Maserati Ghibli revealed ahead of Shanghai debut

Maserati has released the first details and images of the Ghibli saloon ahead of its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month.

The Ghibli has a more aggressive and sportier look when compared to the larger Quattroporte, and will be available with two turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engines linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. One of the engines is a 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel – making Ghibli the first Maserati production car in history to be powered by a diesel engine. Performance specs will be released later this month.

Both rear-wheel drive and the new “Q4” all-wheel drive system will be available.

The Ghibli will go against the likes of Mercedes E-Class, Audi A5 and BMW 5 Series, playing a major role in Maserati’s growth plan to sell 50,000 cars per year.
