The Maserati Shamal is A Whirlwind of a Car

The Maserati Shamal is A Whirlwind of a Car

The Maserati Shamal is a rare sighting and one of the most exciting cars produced by Maserati in the modern age.

A "shamal" is a potent desert wind that boils the Arabian peninsula in summer, driving sandstorms and heat.

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.

A Visit to EuroClassix Cars

The evergreen tease of the new Giulia has sparked renewed interest in Alfa Romeo in the United States. After Alfa Romeo left the US in 1995 amid low interest and overall sales, the only Italian cars available stateside were the Lamborghini, Maserati, and Ferrari supercars that were well above "modest." That said, even when there were not going to be any more state-side Alfa Romeos available, it didn't matter to the die-hard Alfa drivers. Those who really liked Alfas really liked Alfas and it was obvious the passion was not going anywhere. Thanks to them, we can still see Alfas out in the wild. I have been lucky to see some of them roaming around the Bay Area now and again, many of them from the early 90s.
