And could you imagine! Our magazine has reached 20 editions. More than 5 years trying to transmit our particular vision of the car world: A somewhat subjective vision, with its own personality but always authentic and passionate. This is our way of doing things. We start with a nice report on one of the most popular subjects: classic cars. Moreover, when comparing two super GTs from my generation. Two visions of one same concept but interpreted in a “sui generis” manner by 2 of the most prestigious Italian firms: Ferrari and Maserati. We continue by analysing the Kyalami model in a more comprehensive manner. An interesting vehicle that due to its limited production has been forgotten for several decades. And talking of history and interesting vehicles, we did not want to…

ferrari 400 automatic

The 400 series replaced the 365 GT4 2+2 model at the 1976 Paris Salon, and for the first time a model with automatic transmission became available on a Ferrari production car, the 400 Automatic. The engine was one of the last evolutions of the great Colombo V12. Two banks of three Weber side draught twin choke 38 DCOE 110-111 carburettors were fitted, with twin coil and rear of engine mounted distributors, to produce a claimed 340bhp. The 400 Automatic continued in production until November 1979, during which time only 355 examples were produced, that’s why is considered a collector car nowadays. As with the 365 GT4 2+2, they were built and fully trimmed at the Pininfarina works in Turin, and then shipped to the Ferrari factory in Maranello for the installation of…

class of 1976 / ferrari 400 vs maserati kyalami

Both were presented in 1976 and are two interpretations of one same concept: the Gran Turismo 2+2. Maserati presented the Kyalami at the Geneva Motor Show, while Ferrari unveiled the 400 Automatic at the Paris Motor Show a few months later. Two Italian brands of great sporting tradition that increased their portfolio in a growing segment to attract the business moguls of the time; demanding persons that did not want to compromise. Because nothing less will do when one is accustomed to having the best. On the contrary. You want it all: Sportiness and comfort, performance and style. Almost custom cars that delegated the preparation to the best two tailors of the time. Maserati opted for Pietro Frua while Ferrari allowed Pininfarina to draw all their designs. Although they used the…

maserati kyalami/forgotten gem

Maserati Kyalami 4.2 Engine 4.2 liters V8 Motor 4,2 litros V8 Power 270 bhp @ 6000 rpm Potencia 270 CV @ 6000 rpm Torque 392 Nm @ 3800 rpm Par 392 Nm @ 3800 rpm Weight: 1550 kg Peso: 1550 kg 0-100 km/h 2,9 s Top Speed 240 km/h The Maserati Kyalami is rather unknown model of the brand from Modena. A true gem that has been forgotten due to its limited production, but that set the design grounds of future generations of the Trident. It was the first car developed in the times of Alejandro DeTomaso, when the Italian-Argentinian tycoon took over the firm. In 1974 and due the oil crisis, Citroën (which owned the brand at the time) decided to sell the company. It was Mr DeTomaso, supported by the Italian State, who took over the reins of one…
