Maserati Ghibli gets priced

The Italian company Maserati is more than just a car manufacturer. It has become a culture in terms of sports cars. The latest work is represented by the 2014 Maserati Ghibli which has been presented at the Auto China 2013 in Shanghai on 20th of April. Since then however, we’ve heard nothing on the matter. Pricing was an element of interest and curiosity has now vanished because the company announced that in the U.S.A. the vehicle costs at least $65,600.

The 2014 Maserati Ghibli challenges the success of the Quattroporte, being a more compact and a sportier alternative to it, also having an even lower and angrier looking front end. It is a prestige saloon not just an ordinary car for special occasions. Although the Ghibli is more expensive than a silimarly equipped BMW-5 Series or Mercedes E-Class, the company is confident that the sales will not be disappointing.

The supercar will be powered by different engines types. It comes with a V6 3.0-liter turbocharged engine and for the first time in Maserati's history, it also has a diesel engine in the form of a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel. Both of them will be connected to an eight-speed automatic gearbox that will work together with a rear wheel drive setup or the new optional Q4 all wheel drive system. The first engine version generates 345 bhp (257 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque and enables the sedan to sprint from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds and to reach a maximum speed of 165 mph (266 km/h). The most powerful variant develops 404 bhp (301 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque, figures that allow the Ghibli to run the 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds before going to a peak speed of 175 mph (282 km/h). The all-new 2014 Maserati Ghibli represents a break from the ordinary in the mid-size sedan segment and it will certainly attract clients.
