This Maserati Khamsin was finished on February 6th of 1978 and left the Modena factory fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission and painted in the shade of Tabaco with Cinghiale (wild boar) interior. It was shipped to San Francisco, California where dealer Kjell Qvale sold it new to Jim Liston. He drove it home to the Incline Village, Nevada where he kept it until 1989. He then sold it to another Reno resident with a mere 15,000 miles on the odometer. The new owner was Sam Dibitonto who kept it for 24 years when he sold it with 21,000 miles. It was bought December 10th of 2013 by the current owner who had a complete, bare metal repaint done in the Los Angeles area. The work took several years to complete and during that time, it received a European bumper conversion.

Currently, this Khamsin has 23,332 miles on its odometer.

Of the 155 Khamsins sold new in North America, 100 were fitted with the 5-speed transmission. Of these less than 30 remain in the United States as the rest have mostly been shipped to Europe.
