For the origins of the Maserati Kyalami we must go back to 1972. That year, at the Turin Motor Show, DeTomaso Automobili launched their 'Longchamp', a two-door coupe. By 1975, Maserati was in the hands of a partnership between Alejandro DeTomaso and GEPI. Given Maserati's financial restraints, his solution was to call in Pietro Frua's design studio in Turin to re-style the Longchamp and so was born the Kyalami. The Kyalami, factory designated the Tipo 129 and launched it at the Turin Motor Show in 1976. The Kyalami didn't follow the Maserati Mistral, Ghibli and Khamsin tradition of naming models after a wind, but followed another tradition of naming its cars after the scene of its racing successes. This model was named after one of the world's great racetracks, Kyalami in South Africa, where in 1967 a Maserati-engined Cooper, driven by Pedro Rodriguez, won the South African Grand Prix; the Cooper Maserati was powered by a 12 cylinder Tipo 10/F1 engine. This very rare righthand drive Maserati was built in 1980. In its production run from 1976 to 1983, over 200 Kyalami's were built, of which only 43 were imported into the UK in righthand drive. Presented in red with a tan interior, it is reported to be in good condition throughout with the vendor having had the fuel system restored and work carried out to the suspension and brakes, the engine runs very smoothly and the rare five speed ZF manual gearbox changes easily. An rare opportunity to buy a much sought after righthand drive classic Maserati.
