Maserati has made history with the introduction of the new Ghibli S, another four-door saloon to add to its range. Its introduction marks the first time that two four-door saloons are on sale simultaneously. The Ghibli S shares its name with the original 1967 Maserati Ghibli: it also shares its aggressive contours and outstanding performance. The Ghibli S is the saloon car gift that just keeps on giving. This sporty saloon is designed to give drivers the ultimate choice in customisation, to make your Maserati just that bit more exclusive.

Command of the onboard technology features at your fingertips. It doesn’t stop there! The Touch Control also connects to apps the internet and more.
With the ZF eight-speed transmission Maserati took steps to ensure the Ghibli S remained fuel efficient. The last two gears, seventh and eighth, have been uniquely calibrated to minimalise fuel consumption and increase comfort on long journeys.
The design of the Maserati Ghibli S certainly grabs attention. Its fierce radiator grille gives this saloon a feline-like prowess, with its eye-catching LED headlights suggesting two cat-like eyes. The Ghibli S gives the impression of a striking sports coupé with its frameless door windows, traditional triple air vents and quad chrome tailpipes. The Ghibli S assures all road users that this is no standard saloon car.
