Maserati Ghibli is coming! Maserati has released the first official images of its upcoming four-door sports executive saloon in advance of its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month. And it looks spectacular! There are several design features from the Quattroporte and GranTurismo. And we like that!
The Ghibli will have a sportier character compared to the larger Quattroporte, launched at the beginning of this year. The Ghibli will be available with two turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engines, an eight-speed automatic transmission and both rear-wheel drive and the new “Q4” all-wheel drive system. We can only image the performance numbers with the set of technical aspects showcased here.
The Ghibli will also become the first Maserati production car in history to be powered by a diesel engine, with a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel. In addition to the extended range, we believe that Maserati will definitely pull some great looking numbers in terms of sales because of it. Somewhat keeping pace with the other big names in the industry.
It is Maserati’s first saloon in this segment and reflects the company’s belief that a growing number of premium executive car buyers are looking to make an individual statement through a car that is distinctive, elegant and luxurious.
Ghibli is projected to play a big role in the Maserati’s growth plan to sell 50,000 cars per year, all thanks to new production facilities we’ve been hearing about and probably to match what other manufacturers in the field of luxury sports cars are doing right now.
