The new Maserati Ghibli (starting price $65,600) is a beautiful luxury sports car, created with a fusion of elegance and sportiness. The Ghibli’s design is a delight to the eyes with its emphasis on sporty glamour and, just like the first Ghibli launched back in 1967, designed by the young Giorgetto Giugiaro, it will captivate with its strong personality. The front is dominated by the distinctive Maserati radiator grille with concave vertical fillets inspired by the GranTurismo and the A6 GCS Berlinetta, a famous icon from the past. The grille’s traditional oval shape becomes more rectangular and narrows at the top, where it meets the aggressive front headlights, which make skilful use of LEDs to underline the car’s strong character. The side of the car is defined by two curvy lines that converge before giving way to the muscular rear mudguards, while the tapered design of the boot is the natural continuation of the cabin, with the two LED lights providing continuity with the mudguards. Last but not least, the traditional triangular C-pillar and the frameless door windows help to give the car the look of a sleek coupé, even though its length and wheelbase are amongst the longest in the class. The Ghibli is powered by an innovative 3 litre Twin Turbo V6 engine: designed by the Maserati Powertrain engineers and built with passion at the Ferrari plant in Maranello, it is a highly efficient unit, capable of achieving even lower fuel consumption and emissions, while still delivering stunningly sporty performance. The peak torque and power values are extremely impressive: the engine pumps out 330 HP (243 kW) at 5000 rpm. When the driver presses the Sport button on the main tunnel to activate the overboost function, the already mighty 450 Nm of torque available at engine speeds from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm soars to 500 Nm. From a standstill, the Maserati Ghibli springs to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds; top speed is 263 km/h. Here’s the best part: The key to an extraordinary life is quite literally a key.
