Brand new product from Maserati

Author: | Date: October 19th, 2013

Until now, I am sure that many of you assumed that the next all-new product from Maserati would be the Levante SUV based on the Kubang concept. While rumors of a smaller sedan have been circulating, it appeared to be farther down the pipeline.

Now with the new Quattroporte’s growth into a proper S-Class/7 Series/A8 competitor, the Ghibli is jumping ahead in the line to do battle in the higher-volume and arguably more important E-Class/5 Series/A6 segment.

It is not a traditional sedan, the styling will be four door coupe in the vein of the Audi A7.

The Ghibli’s engines will be lifted straight from the new Quattroporte, which means a twin-turbo V-6 to start and a twin-turbo V-8 to do battle against the E63, M5, XFR, CTS-V, and S7.

To really make it competitive, it’s rumored Maserati might pair the twin-turbo V-8 with an AWD system. We now have to be patient and wait to see what a great car the Maserati Ghibli will be.
