Maserati produced their Kyalami model between 1976 and 1981 with a total of just 200 built. They offered two engines: a 4.2 V8 producing 265ps which was subsequently replaced by a more powerful 4.9 Litre rated at 280ps (206 kW or 276 hp). Transmission was offered in either 3-speed Borg warner Automatic or, the preferred 5 speed ZF manual. This particular example is number 175/200 and was produced late in the run with a production date of 29.05.1981. It is also number 53/75 total 4.9 versions produced and has the mentioned ZF 5 speed manual gearbox. Chassis number AM129/49*0286* was initially registered in Switzerland on the 5th of June 1981 and comes with its original leather Maserati leather wallet and, more importantly an incredible service history booklet with no less than 18 Maserati stamps, confirming one of the best pedigrees we’ve ever encountered at Cathedral Classics. The original Swiss owner, Herr Peter Krüger, personally retained the car until November 1991 when it is sold to his company PK Betriebs AG in Bern, Switzerland. In 2000 the car is purchased by a prominent German collector has never been registered in Germany but, all tax and duties have been paid in Germany, so further European registration would be fine. Kyalami’s are a rare sight these days and this is quite clearly one of the best available – if not the best! Sought after engine and gearbox combination; a superb history file; just three owners and two registered owners; 54k documented kilometers and in sublime condition.
