Frankfurt 2013: Maserati Ghibli [Live Photos]
The Maserati Ghibli manages to combine the roughness of the Gran Turismo and the elegance of the Quattroporte, having a low stance and a coupe-like body shape which is enhanced by the automaker’s distinctive C-pillar treatment.
We like it for being small and agile-looking, giving you the impression that it will rip the asphalt from underneath itself. And given the fact that its most powerful setup of a 410 hp twin turbo V6, we could say that it has real chances of doing it.
What we don’t like, is the fact that it spoiled the whole Ghibli nameplate by making it a four-door sedan offered with a diesel choice (actually, it’s the first Maserati powered with a diesel engine...bleah) and the lack of imagination Maserati designers had when making the rear end - it looks like a Citroen C4 Sedan.
