Maserati Ghibli Is Luxury And Power Redefined
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The Ghibli Diesel(with Car DVD) is the first diesel-powered car in Maserati’s history, with its 3.0 litre V6 engine producing 205kW and 600Nm. The new Ghibli shares parts of its core architecture, its chassis, its suspension architecture, the V6 engine and the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission with the flagship limousine Quattroporte. It is, however, 173mm shorter in its wheelbase and 291mm shorter overall, as well as 50kg lighter.

Dynamic and precise handling is guaranteed by the car’s perfectly balanced 50:50 weight distribution, while the sophisticated suspension system and limited slip differential make every ride even more enjoyable. Achieving five stars on the Euro NCAP crash test, the Ghibli provides peace of mind for all occupants.

The Ghibli can be fitted with a selection of rims, ranging from 18- to 21-inch in size – all enhancing the car’s visual appearance and engineered to lower the unsprung mass, which improves grip and handling.

While the 18-, 19- and 20-inch alloys are crafted from flow-forming technology that reduces the core thickness of the wheels and prioritises light weight without sacrificing stiffness and strength, the 21-inch rim is a forged alloy wheel and no heavier than the 20-inch rim.

The standard driver’s seat in the Ghibli offers six-way electric adjustment, while the Ghibli S features an even more supportive seat with eight-way electric adjustment. Preferred seat, lumbar and mirror settings can all be saved and recalled at the touch of a button.

The Ghibli’s rear seats provide optimised lateral support and guarantee comfort even on long journeys. The foldable central armrest doubles as a fifth seat when necessary and houses two cup holders and a storage box. The rear is equipped with ISOFIX fittings to securely anchor child seats.

The optional Ermenegildo Zegna interior combines Poltrona Frau leather with 100% natural fibre Zegna Mulberry Silk inserts on the seats, door panels, roof lining, sunshades and ceiling light fixture. Available in three colour variants, this exclusive outfit will be the most exquisite of all Maserati customisations.

A 8.4-inch touch screen display comes as a standard on Ghibli and Ghibli S, allowing the user to intuitively control almost all of the Ghibli’s on-board equipment – such as Car DVD player, radio and navigation, as well as Bluetooth mobile phone connections. iPhone’s Siri functionality has been integrated into the system to allow users to perform iPhone tasks and make requests using voice commands; for example, for Navigation, music or web search. The touch screen also controls the front seat heating and ventilation, the steering wheel heating and rear window shade. At the same time it functions as the screen for the reversing camera.

The new Ghibli contains optional WLAN technology that effectively turns the car into a Wi-Fi HotSpot. Owners can place a SIM card into its WLAN router to receive internet signals, which can be resent around the car as a wireless internet signal. If installing an Android Car stereo,it could use Wifi to down many apps as you like.
