Most recently, a new Maserati Ghibli was unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show. At the heart of this model is the platform from Quattroporte 6, it was this flagship that served as a source of inspiration for the design of the new Maserati Ghibli.
Visually, the Maserati Ghibli looks like a Quattroporte, only it is slightly smaller, both cars have the same front and side parts, but the back of the Ghibli is made in a completely different style. The length of the Maserati Ghibli is 4 970 mm, which is 290 mm less than that of the Quattroporte 6, and the length of the wheelbase is 2990, which is 200 mm. Less than Quattroporte 6.
Maserati Ghibli has a lot of competitors and they all also presented their new cars: BMW 5-Series F10, Audi A7 Sportback, BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe, Mercedes CLS, Jaguar XF and Mercedes E.
Maserati Ghibli 2014 inside looks very attractive, thanks to the luxurious finish of expensive and high-quality materials, the architecture of the front panel has become a little better compared to the previous model. In the new Maserati Ghibli, the center console, steering wheel, and instruments are radically changed.
For the Maserati Ghibli sedan, various modifications are offered, among the simplest: a 3-liter turbocharged V6 engine on diesel. These engines develop a power of 275 horses with torques of 600 Nm.
The Maserati diesel engine is an unprecedented situation; never in history has Meserati been equipped with a diesel engine. On a diesel engine, the Maserati Ghibli dials a hundred in 6.3 seconds, while the sound, according to company representatives, is no worse than the petrol options.
To achieve such results, we had to work on the exhaust system, besides, the cabin has a “Sport” button, pressing which the car starts to roar very wickedly and turns into a real monster, but 6.3 seconds to a hundred doesn’t matter.
As for gasoline engines, they were created together with Ferrari at the factory in Maranello. The simplest gasoline engine is already better and develops 330 horsepower, and the torque is 500 Nm (the acceleration time of this unit from 0 to a hundred takes 5.6 seconds).
But the most serious modification of the Maserati Ghibli produces 410 Italian horses and 550 Nm of torque. With this engine Maserati Chibli reaches hundreds in 5.0 seconds, and the maximum speed - 285 km / h. All gasoline engines are paired with automatic ZF, 8-band.
By the way, only the 410-strong version is equipped with all-wheel drive, and the other modifications are rear-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive works in such a way that, in normal mode, it transfers all traction to the rear wheels, but if necessary, the ratio of the axles instantly becomes 50:50.
Brembo is installed on the top version of Maserati Ghibli - very serious brakes. At Mercedes Gelendvagen, the price of which starts from 85,000 euros, they look great. In the basic version are 19-inch wheels, but for an additional fee you can put at least 21-inch. In Europe, this car will go on sale only in the autumn, by that time accurate prices will be announced.
But the price should not be very high, since in my opinion these cars lack some kind of zest like 3.5 seconds to a hundred :)) By the way, if you take VAZ 2109 after tuning for example after tuning, you can be sure that you are literate Tuning works wonders, after which the old trough can easily compete with the new Maserati Ghibli. But this, of course, a rarity.Recommended article: Not everyone will be able to do serious tuning of the VAZ 2105 with their own hands.
