The new Maserati Quattroporte that was unveiled earlier this year replaced its very much loved predecessor. The car has become a little bigger and is more of a luxury limo than the previous car. This has allowed for a new model to slip in just underneath the Quattroporte and now the much anticipated 5 Series rival from the Italian company has been revealed at long last.
This is the Maserati Ghibli and it is to offer the same comfort as its bigger brother but in a neater, more sports orientated, package. With a clear family resemblance to the Quattroporte, the Ghibli sports an aggressive front end that then morphs into more elegant architecture at the rear. Inside bare carbon fibre dons the cabin highlighting this saloons sporting nature. Power comes from a 410BHP turbocharged 3.0 litre V6 petrol, or for the first time in Maserati history, a turbocharged 3.0 litre V6 diesel. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via an 8 speed automatic transmission.
Deliveries of the new baby Maserati start in October.
