It's little surprise that the latest iteration of the Maserati Ghibli is a thing of absolute beauty. The Italian sportscar maker is well known for its ability to create an eye-catching design, but with the new Ghibli it has outdone itself. Effortlessly flowing lines sweep back across the entire length of the Ghibli, from grille to boot, taking the eyes on a journey across the stunning bodywork. At the front end, the Ghibli uses a broad, narrow grille and upturned headlights to demonstrate that it is not a car to be taken lightly.
Maserati takes the design and quality of its interiors with the seriousness of an Italian fashion house. It's one of the factors that truly sets the manufacturer from Bologna apart from its contemporaries, and the interior of the Ghibli is as impressive as you would expect. The cab is full of exemplary flourishes, from frameless glass in the doors, leather seats with an unparalleled focus on comfort, and an abundance of leather trim. Thanks to the input of the Ermenegildo Zegna fashion house, the Ghibli also features Zegna Mulberry Silk inserts, embellished with a hand-stitched micro-chevron, on the seats, roof lining and door panels.
The new Maserati Ghibli comes with a selection of three engines to choose between across its range, but the standard edition comes equipped with a turbo charged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine that can offer 350bhp. The V6 will see you reach 0-60mph in under 5.6 seconds, and the Ghibli will let you choose between three driving modes: Normal, Sport, and Increased Control and Efficiency.
As well as being powerful and impeccably designed, the new Maserati Ghibli comes equipped with all of the high-end safety features that you could possibly want from an executive saloon that features the Trident badge on its front. The most impressive of these are the Lane Departure Warning System and the Adaptive Cruise Control. The latter allows the Ghibli to keep a consistent amount of space between itself and the car in front, automatically braking or speeding up to match the traffic flow.
