THE GHIBLI’S DESIGN STRONGLY REFLECTS ITS SPORTING PEDIGREEThe first Maserati Ghibli was designed and unveiled at the Turin Motor show of the 1966. It followed a tradition pioneered by Maserati with the glorious A6 1500 of 1947: it was a grand tourer. That meant it delivered on the promise of glorious style, high-powered luxury and peerless comfort over almost any distance the owner cared to consider. A car imbued, naturally, with our motor racing DNA - a remarkably powerful force.Our latest Ghibli S model embodies the spirit that shaped both the first incarnation of 1966 and our hunger to innovate, compete and win. That means exclusive luxury, elegant yet and bold design and progressive technology. And, of course, empowering performance.
GRANLUSSO: EFFORTLESS LUXURYThe GranLusso trim extends the offering of the Ghibli by adding chromed bumper inserts, the GranLusso badge at the bases of the front wings and elegantly integrated body-colour side skirts. It also features large 19” Poseidone alloy wheels, complete with visible black brake calipers. Full-LED Adaptive Matrix headlights and Soft Close Doors, which draws each of the four doors to a close when left slightly ajar, are yet more welcome additions. It’s an alluring package that leaves no doubt as to the exclusive, long-distance comforts for all to enjoy inside this vehicle.
GRANSPORT: SPORTING STYLELike the GranLusso, GranSport also offers the hi-tech style and safety of Full-LED Adaptive Matrix headlights and the convenience of Soft Close Doors. The headlights continuously adjust the high and low beams, ensuring a sublimely comfortable and safe drive experience, whatever the speed or driving conditions. The low beam automatically adapts to all road and weather conditions, while the matrix high beam detects and prevents glare from oncoming and rear traffic, safely restoring the high beam when the road is clear. At the sides, the GranSport badge is incorporated into the front wings, while the aerodynamically optimised skirts match the body colour. There’s a bold flash of colour here, too. This is thanks to red brake calipers fitted to the imposing new 20” Urano machine-polished alloy wheels.
GRANLUSSO: OPULENCE WITH AN EDGEThe interior of the GranLusso offers Comfort seats with extensive 12-way power adjustment and a memory function for instant access to pre-set configurations. Additionally, there is the choice of either full premium leather or Ermenegildo Zegna Silk Edition upholstery, both complemented beautifully by Radica open-pore wood trim.
GRANSPORT: TAKE THE RACING LINESport seats feature 12-way power adjustment and a memory function, there’s a satisfyingly grippy Sport steering wheel, gearshift paddles enhance the race-bred feel and purist Inox Sport foot pedals enhance the sense of direct dynamic involvement. The GranSport also includes the convenience and flexibility of the Skyhook suspension system and parking sensors.
The 430 HP V6 engine delivers thrills with every touch of the acceleratorThe 2.979 litre Twin Turbo V6 installed on the Ghibli S is designed to provide a powerful driving experience; it generates 430 horsepower (301 kW) at 5,500 rpm and in Sport mode reaches a maximum torque of 550 Nm at just 1,750 rpm. The amazing specific torque value of 183 Nm per litre ensures an aggressive response that will deliver pure excitement with the slightest touch of the right foot.
A propulsion unit with a myriad of fuel-saving innovationsThe V6 engine is fitted with twin parallel-mounted low-inertia turbines, which reduce turbo lag to give greater elasticity. Other innovative solutions, designed to ensure greater fuel efficiency, include the high pressure (200 bar) direct injection system, which helps to improve combustion at all rpm, and the use of two continuous phase timing variators on both cylinder heads.
The exhaust valves are permanently open in Sport modePlacing the turbines in the exhaust manifolds has enabled the Maserati engineers to come up with a compact, lightweight exhaust system which, as on all Maserati models, also includes an air valve system capable of adding extra colour to the engine sound: in I.C.E. and Normal modes the valves remain closed, but when the Sport button is pressed they stay open all the time, releasing a thrilling, powerful roar.
