Maserati's new four-door saloon bears the same name as two classic models of the 1960s and 1990s. The new Ghibli also shares the aggressive, shark-like nose and sleek frame as its predecessors. It’s an outstanding automotive achievement that combines a sense of heritage and originality, beauty and sophistication.
A car that not only pampers and cossets all who reside inside, but also treats them to the ultimate driving experience born of prolific power and exceptional handling.
The Masterati Ghibli offers next-generation safety features to protect all occupants in the event of an accident. A rigid monocoque structure provides excellent protection, whilst also featuring the latest airbag system and a remarkable front-end crumple structure that absorbs impact forces during a head-on collision.
The front seats also feature active headrests. And to help prevent potential accidents in the first place, the Ghibli offers a variety of active electronic systems to maintain traction and stability.
The styling of the Maserati Ghibli simply takes your breath away with seamless lines, beautiful curves and flowing contours. It’s the sort of car that could only ever have been created by masterful Italian designers. And one that places no limits on the driver’s desires and preferences with a world of customisations available.
Key to its dramatic appearance is its gorgeous silhouette and frameless door windows that impart the appearance of a sports coupé. With its wide frame, concave trapezoidal grille, narrow headlights and scooped bonnet, the Ghibli is elegant and authoritative on the road without being brash or showy. Cosseting luxury includes upholstery and seating swathed in premium-quality leather to emphasise its opulent but low-key design. And on the Ghibli Diesel, the interior details are in metallic-effect dark mirror trim finish.
Its highly innovative 3.0 V6 Turbo diesel engine, boasts all the very latest in diesel technology and a variable geometry turbocharger that significantly minimises turbo lag with a top speed of 250 km/h.
The Ghibli’s relatively modest length of 4.9 metres endows it with an understated appearance, extra agility and superb driving dynamics.
And with eight forward gears and split-second responsiveness, its sophisticated ZF automatic transmission effortlessly handles the prodigious power of the engine.
