Description

The second in our trio of books this covers the turbulent 1970s. New owners Citroen company influenced the Maserati models with a new engine being developed for the Citroen SM. However, by 1975 the plan was to put Maserati into liquidation. Fortunately rescue came in the form of Alesandro de Tomaso who put the company back on its feet. The 1970s models built on the success of the Indy in the late 1960s. The Bora, Kyalami and later Quattroporte were V8-powered while the V6 was put to good use in the Merak. The Bora had the distinction of being the company's first road-going, mid-engined car. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, new model introductions, technical and specification data, driving impressions, and touring. Models covered include: Ghibli, Bora, Indy 4.2, Indy 4.7, Ghibli SS, Merak, Khamsin, Merak SS, Kyalami, Quattroporte.
