DESCRIPTION
The Maserati Karif, presented at the Geneva Motor Show of 1988, was designed with sporting intent. It was powered by a 2.8-liter, twin-turbo engine, and its design was based on the shortened chassis of the Biturbo Spyder. The Karif’s 114 mm shorter wheelbase and greater torsional rigidity, thanks to the reinforced sills from the Spyder’s floorpan, lent further improvements to its performance and handling. The rear seats from the Biturbo were deleted, in favor of additional luggage space behind the front seats, making the Karif ideal for grand touring for two over long distances. The Karif gained a reputation for being a driver’s car, and only 221 examples found their way into the hands of true enthusiasts.
