1978 Maserati Merak

The Maserati Merak was a mid-engine, 3-liter, 2+2 GT, equipped with a longitudinally mounted compact V6. A rear tubular sub frame paired to a steel monocoque supported the powertrain and rear suspension. Giugiaro at Italdesign designed the body of the Maserati Merak. Giugiaro was also responsible for the designs of the famous Ghibli and the Maserati Bora— the Merak’s predecessor. From the Bora to the Merak, the most visible modifications were the abandon of the Bora’s complex clamshell engine cover, in favor of the buttress treatment behind the cockpit. The Merak SS appeared in U.S. dealerships in 1977 and was a high power variant of the model. After Citroen let go of their Maserati ownership in the mid-1970s, a lot of the equipment—especially the hydraulic parts—were left behind for systems that are more traditional.
