The ride was supple and the interior was plush, with Connolly leather enrobing the seats, suede covering the dashboard and thick carpets completing the picture.

Maserati Kyalami

www.supercars.net
Unveiled at the 1976 Geneva motor show, it revived a notchback four-seater coupé philosophy which had been discontinued with the last Mexico four years earlier, and fittingly took its name from the South-African race track where Pedro Rodriguez won the 1967 F1 Grand Prix driving a Cooper-Maserati T81.
The model remained in production until 1983 after which the Maserati range would remain without a V8 coupé until 1990 and the arrival of the Shamal.
