The 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 models 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. The Ghibli for 2018 is offered in GranLusso and GranSport form, each comprehensively equipped according to your precise personal wishes. With the GranLusso, the emphasis is on luxury and comfort. With the GranSport, it�s more about directly engaging dynamics. Whatever your choice, whatever your ambition, the Maserati Ghibli always has a uniquely inspirational answer. GranSport: sport takes centre stage The dynamic edge is seen in features that underscore the sculpted power of the Ghibli. At the front, there�s a commanding Sport-specific bumper which includes Black Piano inserts. The new grille is optionally available in black and the Trident has inserts in the blue of the original designed by Mario Maserati back in the 1920s. The same blue features on the Saetta logo in the C-pillars and the wheel hubs. GranSport: take the racing line Sport 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. Singular style At the front, the signature grille signals both dynamic intent and poised composure. Inspired by the legendary A6 GCS Berlinetta of the 1950s, it now features chromed bars and is perfectly integrated into the bumper, also stylishly updated. Above this, there�s the arching, predatory bonnet with two character lines plunging down into a V-shape. The grille�s traditional oval form narrows at the squared-off top section, accentuating the impression of strong forward focus. Here, it aligns with the sculpted headlights, incorporating LED Daytime Running Lights that underscore the charismatic Maserati presence. The entire ensemble leads the gaze to the iconic, low-mounted Trident � the Maserati symbol of power, endurance and elegance. Craftsmanship In true Maserati grand touring tradition, the cabin is characterised by elegant Italian style, hand-crafted finishes and perfectly organised, generously proportioned design. The sumptuous leather-finished curves, the clean, technical purity of the dashboard and detailing in metallic-effect dark mirror trim simultaneously relax and heighten the senses. Two side panels converge towards an elegantly simple central structure, which houses the traditional Maserati clock with its blue face and aluminium detailing. Beneath that, there�s the 8.4� touchscreen infotainment system and rotary control, along with a handy phone storage box. Even with its head-turning coupe?-like proportions, the Ghibli offers class-leading front legroom, as well as comfortable head and leg space for rear passengers. All seats are clad in meticulously selected and processed leather. In the finest tradition of Italian craftsmanship, they are also stitched by hand, while the front headrests are embossed with the Trident logo. Go the extra mile - whatever the weather The S Q4 intelligent all-wheel-drive system keeps the performance and comfort of your Maserati Ghibli at their engaging, inspirational best � even when the weather and road conditions are far from ideal. A sophisticated algorithm developed by Maserati also continuously monitors dynamic inputs such as wheel speed, steering and yaw angle and even wheel grip versus driving style. Processing all this data, the Q4 system then establishes a dedicated grip profile for each individual wheel. This ensures optimum dynamics for any given road condition, at any time. Sophistication and exhilaration The advanced design of the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission ensures precise gear changes and optimum performance, putting the power of the Ghibli engines under your complete control. Thanks to auto-adaptive software, the transmission modifies its shift patterns according to driving style, for an even more rewarding, one-to-one driving experience. And when it comes to long, high-speed journeys, the last two gears, seventh and eighth, are specially calibrated to reduce fuel consumption and further increase comfort. Innovation for a connected world MTC+ : the 8.4� Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+) unit takes pride of place at the centre of the Ghibli dashboard. With very few buttons plus a highly responsive interface, incorporates the car�s multimedia and functionalities (seat heating, ventilation, steering wheel heating and so forth). Apple CarPlay� and Android Auto�: the MTC+ also features both Apple CarPlay� and Android Auto� mirroring functions. Wi-fi Hotspot : the Wi-Fi option is another welcome touch when you�re on the move in the Ghibli. Safety Comprehensive safety Maserati made safety a top priority when designing the Ghibli. So not only does it provide mile after mile of high-powered luxury, it also has the full 5-star EURO NCAP safety rating.
