Diesel power extends appeal of Maserati's executive class contender

Anyone looking for a powerful, well-equipped executive saloon is spoiled for choice in today’s market, with all the prestige brands offering a wide range of models.

So it’s a good to welcome a rather more exotic contender – especially when it’s as practical and as appealing as Maserati’s Ghibli. A real game-changer for the company’s centenary year.


Maserati Ghibli

The Ghibli couldn’t be anything other than a Maserati. Even if you ignore the distinctive trident in the centre of that snarling grille there’s something about the sensual profile, tapering waistline and muscular rear haunches that set it apart. Inside, there’s a simple but striking instrument panel ahead of the three-spoke steering wheel, with rpm, speed and a dividing TFT information panel.

The two front seats, each trimmed in soft leather, are separated by a raised console for a cockpit-like ambience while the rear seats will accommodate three in comfort. Two-tone leather colour combinations and the distinctive hand-stitching of the upholstery strengthen the feeling that you’re travelling first class.

The V6 is mated to a smooth, next-generation 8-speed ZF transmission that recognises your driving style and road conditions and adapts accordingly. Drivers can choose from five operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and I.C.E. (Increased Control and Efficiency).For the chassis, the double-wishbone front and five-arm multilink rear suspension manage to reconcile business-class ride comfort with the kind of agile handling one would expect of a car carrying the Maserati badge.

Limited edition Ghibli with a darker edge

There’s one quality every Ghibli has plenty of, and that’s style. Those sleek and muscular lines bring a hint of Maserati’s legendary sports racers and grand tourers to the executive class. But now the Ribelle Limited Edition ups the ante with a package of mean and moody styling tweaks to make it even more distinctive, at an appealing package price for the 350hp petrol model.


Let’s start with the exterior, shall we? That’s what you’ll notice along with half the population of your neighbourhood. To mis-quote Henry Ford, you can have any colour you like as long as it’s Nero Ribelle, a lustrous mica black paint finish. Take a close look at the 19" Proteo Rosso alloy wheels and you’ll see amid the predominant black finish that there are five single spokes with a red pinstripe, matching the red brake callipers you can see beyond them. Like the flash of a bright lining material on a Milanese bespoke suit, the subtle touch of red simply accentuates the moody black theme.

Inside, all Ribelle models feature a numbered limited-edition plate on the centre console, with Piano Black trim, Sport steering wheel, gearchange paddles and electric steering wheel adjustment. Then you’re faced with a choice, between the normal black leather sports seats with red stitching, or the premium leather option which features sports seats in two-tone black and red.

Choose the first option of the normal seats with contrast red stitching and the total package price adds £5000 to the price of a Ghibli Essence. Opt for the more opulent premium leather with two-tone sorts seats in black and red, and the price goes up a further £500 to £5,500. Either way you’re getting the prestige of a limited edition with multiple additional features for less than it would cost to specify the individual items.


The Ribelle limited edition package is available for the 350hp V6 petrol model, with acceleration from 0-62mph in just 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 166mph. It comes as standard with seven airbags, the Maserati Stability System and the 8.4" Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+) unit, a state-of-the-art system that features both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® mirroring functions.
