proportioned, and the detailing is unquestionable as well. Not a line I would change.
