Maserati, which is entering an exciting new era with the mid-engined MC20, recently took to social media to share images of a modern-day interpretation of the Shamal.
These designs were shared on the Maserati Fuoriserie account on Instagram and show a vehicle known as ‘Project Rekall.’ The car has some retro vibes, and while it’s unlikely to spawn any kind of production variant, it certainly looks good.
For starters, the overall shape of the original Shamal has been retained, meaning there is the same boxy bodywork with sharp lines and squared surfaces. One of the key changes made is the fitment of new LED headlights and daytime running lights, while the front end also features a more pronounced splitter.

Elsewhere, Maserati’s designers have tweaked the rear end with new LED taillights, a sharper rear lip spoiler and new tailpipes. The car also has a raised roof spoiler and a set of seven-spoke wheels.
The interior of the Project Rekall is largely the same as the original Shamal but does feature some alterations, most notably the inclusion of a (rather retro looking) digital gauge cluster and a set of carbon fiber-backed bucket seats.
Maserati’s Fuoriserie account on Instagram doesn’t just promote the automaker’s Fuoriserie customization program. but also showcases a number of intriguing design studies that won’t reach the production line but demonstrate the diversity of the brand’s designs.
