The joys of driving a high performance, prestige saloon are no longer just for special occasions: the Maserati Ghibli is a unique combination of style, performance, sports handling and comfort that is designed to make inspirational motoring an everyday experience.
In developing the new Ghibli, Maserati has drawn on all its considerable experience in automotive design and engineering to create a unique and truly exceptional car - thrilling to drive, stunning to behold, and luxurious in the extreme. Sporty V6 engines, advanced technology and beautifully crafted, high quality interiors make the Ghibli stand head and shoulders above its rivals in the segment.
The smooth, elegant lines of the dashboard and central tunnel immerse passengers in an atmosphere of pure elegance: the soft leather of the seat upholstery can also be used on the two dashboard side panels and doors to create original two-tone combinations that enhance the sporty feel of the interior. Not to mention the exquisite stitching, the epitome of traditional craftsmanship.
The seats have a wraparound form, underlining the interior’s sporty feel and guarantee top-class comfort. The optional all-electric front seat adjustment system makes it easy to achieve the perfect driving position in terms of height, depth and the angle of the back and seat. The roomy rear bench seat accommodates up to three passengers.
Sculpted forms and well-defined volumes connected by clean lines that create movement: the Ghibli captures the attention with its emphasis on sporty glamour and, just like the first Ghibli launched back in 1967, captivates with its strong personality. Notable features of the sleek silhouette include the front and rear mudguards, which merge into a single central form for a more dynamic overall line.
The car’s nose is dominated by the distinctive Maserati radiator grille whose concave vertical fillets are inspired by the GranTurismo and the A6 GCS Berlinetta, a famous icon from the past. The grille’s traditional oval shape becomes more rectangular and narrows at the top where it meets the front headlights, which make skilful use of LEDs to underline the car’s strong character.
Compared to the more powerful unit installed on the Ghibli S, this six-cylinder engine has specifically designed camshafts and injectors, combined with different turbine mapping and a customised electronic control system. These modifications have cut consumption even further without impacting on its response to the throttle. From a standstill, the Maserati Ghibli springs to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds; its top speed is 263 km/h.
