By now you know the Maserati Ghibli-Maserati’s newest car, has been introduced in order to bring back the masses. The Italian car maker has now revealed the Ghibli in a new color called the “Blu Emozione” which shows elegance and a sportish character. The Ghibli was launched back in 1967, designed by the young Giorgetto Giugiaro and has been reincarnated again in what you now see.
The car made its official debut at the Shanghai Motor Show 2013 and so far, they have introduced four variants of this car: the Ghibli, Ghibli S, Ghibli S Q4 and the Ghibli Diesel. Looking at the new Ghibli, one will notice the inspirations borrowed from the GranTurismo and the A6 GCS Berlinetta the latter being a legend from the past.
Just to refresh your mind about what this car entails, the Ghibli will be available with two 3.0-liter V6 engines. The first will actually be Maserati’s first ever diesel powered production unit, while the latter will be a more conventional petrol powered unit. Expect the V6 to deliver upwards of 410hp while the diesel should produce around 330hp. A V8 engine is then expected to complete the Maserati Ghibli line-up but no official word for such an engine has been given.
Either way, all engines will be mated to ZF eight-speed automatic transmissions with paddle shifters. Although the car won’t be available with a traditional manual, Maserati will thankfully offer the Maserati Ghibli in both all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive configurations.
