2014 Maserati Ghibli Road Test Video Review


At the end of the day the Maserati Ghibli is a cut-rate Italian exotic car. You can see where the costs were cut, but that is just fine because for $67k you get something that is priced like a Mercedes and drives like a proper Maserati. Last year this Italian car company sold just over 6000 cars and by 2015 they want to sell 50,000. But the current offering of $100k luxury and sports cars will not cut the mustard. So how do they plan to close the Gap? With the all new Ghibli which is essentially a Maserati with a Hyundai price tag. Up until now, if you wanted a Maserati it would cost upwards of 6-figures. This new 2014 Maserati Ghibli is based on the Quattroporte but starts at just $66,900.

So how can Maserati provide a highly luxurious car without the expensive price tag. One way is by cutting down the use of high-end bits and replacing them with Chrysler parts. The important thing to note is that all the good stuff is still Maserati. The chassis is from the larger Quattroporte and the engine is a Maserati designed and Ferrari built twin-turbo V-6 with 350 horsepower in the base model and 404 horsepower in the Ghibli S model.
