some history (via: http://www.maserati-alfieri.co.uk/alfieri102.htm)
“In 1974 after a period of financial turmoil, Citroën, the then owners of Maserati, placed the company into liquidation. By 1975, Maserati was in the hands of a partnership berween Alejandro DeTomaso and GEPI (an Italian state organisation whose sole purpose was the protection of Italian jobs). DeTomaso’s Longchamp had not proved the success he had hoped and sales were low. During this time of re-organisation, DeTomaso was desperate to produce a new flagship Maserati. Given Maserati’s financial restraints, his solution was to call in Pietro Frua’s design studio in Turin to re-style the Longchamp and so was born the Kyalami.”
