Calling it gorgeous would be a gross understatement! The Ghibli oozes Italian flair and Roman aggression from every conceivable angle. Maserati have outdone themselves yet again.

Thats just a sweet angry sound...
Now it makes the XF look like an ordinary executive saloon
Now now... does the future plan of Maserati have a 3er/C competitor???

After Jeep, it should be Maserati that Fiat should bring to India, After they settle themselves that is.

Default Ferrari-Fueled Maserati

Came across this article :

Maserati, the Italian maker of exotic cars driven by the likes of U2 frontman Bono and designer Ralph Lauren, is shifting its focus from the elite to the merely wealthy with a mid-sized sedan called the Ghibli.
The new car, which will start at $65,600 when it hits U.S. showrooms in September, represents a direct challenge to mainstay German models like the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6. The Fiat SpA (F) unit is betting the car can offer something the Germans can’t: Italian se [...]

Harry Metcalfe from EVO drives the new Ghibli in its petrol and diesel avatar.



Incidentally, this is the first time the brand has ever sold diesel car. And I've got to say, it sounds pretty darn good for a diesel.

If this comes to India, I think they're going to skip the base 330 horsepower variant and give us the full monty 410 horsepower bi-turbo V6 as the only petrol engine option. Oh, and yes the diesel will be responsible for a big chunk of its sales.

Its Quattroporte.

Anyways, I don't think so- except Ghibli retains the family look that began from the days of the 2004 '4 door'. Its based on the new platform which will be shared with Alfa Romeo, Dodge and Chrysler.

Just test drove Ghibli few minutes ago. It was AWD version with most of the options installed. The only problem that I have is, the rear leg room.

I was looking at CLA45 AMG but didn't go for it because of virtually non-existing head room and Ghibli is little tight on Read Leg room.

Here are some pictures that I took on my phone:
