Italian Flair – Ferrari Developed Power – Four Door Grand Tourer
The Maserati Ghibli is a powerful four door Grand Tourer that oozes Italian style and flair. The name "Ghibli" comes from an African desert wind and this car fits its name perfectly.
As a large sports saloon the Ghibli offers a real alternative from the usual Germanic exec' mobile's. The Maserati makes these rivals look almost ordinary with its sharp, free-flowing shark like styling. Indeed few cars look quite as dramatic as the Ghibli with its long bonnet tapering down to a low open-mouthed grill bejeweled with the distinctive trident badge and small headlights all together forming a rather menacing yet sexy look. In profile the panels rise and fall as they flow around the large wheels with the front ones housing three air intakes. With its narrow glazed area and sloping roofline, the overall look is one of premium, luxury sportiness.
This car is a breath of fresh air, or indeed desert wind, for those in need of something fast, extravagant and luxurious. Step inside and it is clear you're entering a Maserati with its own distinct flair and character. There's frameless glass in the doors, armchair-style seats plus leather and wood trim throughout, an 8.5in touchscreen multi-media system sits centrally and within the drivers' instrument cluster analogue dials live comfortably alongside smart digital displays. The dashboard look is finished off with Maserati's traditional and unique oval faced clock.
The driving position is excellent with plenty of room and support having everything comfortably to hand. The eight speed ZF automatic gearbox provides for smooth and rapid changes whilst the handling feels taut, sporting and directly in line with what you might hope for and expect in a Maserati saloon. The baritone growl from the quad tailpipes adds real drama and signifies the sporting heritage of this all-round highly capable grand tourer.
Hire this thoroughbred Italian Stallion from The Dream Collection and experience the desert winds, even if you are driving through Mayfair.
