The Italian brand outdid itself with the creation of this interesting Maserati and added a plus of flavor with its diesel engine. Are you curious to see what’s so crazy about this car? Continue reading and you will convince yourself.
What’s under the hood?
This Maserati Ghibli features a twin turbo 3.0 liter engine that was manufactured by VM Motori (specialized in professional diesel engines). Believe it or not, this Maserati wrote history in the Italian brand because it’s the first of this type. Equipped with V6 which can develop up to 275 hp and 600 Nm of torque, this Ghibli can reach 100 km/h in just 6.3 seconds. And despite bragging with so much potential, it has a fuel consumption of just 5.9 liters per 100 km.
Aside from these impressive features, this Maserati also uses an advanced Common-Rail fuel injection system that delivers 2000 bar of injection pressure. This contributes to cleaner emissions and a better performance. So you won’t feel guilty!
You don’t have to tell us twice because the interior brings us back into the Maserati world. The new dashboard design was thought to satisfy the needs of the sports fan enthusiasts without giving up on the luxurious aspect. The fine Poltrona Frau leather, the huge centre console compartment, the ventilated glovebox and the large door pockets convert this Maserati into a unique sedan.
Wheel me baby!
In what concerns the wheels and tires field, the King comes with 18-inch wheels but it can also be personalized to 19″,20″ or 21″.The alloys are skilfully crafted using flow-forming technology. This reduces the thickness of the wheels and plays with the minimal weight without giving up on strength or stiffness. The tires come in sizes 235/50 for both front and rear. If you need something bigger go with the Ghibli S or SQ4 that feature tires of 275/45.
Those who want to feel special every single day know that Maserati is the way to go. When I grow up this is what I want to drive! What about you?
