The Ghibli shares its platfom with Maserati’s flagship sedan, the Quattroporte and is offered with two output levels of a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. There’s an eight-speed automatic, which can send the power to either the rear or all four wheels.

The fastest version is the Ghibli S Q4, whose 404 HP at 5,500 rpm and 406 lb-ft of torque from 1,750 rpm needs 4.7 seconds for the 0 to 62 mph sprint, also offering it a 175 mph top speed. As for the RWD version, this takes 0.2s longer to reach 60 mph.

As for the base Ghibli, this offers 345 HP and 369 lb-ft of torque, playing the 0 ot 60 mph game in 5.5 seconds. The vehicle comes with a starting price of $65,600.

The Ghibli may be slotted under the Quattroporte, but this model means quite a lot to Maserati. Its positioning is a key point for the automotive producer’s plan to reach a 50,000 car per year production target, which has been set for 2015.
