The four-door Maserati Ghibli was unveiled at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, and it was upgraded continuously both in terms of aesthetic and performance factors. In its quest to lower the emissions, Maserati dared to offer it with a turbodiesel engine as well. In 2020 it started to sell the Ghibli with a mild-hybrid powertrain that promised to increase its fuel-efficiency. The hybrid version of the Ghibli was visually dif...

2017 - 2020

The name wasn't new, but it was the first Ghibli to be offered as a four-door vehicle, which the Italians said it was a four-door coupe. The 2017 model was a refreshed version of the 2013 model. With the increasing market for the sports sedan vehicles, Maserati took the Ghibli name from its warehouse and installed it on a brand new vehicle. It used the same platform as the Quattroporte and the Levante SUV. The refreshed version added more power and, of course, an Euro 6 homologation certificate. The exterior design remained the same as before, but the car-maker introduced two trim...

2013 - 2017

Maserati revived the Ghibli name in 2013 for the smaller brother of the Quattroporte flagship model and aimed at the sports sedan market. After fifteen years since the Ghibli nameplate was dropped from the market, Maserati decided to revive it. Unlike its predecessor, which was built between 1992 and 1998, the 2013 model was a four-door sedan, not a coupe. But, most importantly, it was the first Maserati available with a turbo-diesel engine. The 2013 Ghibli shared the same platform with the Quattroporte and was 291 mm (11.5") shorter than its bigger brother. At the front, it featu...

1967 - 1974

As Lamborghini offered the Miura and Ferrari the 365 GTB, Maserati responded with the Ghibli back in 1967. Compared to the Miura, the purpose of Maserati was not to offer the fastest car, but a fast car people could travel in luxury. The Ghibli was rather a refined GT than a pure sports car. The Ghibli was the most expensive of the 3, however, it managed to outsold the Ferrari and Lamborghini. One of the most GT ever built, the Ghibli was designed by Giugiaro, the same person who designed the De Tomaso Mangusta and the BMW M1. Giurgiaro was the best designer of the 20th century. ...
