Maserati Fuoriserie has been announcing the mysterious Project Rekall 2091 for several months now, publishing many different sketches as teasers. The latter gives us a clearer idea of what appears to be a redesigned Maserati Shamal in a restomod style.
While the sketches published by the Italian company are pretty clear, it is not yet clear what exactly the Maserati Fuoriserie division is announcing, but it is clearly related to the Maserati Shamal. We still don’t know if this is a prototype, a one-off piece made for a special client, or a presentation of a new limited edition.
At the end of last year, Maserati Fuoriserie showed the first sketches of this model, as well as some suggestive blueprints showing a clearly modified Maserati Shamal. A clearer sketch of the model demonstrates for the first time the name of this project, Project Rekall 2091.
This car features a wider Shamal body with numerous modern styling details such as new wheels, a sculpted bonnet, more aggressive bumpers with a pronounced splitter, and front and rear LED optics, graphics of which have little to do with the original elements.
The Maserati Shamal was one of the most exclusive and sporty variants of the Maserati Biturbo. It was based on the same platform and had the same body, but received many aesthetic and technical changes, including a boot lid, a marked B-pillar and a special front fascia with new air intakes and smaller optics. This version was produced from 1990 to 1996 and was powered by a 3.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produced 326 hp. and 441 Nm of maximum torque.
