AN ENDURING LEGACY
The first Maserati Ghibli was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and
unveiled at the Turin Motor Show of 1966. Giugiaro, then in his 20s, was
considered a design prodigy. And rightly so. His creation, with its 2+2,
fastback format, pop-up headlights and audacious shark-nosed profile
was an instant hit.
Maserati had planned to make 100 models but, following the car’s
rapturous reception, that number was boosted to 400. In the end, the
Ghibli remained in production until the end of 1972, with 1,295 examples
built in spyder and coupé format.
The car followed a tradition pioneered by Maserati with the glorious
A6 1500 of 1947. It was a grand tourer. That meant it delivered on the
promise of glorious style, high-powered luxury and peerless comfort over
almost any distance the owner cared to consider.
Here are just a few examples. In 1926, Alfieri Maserati drove the
Maserati Tipo 26 to victory in its first ever race – the treacherous
Targa Florio in the mountains of Sicily. In 1939, Wilbur Shaw won the
Indianapolis 500 at the wheel of the Maserati ‘Boyle Special’ 8 CTF at an
average speed of over 185 km/h. He then repeated this incredible feat
the next year, making Maserati the only European manufacturer to win
the Indy 500 two years in a row.
And in 1957, the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio took his fifth F1 World
Championship at the Nürburgring – also known as the Green Hell – in
a Maserati 250F. At 46 years old, it was his last and his greatest victory.
Our latest Ghibli models embody the spirit that shaped both the first
incarnation of 1966 and our hunger to innovate, compete and win.
That means exclusive luxury, elegant yet bold design and progressive
technology. And, of course, empowering performance.
It was also, naturally, a car imbued with our motor racing DNA – a
remarkably powerful force. Indeed, well before 1966, we had proved our
credentials with a host of famous wins.

The design of the Ghibli is a study in dynamically sculpted curves and
gracefully flowing lines. At the front, the signature grille bearing the
Maserati Trident signals both dynamic intent and poised composure.
Inspired by the legendary A6 GCS Berlinetta of the 1950s, it now
features chromed bars and is perfectly integrated into the bumper,
also updated.
In profile, a host of details create a striking coupé look. They
include frameless doors, muscular rear haunches and the sloping
C-pillar design, which incorporates the timeless Saetta logo.
At the rear, you’ll find quad chrome exhaust tailpipes inscribed
with ‘Maserati’ and ‘Ghibli’ and elegant new bumper styling.

A D I S T I N C T I V E I N V I TAT I O N
The interior of the Ghibli is, in essence, a clearly expressed invitation
to travel – in luxurious comfort and with effortless access to the
high power at your disposal.
In true Maserati grand touring tradition, the cabin is characterised
by elegant Italian style, hand-crafted finishes and perfectly
organised, generously proportioned design.
The sumptuous leather-finished curves, the clean, technical purity
of the dashboard and detailing in metallic-effect dark mirror trim
simultaneously relax and heighten the senses. Two side panels
converge towards an elegantly simple central structure, which
houses the traditional Maserati clock with its blue face and
aluminium detailing. Beneath that, there’s the 8.4” touchscreen
infotainment system and rotary control, along with a handy phone
storage box. The large speedometer and rev counter, meanwhile,
have purist white backlighting and are separated by a 7” TFT
display that presents the car’s dynamic data.
12
Even with its head-turning coupé-like proportions, the Ghibli offers
class-leading front legroom, as well as comfortable head and
leg space for rear passengers. All seats are clad in meticulously
selected and processed leather. In the finest tradition of Italian
craftsmanship, they are also stitched by hand, while the front
headrests are embossed with the Trident logo.
Individual adaptability is a Maserati hallmark. Which is why, for
instance, the driver’s seat of the Ghibli offers six-way electric
adjustment and the leather multi-function steering wheel features
a wealth of adjustment possibilities.
In the rear, 60/40-folding leather rear seats can comfortably
accommodate three people. These provide fully optimised lateral
support and comfort even on the longest journeys. And if child seats
are needed, ISOFIX fittings mean they can be anchored securely.

The Ghibli GranLusso introduces even higher levels of luxury
and convenience. This offers Comfort seats with 12-way power
adjustment and a memory function as well as the choice of full
premium leather or Ermenegildo Zegna Silk Edition upholstery,
both complemented by Radica open-pore wood trim.
The power-adjustable steering wheel is also finished in fine wood.
More exclusive luxuries include the Harman Kardon Premium
Sound system, a power rear sunblind, power foot pedals and an
electrically lockable, PIN number-protected passenger glove box.

GHIBLI GRANSPORT
S P O R T TA K E S C E N T R E S T A G E
For an even sharper sporting edge, there’s the Ghibli GranSport.
This is equipped with a Sport-specific bumper with Black Piano
inserts, the GranSport badge on the wings, optional black grille
finishing and 20” Urano machine-polished alloy wheels with red
calipers. In addition, the Trident has inserts in the blue of the
original designed by Mario Maserati back in the 1920s. The same
evocative colour features on the Saetta logo in the C-pillars and
the wheel hubs.
An optional Exterior Carbon Package for the GranSport is another
tempting choice. This includes door handles, exterior door mirrors,
B- and C-pillar covers, front splitter and the rear spoiler all finished
in carbon.
Both the GranLusso and GranSport, meanwhile, offer the hitech style and safety of Adaptive full LED headlights and the
convenience of Soft Close Doors.

TWO CHOICES ENDLESS
P O S S I B I L I T I E S
A core offering of all Maserati vehicles is the ability to cover long
distances at dynamic yet refined high speed. With the Ghibli, the
power that delivers this comes from V6 petrol engines.
The Ghibli offers the inspirational, high-capacity power expected of
a Maserati supercar. It’s also a luxury executive saloon, so it’s highly
efficient and low on CO2 emissions.
To achieve this fine balance, the developers at Maserati Powertrain
adopted a two turbocharger design – one for each cylinder bank. Twin
turbocharging isn’t new, of course. It was pioneered by Maserati with
the Biturbo of 1981, an innovation the rest of the automotive industry
has only recently caught on to.
Nothing can match the Maserati engine note, however. And with the
Ghibli, a lightweight exhaust system with bypass valves ensures that
it’s delivered to maximum effect. With Sport mode active – which
also sharpens the vehicle’s handling – the valves open, providing
the shortest, highest-energy route for the exhaust gases. The result is
optimised engine performance and that resonant, spine-tingling sound.
28
350hp V6 Twin Turbo
The V6 engine in the Ghibli GranLusso and GranSport delivers 350 hp
at 5,500 rpm and 500 Nm of torque between 4,500 and 5,000 rpm.
In overboost mode, peak torque is available between 1,750 and
5,000 rpm. Combined fuel consumption is just 8.9 litres/100 km and
combined CO2 emissions are 207 grams per kilometre. The 350 hp
Ghibli accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds and
reaches a top speed of 267 km/h.
430hp V6 Twin Turbo
The Ghibli GranLusso and GranSport S and S Q4 models feature
the most powerful version of the V6. Maximum output of 430 hp is
delivered at 5,750 rpm and, in overboost mode, peak torque of 580 Nm
is on tap between 2,250 rpm and 4,000 rpm, with 90 per cent of that
torque accessible at just 1,600 rpm. The sprint from 0-100 km/h is
dispatched in 4.7 seconds and top speed is 286 km/h. Combined fuel
consumption and CO2 emissions for the S GranLusso and S GranSport are
9.6 litres/100 km and 223 g/km. The need-to-know numbers for the
S Q4 GranLusso and S Q4 GranSport are 9.7 litres/100 km and 226 g/km.
29
T E C H N O L O G Y
AN ALL-MASERATI DIESEL
The Ghibli Diesel is the first diesel-powered car in the history of
Maserati - and it’s everything a Maserati engine should be.
The turbo system also benefits from a Rotary Electronic Actuator. This
reduces friction for even better responsiveness and lower emissions.
The turbocharged V6 in the Maserati Ghibli Diesel offers a uniquely
rewarding combination of massive power, long-distance refinement
and impressive efficiency.
More efficiencies are gained with the Auto Start-Stop function, also
featured with the petrol engines. With the diesel, this leads to overall
fuel and CO2 emission reductions of up to 6 per cent. The function
automatically deactivates in Sport mode and when the driver turns
off stability control. It can also be deactivated from the cluster display
controls using the steering-wheel buttons.
Developing class-leading output of 275 hp and a mighty 600 Nm of torque,
the engine takes the Ghibli from zero to 100 km/h in a fast and smooth 6.3
seconds before going on to top speed of 250 km/h. As for economy and
emissions, the figures speak volumes. Combined fuel consumption is 5.9
litres per 100km and CO2 emissions are just 158 g/km.
A state-of-the-art Common Rail fuel injection system and the “air gap
technology” of the exhaust manifolds ensure excellent refinement,
while variable geometry turbocharging significantly cuts turbo lag.
30
When it comes to the engine note, this engine is evidently all Maserati.
Thanks to the Maserati Active Sound system, two actuators underscore
the engine’s most rousing tones and modulate them according to
driving style. And when the driver presses the Sport button, the vocal
performance becomes even more dynamically forceful.

A N D EXHILARATION
The sophisticated ZF eight-speed automatic transmission in the Maserati Ghibli puts a vast world of possibilities in the palm of your hand –
and, if tempted, your fingertips.
The advanced design of the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission
ensures precise gear changes and optimum performance, putting the
power of the Ghibli engines under your complete control.
Thanks to auto-adaptive software, the transmission modifies its shift
patterns according to driving style, for an even more rewarding,
one-to-one driving experience. And when it comes to long, highspeed journeys, the last two gears, seventh and eighth, are specially
calibrated to reduce fuel consumption and further increase comfort.
The transmission sends power to the rear wheels of all Ghibli models
via a standard mechanical Limited-Slip Differential. This ensures
superb traction in even challenging situations.
For maximum driver involvement, there are five operating modes,
selected using the buttons near the gear lever: Auto Normal, Auto Sport,
Manual Normal, Manual Sport, and Increased Control & Efficiency (ICE).
Upshifts are all automatic unless a manual mode is selected.
AUTO NORMAL MODE
This pre-set mode provides smooth gearshifts at low revs to maximise
ride comfort and minimise fuel consumption. When a sportier style
of driving is recognised, upshifts automatically take place at higher
engine speeds.
34
AUTO SPORT MODE
In this mode, gearshifts take place in under 100 milliseconds and occur
at higher revs. This guarantees a near-seamless flow of exhilarating
high power and a far more sporty driving style.
MANUAL NORMAL MODE
This allows the driver to change gear using the optional paddles
behind the steering wheel or the lever on the central tunnel. The
system automatically shifts up a gear as the red line approaches, and
shifts down in the same way.
MANUAL SPORT MODE
In Manual Sport, the driver takes full control of the transmission: the
overboost function is activated for maximum performance, gearshifts
are quicker and sharper, and the engine can be pushed to the limit
without the system intervening. The only automatic feature is
downshifting if the revs drop too low.
ICE (INCREASED CONTROL & EFFICIENCY) MODE
This mode ensures better control in all weather conditions, the most
comfortable and quietest engine response, and minimal fuel consumption.

MASTERFUL DYNAMICS
The long road ahead, with its twists, turns and occasional surprises, is there for the taking in the Maserati Ghibli thanks to a host of intelligent systems.
Q4 ALL-WHEEL DRIVE SYSTEM
The S Q4 Ghibli GranLusso and S Q4 GranSport are perfect choices
for drivers seeking the dynamic rewards of rear-wheel drive with the
back-up of four-by-four traction. Each features the same compact and
lightweight Q4 all-wheel drive system. In normal conditions, Q4 sends
all torque to the rear wheels, for perfectly balanced Maserati driving
dynamics and optimal fuel consumption. If traction is lost due to fast
cornering, sudden acceleration or low grip on the rear axle, Q4 can
alter the torque split from 100 per cent rear-wheel drive to 50-50
between the front and rear wheels. It all happens in an imperceptible
150 milliseconds – or less than the blink of an eye.
SKYHOOK SUSPENSION
The Ghibli S GranLusso and S GranSport feature Skyhook suspension,
with shock absorbers featuring continuous damping variation. The
system uses sensors that monitor the movement of each wheel and
the car’s body to determine the road conditions and how the car is
being driven. It then instantly adjusts the settings of each damper
accordingly. The basic setting priorities ride comfort, but if more
dynamic handling is required, a simple press of the suspension button
on the central tunnel immediately firms up the shock absorbers.
36
INTEGRATED VEHICLE CONTROL (IVC)
It’s often better to be proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes
to driving dynamics. Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) illustrates this
perfectly. This system can detect the onset of vehicle instability and
apply corrective measures before things get out of hand. It works
by selectively reducing engine torque and applying brakeforce to
individual wheels as required.
ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS)
This system, standard on all models, provides the excellent road-feel
and comfort expected from Maserati. It adapts its weight according
to speed, being lighter and easier to turn when manoeuvring in a
tight spot, for instance. Conversely it has a weightier, more connected
feel at high speeds. It also delivers efficiency benefits because it uses
energy only when the wheel is being turned. Another plus point is
integration with active Advanced Driving Assistance Systems such as
Highway Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist.

A cutting-edge infotainment package for the 2018 Ghibli puts the focus on intuitive engagement,
real-world assistance and adaptable enjoyment.
The interior of the Ghibli is built around a driver interface that is
intuitive, uncluttered and simple to use. The instrument cluster
features large analogue gauges for the tachometer and speedometer,
alongside a 7” TFT display. Major dynamic functions are incorporated
into the buttons alongside the gearshift, while other on-board settings
can be set using the Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+) infotainment
system at the centre of the dashboard, or the steering wheel controls
for the 7” TFT display.
MASERATI TOUCH CONTROL SYSTEM
The 8.4” Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+) unit takes pride of place
at the centre of the Ghibli dashboard. With very few buttons plus a
highly responsive interface, it is designed to help the driver maintain
focus on the road ahead and mastering it is intuitive and easy.
MTC+ can be operated in three ways: via the multi-touchscreen, the
rotary control in the central console, or through voice commands.
The system incorporates the car’s radio, Bluetooth®, and satellite
navigation system (where fitted), along with connections to external
sources such as mobile phones, tablets and laptop computers.
38
Using Aux-in, USB sockets or the SD card reader, you can also play
music or, when the car is stationary, watch films and view images on
the screen. In addition, MTC+ controls the front seat heating, as well
as the ventilation, steering wheel heating and the operation of the
rear window blind, where fitted. The screen displays the rear view, with
guidelines, for the reversing camera, too.
The state-of-the-art system also features both Apple CarPlay® and
Android Auto® mirroring functions. In addition, for iPhone® users,
Apple’s SIRI® system acts as a personal assistant, allowing them
to carry out tasks using voice command. Through naturally spoken
language, it is possible to make a call or access music, messages,
reminders, emails, websites and much more.
Wi-Fi Hotspot
The Wi-Fi option is another welcome touch when you’re on the move
in the Ghibli. Simply place a SIM card into the WLAN router to access
internet signals inside the car. Up to three devices can be connected
at the same time.

WORLD-CLASS AUDIO
E N T E R T A I N M E N T
The Ghibli is offered with three audio system choices. A powerful 280-watt, eight-speaker package is fitted as standard and sets the
bar at an impressively high level. You can, however, move up to one of two outstanding options designed for true audio aficionados –
the 10-speaker Harman Kardon Premium Sound system and the 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound system.
HARMAN KARDON PREMIUM SOUND SYSTEM
The optional Harman Kardon Premium Sound system offers the
most elevated levels of audio refinement, with every component
uniquely tailored to perfectly match the Ghibli interior. To achieve this,
Harman Kardon sound engineers worked very closely with the
development team at Maserati.The core of the system is a state-of-the-art,
900-watt amplifier, delivering rich and detailed sound quality, whatever
the source, be it radio, MP3 player, iPhone® or audio streaming device.
No fewer than 12 independent channels are deployed, for superb
balance within the car environment. A special high-performance
subwoofer handles the low-end frequencies with ease, while the
mid-range drivers and tweeters ensure that every instrument
and every artist can be appreciated to the full. And with the 10
high-powered speakers carefully distributed throughout the cabin, this
system guarantees sublime sound for all on board the Ghibli.
40
BOWERS & WILKINS SURROUND SOUND
This audio package is the product of 50 years of Bowers & Wilkins’
countless hours of testing and even extensive research in the field of
psychoacoustics – the science of how people react emotionally to sound.
Fifteen speakers, with mid-range drivers and rear-woofers made from
Kevlar®, have been strategically built into the car’s architecture, while
a 1,280-watt amplifier ensures immersive sound for all on board.
Advanced aluminium tweeters capture the faintest audio subtleties,
while creating a rock-solid bass is guaranteed by Rohacell® in the
system’s bass drivers. The system features QuantumLogic™ Surround
Sound Technology, which digitally remodels signal streams and
reconstructs the original recording of a musical piece. Along with
this, the Clari-Fi function automatically restores detail lost in digitally
compressed music. The Bowers & Wilkins system is compatible
with most disc formats and features a built-in USB connector for a
smartphone, iPod or MP3 player. Alternatively, tracks can be streamed
directly either via Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto®.

ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS
The Ghibli is equipped with an impressively comprehensive range of advanced driving assistance systems. It means even greater peace of
mind, whether you’re on an exclusive grand tour or a dash through the city.
TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION
It can be easy to miss traffic signs sometimes, for all sorts of reasons. This
is where Traffic Sign Recognition comes in. It monitors three types of sign:
speed limits, temporary speed limits due to conditions such as heavy rain, and
no-overtaking zones. It then displays the signs digitally in the cluster display.
The system works with a digital camera mounted behind the rear-view mirror
and navigation system data.
HIGHWAY ASSIST SYSTEM (HAS)
This combines the virtues of Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Lane
Keeping Assist to make life even easier on motorways. Using information
picked up from a digital camera behind the rear-view mirror and a radar
system in the front grille, HAS automatically keeps the vehicle centred in
its lane, at a pre-selected speed and at a chosen distance from the vehicle
ahead. It will even decelerate the Ghibli through to a standstill as the traffic
dictates. To ensure safety, HAS requires the driver to keep his or her hands on
the steering wheel at all times.
LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM
Thanks to a camera in the rear-view mirror that monitors road markings
ahead, the Lane Departure Warning system helps the driver keep the vehicle
in the chosen lane on motorways and main roads. This reduces lane drift and
the possibility of lateral collisions by providing a warning when the vehicle
crosses lane markings without signalling. Activation of the turn indicator
overrides the system.
LANE KEEPING ASSIST (LKA)
This provides valuable support if the driver is about to unintentionally leave a
lane. A digital camera behind the rear-view mirror continuously monitors road
markings to keep track of the course ahead. The instrument panel display
shows the specific status. White lines on either side of the vehicle image
indicate that it is safely in lane. One yellow line indicates that the Ghibli is
moving off-centre, right or left. And one flashing yellow line warns of lane
departure. At that point, when the Visual & Haptic box is selected in the
touchscreen display, LKA actively steps in with corrective steering torque.
ACTIVE BLIND SPOT ASSIST
With this system, a warning icon appears in the exterior door mirrors when a
vehicle enters the driver’s blind spot. Three levels of support can be selected
if the driver nonetheless initiates a lane change. Either the system maintains
44
the visual alert in the door mirrors, the alerts are backed up with an acoustic
warning, or the system intervenes with steering torque. The intensity of this
torque is also adaptable according to preference.
SURROUND VIEW CAMERA
This provides a clear 360° view around the car, helping with parking and
highlighting otherwise hidden obstructions. Images are captured by two
cameras beneath the door mirrors plus front and rear cameras and shown
on the main display screen.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL WITH STOP & GO
Adaptive Cruise Control constantly monitors the vehicle ahead, maintaining
a pre-set distance. With the Stop & Go function, the car will also adjust to
the speed of the vehicle in front until it comes to a complete stop, if the stop
is less than two seconds.
FORWARD COLLISION WARNING PLUS
This, in combination with Adaptive Cruise Control, monitors vehicles ahead
and warns if the approach could result in a rear-end collision. It is linked to
the Advanced Brake Assist system, which provides additional braking during
an emergency stop. If the warning does not prompt any action from the
driver, the Autonomous Emergency Braking system automatically applies the
brakes to reduce the car’s speed.
REAR CROSS PATH FUNCTION
This is a welcome feature that emits a warning when an unseen vehicle is
approaching, from the right or left, while reversing out of a parking space.
FRONT AND REAR PARKING SENSORS AND REVERSING CAMERA
To assist with manoeuvring in tight spaces, the Ghibli comes equipped with
parking sensors in the front and rear bumpers. Beeping noises increase in
frequency as the obstacle approaches, while the TFT display in the centre of
the instrument panel shows the car surrounded by symbols which light up in
green, yellow or red depending on the remaining distance. In addition, there
is an optional rear-view camera, fitted close to the boot lock, that shows a
view of what is behind the car on the Maserati display. Dynamic grid lines
illustrate the maximum width of the vehicle and its projected path, based on
the steering angle of the front wheels.
45
S A F E T Y
COMPREHENSIVE SAFETY
Maserati made safety a top priority when designing the Ghibli. So not only does it provide mile after mile of high-powered luxury, it also
has the full 5-star EURO NCAP safety rating.
THE MASERATI STABILITY PROGRAM
Developed in the most extreme test conditions, the Maserati Stability
Program (MSP) uses an array of sensors to constantly monitor driving
status. It can then deploy a host of safety and performance systems
to maintain handling and grip. If, for instance, a skid is detected, MSP
selectively reduces engine torque and can activate the brakes with
finely varied inputs to restore stability within milliseconds.
The MSP system also works in harmony with functions including
Anti Slip Regulation (ASR), which reduces wheel spin and improves
traction, and engine brake torque control (MSR) that prevents the wheels
from locking up when suddenly changing down gears. Additionally,
antilock brakes (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
stop the wheels from locking and distribute brakeforce between
the front and rear axles. Further support is provided by the
Brake Assistance System (BAS). This recognises emergency stops and
boosts the pressure in the hydraulic circuit to maximise stopping
power. A Hill Holder, meanwhile, helps the driver when starting off
on an uphill slope.
ADAPTIVE FULL LED HEADLIGHTS WITH
GLARE-FREE HIGH-BEAM ASSIST
The GranLusso and GranSport are fitted with new, full-LED
headlights that even further sharpen the striking Maserati look,
significantly improve visibility and offer remarkably long bulb life.
Compared with bi-xenon lighting, visibility is improved by 20 per
cent, road illumination extends by 55 metres and bulb longevity is
roughly twice as long. Its glare-free technology enables drivers to
gain the full benefits of their headlights without affecting oncoming
46
vehicles. This uses a digital camera behind the rear-view mirror to
detect approaching vehicles. It then directs the light away from the
other vehicles, leaving them untroubled by glare. The surrounding
areas, meanwhile, remain safely and effectively lit with near-daylight
quality illumination.
ADAPTIVE FRONT LIGHTING SYSTEM (AFS)
This automatically adjusts the width and depth of the headlight
beams, giving maximum lighting effectiveness and optimal safety.
This is made possible by a camera mounted in the rearview mirror
and sensors that monitor several different parameters, including
the steering wheel position, the car’s speed and the way it is being
driven. AFS comes on automatically when driving in bad weather, on
motorways or in town.
TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM
The system, standard on all Ghibli models, continuously monitors tyre
pressure using a sensor integrated with the valve. The pressure can
be read on the dashboard display. In the case of a puncture or a
change in tyre pressure, the system notifies the driver with visual and
acoustic warnings.
SEVEN AIRBAGS
The Maserati Ghibli is equipped with seven airbags. Two at the front,
both dual-stage, shield the driver and front passenger in the event
of collision, while torsos and hips are further protected by two side
airbags in the front seats. There are also two window airbags in the
roof next to the central pillar. Finally, a seventh airbag protects the
driver’s legs.
