  1. These cars were really fantastically designed and built.
    The hypopneumatic suspension was very clever but the way the Maserati V6 was mounted with ancillary components driven off a separate forward facing jackshaft was a unique way of gaining easy maintenance access under the hood.
    Three two barrel Weber 42 DCNFs sitting on top of the engines of most models were a nice touch for those who liked to tinker with their toys also!
    These photos are very nice but an under-the-hood shot is sorely lacking to give this classic justice.

  3. The 4 door SM, wow! Never seen one and wish I could sit in the back seat in person to check it out. What a car.

  4. Superbes photos Laurent.
