Maserati Unveils its New Ghibli

Maserati shows first photos and interesting details of the nice mid-size sedan. By the way, it’s the first Maserati that will be offered with a diesel engine.

Maserati has presented several images of its new Ghibli, which should debut in a couple of weeks at the Shanghai Auto Show. This new model is little less than the Maserati Quattroporte that has grown to size of Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7 Series in its latest generation. Maserati claims that this sport sedan has a “sportier character compared to the larger Quattroporte”. Maserati Ghibli will compete with the cars like BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and Mercedes E-Class.

Maserati also revealed some interesting information about engines of the new Ghibli. There will be two different versions of the 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine but perhaps the twin-turbo V8 engine will be added later. There will be All Wheel Drive version of Ghibli as well. The most interesting is that this sport sedan will be the first Maserati model with a diesel option. There is also 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6.
