First official images of the Maserati Ghibli four-door sports executive sedan have been released in advance of its debut at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show. The all-new Maserati Ghibli is set to break new ground for Maserati.
The Ghibli will have a sportier character compared to the larger Quattroporte, launched at the beginning of 2013. 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. The Maserati 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.
It is Maserati’s first sedan 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.
