Maserati Ghibli becomes marqueâs second four door car line

Maserati Ghibli becomes marqueâs second four door car line

Its in petrol form the Ghibli offers high performance from both of the power outputs from the Twin Turbo-charged, 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines

Unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show and arriving just months after the new Quattroporte, the Ghibli will give Maserati two four-door saloon models for the first time in its history.

The Ghibli is smaller, shorter, lighter, cheaper to buy and more economical to runthan the flagship Quattroporte and is pivotal in Maserati’s plans to build 50,000 cars a year by 2015.

Its in petrol form it offers high performance from both of the power outputs from the Twin Turbo-charged, 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines.

The Ghibli has a more-focused, sportier philosophy than the larger Quattroporte and its most powerful model, the Ghibli S, generates 410 hp , races to 100km/h in 5.0 seconds and stretches out to a top speed of 285km/h.

The Ghibli is also the first Maserati in history to be powered by a diesel engine, with a turbo-diesel V6 producing all the sound, refinement and driving pleasure typical of Maserati while delivering fuel consumption over 47mpg (below 6 l/100km) on the NEDC combined cycle . The Ghibli diesel will also become the first Maserati with Start-Stop technology.

It shares much of its core architecture, including its crash safety, chassis, suspension architecture, engines and LED headlight technology, with the larger Quattroporte, though it is 50 kg lighter, 173 mm shorter in the wheel base and 291 mm shorter overall.

The Ghibli’s design team was challenged to produce a saloon that emphasised its more dynamic driving characteristics through a more aggressive visual personality, yet still maintained discernible visual links with the Quattroporte.

The outline of the body reflects a coupe-like philosophy for the four-door saloon, while there are strong feline hints around the Ghibli’s grille and headlights. The grille takes its inspiration from the current GranTurismo and it can draw a line back to the classic 1950s A6 GCS.

It also maintains Maserati’s distinctive C-pillar treatment, which delivers much of the coupe-like stance and carries the classical Saetta Maserati logo, carrying on a tradition dating back to 1963.

The side profile is dominated by a swage line that runs from the traditional Maserati grille vents behind the front wheels and finishes in the rear lights themselves.

Inside, the Ghibli sets itself apart from the Quattroporte with a unique dashboard design that perfectly matches its sportier and more youthful character without losing any of the luxury expected from Maserati. The Ghibli also delivers a sporty design combined with all the spaciousness expected in an executive saloon from Maserati.

The Ghibli, Ghibli S and Ghibli Diesel all utilise an eight-speed automatic transmission to deliver their performance.

All Ghibli models have excellent handling thanks to perfectly balanced weight distribution, a double-wishbone front suspension and five-link rear suspension. It can now deliver the added security and all-weather assurance of all-wheel drive as well.



The most powerful model, the Ghibli S, generates 410 hp , races to 100km/h in 5.0 seconds and stretches out to a top speed of 285km/h.
