The Ghibli's 3 litre Twin Turbo V6 is an engine designed to achieve even lower fuel consumption and emissions while still guaranteeing stunning sporty performance. The result is
available at engine speeds from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm.
LOW CONSUMPTION, SPORTY VERVE
Compared to the more powerful unit installed on the Ghibli S, this six-cylinder engine has specifically designed camshafts and injectors, combined with different turbine mapping and a
customised electronic control system. These modifications have cut consumption even further without impacting on its response to the throttle. From a standstill, the Maserati Ghibli
springs to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds; its top speed is 263 km/h.
The key task of managing the Ghibli's handling is entrusted to the extremely sophisticated suspension system. The aluminium arms of the double-wishbone front suspensions are higher up for
precise handling, while the five-arm multilink system used at the rear is ideal for reconciling ride comfort with sporty performance.
The servo assisted hydraulic steering system ensures optimum “feel” at the wheel, with no annoying impression of artificial assistance when cornering at high speed. Specifically designed to
make driving as much fun as possible, the Ghibli's steering system is light and smooth at all times, even when parking. This effectiveness in all situations is further enhanced by a new
aluminium steering box.
Maserati Ghibli S
THE 410 HP V6 ENGINE DELIVERS THRILLS WITH EVERY TOUCH OF THE ACCELERATOR
The 2.979 litre Twin Turbo V6 installed on the Ghibli S is designed to provide a powerful driving experience; it generates 410 horsepower (301 kW) at 5,500 rpm and in Sport mode reaches a maximum
torque of 550 Nm at just 1,750 rpm. The amazing specific torque value of 183 Nm per litre ensures an aggressive response that will deliver pure excitement with the slightest touch of the
A PROPULSION UNIT WITH A MYRIAD OF FUEL-SAVING INNOVATIONS
The V6 engine is fitted with twin parallel-mounted low-inertia turbines, which reduce turbo lag to give greater elasticity. Other innovative solutions, designed to ensure greater fuel efficiency,
include the high pressure (200 bar) direct injection system, which helps to improve combustion at all rpm, and the use of two continuous phase timing variators on both cylinder heads.
POWERFUL, LIGHTWEIGHT BREMBO DUAL-CAST DISC BRAKES
The Ghibli S's powerful Brembo brakes have dual-cast discs, which combine the properties of cast iron with the light weight of aluminium, helping to reduce the unsprung mass. Braking power
is provided by efficient monobloc calipers, with 6 pistons at the front and 4 at the rear, acting on ventilated, slotted discs of 360 mm x 32 mm and 350 mm x 28 mm respectively.
Maserati Ghibli S Q4
THE Q4 INTELLIGENT AWD COMBINES SAFETY WITH MAXIMUM DRIVING PLEASURE
The Ghibli S A4 is equipped with an innovative “on demand” all-wheel drive system capable of combining the utmost driving pleasure with absolute safety on all road surfaces. Normally, it is up
to the rear-wheel drive system to transfer the power of the V6 to the terrain, but if the road surface turns slippery or the wheels lose grip, the system instantaneously (in just 150 milliseconds)
transfers the necessary drive force to the front wheels.
GT HANDLING THANKS TO SOPHISTICATED SUSPENSIONS AND AUTO-ADAPTIVE TRANSMISSION
In terms of handling, the adoption of front double wishbone and rear five-arm multilink suspension combines comfort with sporty handling, while the new eight speed ZF automatic transmission is
controlled by auto-adaptive software able to switch from the smooth gear shifts of Auto Normal mode to the Manual Sport mode, which gives the driver full control over all gear changes.
TORQUE IS DISTRIBUTED BY A COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT, QUIET SYSTEM
On the Ghibli S Q4, drive torque distribution is electronically controlled by a special algorithm that processes a large number of the car's dynamic parameters. In mechanical terms the system
transfers the drive torque to the front wheels by means of electronically controlled wet multiple plate clutches: a compact, lightweight and quiet solution.
