The dry south-westerly wind – the Maserati Ghibli

Ghibli is the name for the hot dry south-westerly wind of the Libyan desert. This is the name Maserati gave to one of their sports car in the sixties. Twenty years later, the model was reborn, when the second generation of “Ghibli” saw the daylight.

“Ghibli II” was designed by Marcello Gandini, famous Italian car designer who have drawn many iconic sports cars for different brands. But the car was an evolution of the previous Biturbo coupés; the doors, interior, and basic bodyshell were carried over from the Biturbo.

Everything about the Ghibli says performance and style. This two door coupe can carry four adults in style and comfort, whilst delivering not only blistering performance but excellent roadholding and a refined elegant interior. The line of the Ghibli is bold but at the same time soft such as to anticipate the car’s sporting intent even from rest.  The form is a happy marriage of style and aerodynamics. To confirm it’s sports car status, the V6 power output is 306 bhp, ensuring acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just six seconds.

The legend of Maserati is synonymous with performance and class. The Maserati “Ghibli” coupé was the response to the demanding needs of sports car buyer in the 1990s.
