1978 Maserati Merak SS
In a sense, the Merak is the forgotten Maserati. Its styling was on par with Ferrari and any Lamborghini shy of the Countach, and while it won't do 185 mph—it's only a six cylinder, after all—it'll certainly give you all the charisma you can handle. This one has been so well maintained over the years that when it was time to restore it, new leather and a fresh coat of paint is all that was required. [More pics...]
