The Shamal was introduced by Maserati on December 17, 1989, named after shamal, a hot summer wind that blows in large areas of Mesopotamia. The Shamal was designed by Marcello Gandini, famed for designing the Lamborghini Countach.

The center pillar acts as a roll bar and is always finished in black, a distinguishing characteristic of the Shamal.

The two-seat interior of the Shamal features extended leather seat cushions, temperature control and the famous Maserati oval clock, which is situated in the centre of the dashboard. The gear lever is finished in elm.

The front-engined Shamal is powered by a 3.2-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing some 325bhp with a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h) and a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 5.3 seconds

It has a six-speed manual transmission and an electronic active suspension control system. This system updates the adjustment on each wheel, based on road conditions and the level of comfort desired.

The final year of production for the Shamal was 1996. Factory figures indicate that only 369 Shamals were produced between 1989 and 1996.

This car was originally supplied by Meridian, the official Maserati importer at the time on the 23rd March 1994. The car is described by the vendor to be in excellent condition throughout with only 22,000 miles on the clock. The car has been with the vendor since 1997 and has been impeccably maintained; supplied with the original sale documentation, service history from Meridian Maserati and the original brochures. The car is supplied with a V5 document and a current MoT certificate valid until May 2007.
