    This appears to be the car photographed in Brunei (a Right hand drive country) sone years ago, chassis number unknown. Not sure if it is part of the Sultan's (now largely dormant) collection masterminded essentially by his brother Jeffrey. Good find Joe. Any hint as to whether it is there or in the UK, Australia Japan?
    Edit: that company INITIAL seen on the van is...a French company though perhaps they are active in other countries and the white car appears to have an EU number plate. The types of cars around the K would possibly indicate that there is a luxury car shipping company involved...

    Hi all

    I have seen pics ot this car several times

    first in Brunei with a V8 installed but not yet modified, so unsure if it is in effect the same car:
    http://puffupthesmoke.blogspot.ch/2008/05/maserati-khimson.html

    then in Christchurch, New Zealand, modified, Grey colour, and for sale by Dutton Garage:
    https://www.thepictame.com/share/BhvZEn9jEAU

    then again in Blue colour, posted by Sergej Kosharson, so maybe in Russia now?, or any other country, see the cars around.

    Best regards, Roger

    Thanks for that Roger, yes hard to correlate the first one with the other two which are clearly the same one. But then again how many K's can have been in Brunei? That instagram post seems to say it is in Moscow but a lot of his posts were shot in London and the sign on a building says factors and it is not in cyrillic...but there is a factors.ru company in Russia...will aim to find out more...

    Do you know the part number of the cylinder you are looking for? If you can come up with it I can check to see if is in my inventory.

    Hi Bal,
    That is the car of J W who was with us at K40. 351 if I recall correctly, am not at home.
    I tried to help him find a buyer earlier this year but he was too ambitious price wise.

    It is also the car in the 1986 six part restoration article in Cars magazine.

    It was repainted properly last winter.

    Looking at a youtube video of the 1973 Earls Court Motorshow in London I saw a Khamsin (see video, at about 2:10).
    This must have been in October 1973.
    The commentator calls it a Merak but I'm pretty sure it is a Khamsin :)
    It seems to be LHD, and in this colour and with the crossed wipers it looks the same as the car I saw earlier in an Indonesian magazine photo.
    Must be a very early car, or even a prototype?

    Thanks for this AMLC I will ask Fabio to look up that event's log to root out the chassis number and will report back. I think it is a car used in some publicity shots with weird carpet colors.

    Actually you could be right, makes sense, let's see what Fabio digs up.

    Great news for you Richard: Fabio has looked a the archives and the only early car with these colors is AM120-010, your car, so 010 is indeed the car of the 73 London Motorshow. The reason why a left hand drive car was shown in a UK show is that right hand drive Khamsin production had not yet begun.

    Well the announcer got one thing right... in his intro.
    "The Maserati Merak... For the deserving poor".
    Which word best describes the owner? Thank you Marc for confirming this... I've saved a local copy for the books
