Maserati Project Rekall is the cyberpunk Shamal nobody asked for but we totally want
The Italian carmaker released a render of a restomod Shamal sports car called Project Rekall on Friday, and Maserati is actually considering building it — or more accurately, its something a customer can have built through the brand’s Fuoriserie customization program. If you’re not familiar with the Shamal, it originally existed from 1990 to 1996. It was based on a Marcello Gandini design and powered by a 3.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8.
This render from Maserati keeps most of the Shamal’s exquisite exterior brutalism intact and adds some C4 Corvette-like LED gauges to the interior, along with some sharp-edged seats that would look totally at home in the spaceship Nostromo.
The overall effect is fantastic, and we hope Maserati builds it, even if the likelihood of someone wanting a restomodded Shamal is probably pretty small.
