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 achievement that combines sporty contours with stunning engineering prowess to become the very definition of automotive excitement.
The Ghibli is now available in
GranLusso and GranSport trim options. The GranLusso trim option places emphasis
on luxury and comfort whereas the GranSport trim option places emphasis on
directly engaging dynamics.
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 seven airbags shield the driver and passengers from the force of impacts from the front or side. The front seats also feature active headrests.
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. 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.
There is also little doubt about the identity of the Ghibli as a Maserati once you enter the vehicle. Upholstery and seating swathed in premium-quality leather emphasise its opulent but low-key design, along with the beautiful simplicity of such features as the large, clear touchscreen and ovular analogue clock in the centre of the dashboard. A car that places no limits on the driver’s personal desires.
At 4.9 metres the Ghibli is endowed with an understated appearance, extra agility and superb driving dynamics. To help you find the perfect driving position, the front seats are electrically operated. And whilst in the driving seat, you’ll feel in complete control with the ergonomic three-spoke leather-clad steering-wheel at hand.
With eight forward gears and split-second responsiveness, its sophisticated ZF automatic transmission effortlessly handles the prodigious power of the engine. Whilst a responsive suspension set-up delivers an incomparable ride with superb road handling.
