MASERATI SECTION WITHIN FERRARICHAT FORUM

Strange as it may seem this has now been the best forum worldwide for classic Maseratis and the "Maserati Khamsin" thread (discussion) within it is now at over 6000 posts and over 640000 views. More importantly many Khamsin owners and connoisseurs share information, advice and camaraderie in that thread, one in which there is a good positive courteous atmosphere with truly worthy contributions.

VIDEOS

KHAMSIN TEST DRIVE BY JAY LENO
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en0vS29sUF8

In 2013 I suggested to famous television host and car enthusiast extraordinaire Jay Leno that he get together with Doug Magnon owner of the Riverside Museum near Los Angeles to try his superb fly yellow Khamsin and so he did. This is the most elaborate Khamsin video in existence. Poignantly Doug, who did a lot for the appreciation of Maserati history in the US and was very kind to me, passed away in early 2015 and is greatly missed by the classic Maserati community.

INTERVIEW OF YOURS TRULY ON MASERATI THE CITROEN YEARS 1968-1975 BOOK
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjysRfuT9Yo

In 2012 some months before the book was printed my publisher Doug Blair and I were wondering who to ask to write the foreword and we felt Jay Leno, being both a Maserati and Citroen collector and American opinion leader was the ideal person and he kindly accepted. Then he went one step further and decided it was worth an interview which took place in April 2013. So enjoy my 12 minutes of Hollywood fame (actually it was filmed in Burbank), Jay asked very pertinent questions and somehow I did not make a fool of myself:-)

KHAMSIN MODEL AND KHAMSIN QUARANTA
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sh_NUhOrLss

A very nice 2012 video by a German enthusiast and Khamsin owner and his lady which begins with a presentation of the Khamsin, interviews at the factory with the oldtimers involved such as Ermanno Cozza and then coverage of KHAMSIN QUARANTA the event I organized in 2012 with my publisher, 27 Khamsins, Marcello Gandini its designer (for Bertone), Maserati Classiche, the prototype, the Khamsin spyder all gathering in Burgundy for a memorable event and the best weekend of my life so far:-)

MASERATI KHAMSIN IN MOTION
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=302q4_CdnFU

Very much humbled by the professional standards of Jay Leno's video this is one I arranged of my own ex Khamsin in 2007, back then there was not a single video online of a Khamsin...in motion hence the name. Short with no voice over. I was on the other side of the Atlantic when this was filmed.

MASERATI KHAMSIN TEST DRIVE

Of much higher quality than mine this is another similar video with no voice over.

You don't need to speak Portuguese to understand that the journalist is enthused by the only Khamsin in Brazil:-)
