With a top speed of 255 km/h, the Maserati Karif is a luxury coupé, produced between 1988 and 1991. In a throwback to Maserati's earlier naming practices for two-seater GTs, the car was named after an incredibly strong wind that blows from the southwest across the Gulf of Aden in Somalia with gale force. Uncomfortably hot, the Karif start blows from 10 at night until noon the following day, reaching its greatest force at 8 in the morning. It’s incredibly dry and laden with sand from the internal areas of Africa. Equally strong and impetuous, the Maserati Karif is sporty and agile and allows the driver to feel like a real racing driver. Presented at the Geneva Motor Show of 1988, the Karif was designed for pure driving fun, ideal for long and joyful travelling for two persons.
