When Maserati introduced the brand-new Ghibli for the 2014 model year, it was not the first time they automaker had used that nameplate. In fact, the Maserati Ghibli was first an iconic vehicle all the way back in 1967 through 1973, then again from 1992 to 1998. The third generation of the model might prove to be its most successful, as it’s been turning heads as an executive sedan for nearly a decade and continues to shine. We occasionally see used models pass through our inventory here in North Miami Beach FL, and they never last particularly long.
In the first generation, the Ghibli was available in variants like the Spyder and SS, then its second generation introduced the Ghibli GT. While those models are highly unlikely to show up here in our showroom, the current and third generation of the vehicle has been offered in plenty of variants itself: the standard Ghibli, the Ghibli S and the special edition Ghibli Neiman Marcus. The standard Ghibli is powered by a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 engine as standard, but it was also offered with a 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 engine that boosted power quite a bit as the Ghibli Trofeo, plus a less powerful but more efficient 3.0L turbo-diesel V6 as the Ghibli Diesel. The Ghibli S featured the same engine but was re-tuned to offer more power. In 2021, the Maserati Ghibli will be available as a hybrid model for the first time. The Ghibli Neiman Marcus was created in celebration of the automaker’s centennial birthday. The special edition was only available in the 2014 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book gift catalogue and featured some unique design cues. Only 100 of this unit were built. While it might not be easy to pronounce, it’s certainly easy to drive.
