1975 Maserati Merak
The Maserati Merak was coachbuilt by Swiss-based Carrosserie Saurer, began in the previous decade when the Italian firm was still under the ownership of Citroën (1968–1975).
Only a year after presenting the V8-powered Bora in 1971, Maserati followed-up with the introduction of the smaller Merak, designed to compete against Ferrari’s Dino 246.
The Merak was fitted with a rear-mid mounted 190bhp 3.0-liter four-cam V6, a smaller displacement version of which was used in the Citroën SM. The 150mph (241km/h) Italian sports car remained in production until 1983 after 1,832 units had been built.
