The Ghibli marks a turning point in Maserati's history
Unveiled at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, the Ghibli along with the Quattroporte, gives Maserati two concurrent four-door sedan models for the first time in its history. With prices starting at £49,160.00, the Ghibli is smaller, shorter, lighter, more dynamic, less expensive and more economical than the flagship Quattroporte.
The Ghibli has entered the E-segment sports premium market
The Maserati Ghibli has entered the E-segment sports premium market with a marked advantage in cabin craftsmanship and detailing, including luxury features like the Maserati Touch Control screen, reversing camera, adjustable pedals, Poltrona Frau leather interior and the 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkes audio system, as well as WLAN-based WiFi and compatibility with most modern mobile phone systems. All Ghibli models deliver exquisite handling thanks to their perfectly balanced weight distribution, a double-wishbone front suspension and a state-of-the-art five-link rear suspension. It can now deliver the added security and all-weather assurance of all-wheel drive as well.
When sat in the driving seat, you'll feel in total control: the ergonomic three-spoke leather-clad steering-wheel with controls for interacting with the main multimedia functions frames a simple but striking instrument panel. The large speedometer and rpm-counter have elegant white backlighting and are separated by a 7" TFT display that shows the car's dynamic data.
The smooth, elegant lines of the dashboard and central tunnel immerse passengers in an atmosphere of pure luxury: the soft leather of the seat upholstery can also be used on the two dashboard side panels and doors to create original two-tone combinations that enhance the sporty feel or elegance of the interior. Not to mention the exquisite contrast stitching.
Sculpted forms and well-defined volumes connected by clean lines that create movement: the Ghibli captures the attention with its emphasis on sporty glamour. Notable features of the sleek silhouette include the front and rear mudguards, which merge into a single central form for a more dynamic overall line.
