Italian luxury sports car manufacturer Maserati has launched the Ghibli MY21 range in India at a starting price of Rs 1.15 crores. Interestingly it the first car to offer a hybrid model in the company’s history. The new model carries forward the spirit that shaped the original Ghibli back in 1966.
The 2021 restyled signature grille bearing the iconic Maserati Trident clearly states your daring character. Inspired by the Giugiaro-penned Maserati 3200 GT “boomerang” rear lights that pioneered the use of LED in the industry, the new MY21 tail lights are a delight for your inevitable followers to admire. Dynamically sculpted curves and gracefully flowing lines. A striking coupé look makes it impossible to go unnoticed.
In addition to class-leading 3.0-litre V6 & V8 Petrol engines, an all-new 4-cylinder 2.0-litre engine with a 48V Hybrid system is now available. All powertrains offer everything you would expect of Maserati: massive power, snarling responsiveness, effortless long-distance refinement and impressive efficiency.
The Full-LED Adaptive Matrix headlamps accentuate the distinctive Maserati look while significantly improving visibility and lower energy usage. With 15 LEDs operating at full beam, these headlamps offer a 200% greater field of vision than traditional headlamps.
The MY21 Ghibli is equipped with a comprehensive range of Level-2 ADAS, the highest level of autonomous driving currently permitted. It means even greater peace of mind in a variety of traffic conditions.
Lightweight construction and intelligent systems are key to the inimitable pleasures of grand touring. This is demonstrated by a rigid and secure steel cell using an array of steel and aluminium alloys. This configuration maximises strength, minimises weight and retains the perfect 50:50 weight distribution.
The company collaborates with Brembo, the global leader in the design and production of braking systems. Maserati brake callipers add a substantial touch of style to your car with their metallic colour flashing from behind the wheel rims. Release and close the trunk with a foot movement in the area under the rear bumper. Sensors will detect foot movement all along and underneath the central portion of the rear bumper. This system will only operate when the key fob is within a 3-foot range.
The Ghibli is equipped with Skyhook suspensions with shock absorbers to deliver continuous damping variation. The system uses sensors that monitor each wheel’s movement and the vehicle body to determine the road conditions and how the vehicle is being driven. It then instantly adjusts each damper for optimal ride comfort.
The spark of electrification ignites Maserati’s future with the new Ghibli Hybrid, the Trident Brand enters the world of electrification. The new Ghibli Hybrid represents one of the most ambitious projects for Maserati, which after the announcement of the new MC20 super sports car now sets the seal on another step forward towards the brand’s new Era.
