If you say that you’ve laid eyes on many more sports car shapes that are prettier than this, than you should admit to lying to yourself – you haven’t. This 1953 Maserati A6 CGS is the kind of car that if you owned, you’d overpolish until your better half left you, after which point, over polishing would become an even greater concern…

If you want to define contrasts, then queue up a half-dozen video reviews of the Maserati Ghibli. The ratings the car will receive in them range from stellar to abysmal all quoting a very wide range of pros and cons to the point where you almost think some reviewed a different car to others.

Review Bashes Maserati Ghibli, Says it's Not a Recommendable Car

You usually buy a Mercedes E-Class-sized saloon partly to make sure there’s a lot of space inside for people and their luggage, and partly because you want to be seen in it. Most models in the class do a reasonable job of blending the two, with obvious biases towards one side of the argument, or the other.

Unveiled at this year’s Geneva Auto Show, the Maserati Alfieri study represents a vision of a 2+2 coupe that also serves as a present for the brand’s 100th birthday.

In a way, I understand why this Dubai resident chose to apply a gold wrap to his Maserati GranTurismo and to adorn it with Swarovski crystals; it’s because no one would have ever noticed his car if he had it how it left the Modena assembly plant…

Read more

Despite being a rare car, with around 1,800 examples ever made, the Maserati Merak pops up surprisingly often on the web, proving that there are still a lot of them being looked after and driven, even if it’s known that you need a lot of the former to even enjoy a bit of the latter…

Maserati Ghibli Awarded Top Safety Pick Distinction by IIHS [w/Video]


Read more

One area in which the Maserati Ghibli simply had to at least match its mainstream rivals was safety. It’s an all-new car, so it benefits from the very latest in crash protection know-how as well as both active and passive systems to take all manner of impact avoidance measures – it even comes with all-wheel drive. All told, we were not surprised it was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

More Gold Digger Pranks, This Time with Old Celica and New Maserati


Read more

From the same people that brought us the Lamborghini gold digger prank comes a similar prank, this time with a slightly different scenario. Again, the purpose of this new video is to find out whether some women are influenced by cars men drive. Will the driver prevail over the car he is driving or will it be the other way around?

Consumer Reports Tests Maserati Ghibli, Finds it a Viable Alternative in Premium Class


Read more

Consumer Reports’ review of the Maserati Ghibli is yet another positive acknowledgment for the Italian sedan, that has, as we’ve already seen explained in other tests, a lot going for it. Naturally, the first thing that drew their eye is the car's lines, which especially in the darker blue color of the tester, have a very exclusive and exotic air about them, as does the interior.

Maserati Releases Video of Ghibli Testing Inside Climatic Wind Tunnel

Say you are a car designer asked by an automaker to come up with a specific idea, for a sporty sedan with Italian flair. The trick won’t be to get it looking good and evocative, because it is already known what buyers like to see in such a car, but rather to get the looks as close to the ideal concept as possible, without negatively affecting any of the moving bits.

Maserati Tries to Fascinate us with New Ghibli Promo, But Doesn’t Quite Get There…


Read more

While some automakers are finding increasingly clever means of promoting their cars, there are still those who really take great enjoyment in doing everything by the proverbial book, even with all the inherent downsides.

It doesn’t really get more cliché than throwing together a bunch of driving shots with juxtaposed sound that never matches, featuring always good-looking business men and patronized women in the passenger’s seat, and generally selling the image of what the company thinks the ideal buyer is like.

Maserati is looking to increase its annual sales to 50,000 cars in 2015, which may be peanuts for German premium carmakers, but it's a huge deal for the Italian company that only delivered a little over 6,200 vehicles last year.

EVO Impressed by New Maserati Ghibli with Base V6 Petrol and Diesel

There was a real fear that Maserati would have ended up making a plain and ordinary car, when they announced that they were planning to sell 25,000 examples of their new Ghibli per year.

However, they did make the car very noticeable through its design (though opinions are split on its true aesthetic merits), and the car looks like a true Maserati both inside and out. Even the diesel was put into context, when they announced that Ferrari had developed the three-liter V6 unit.

First Video Proof That Maserati Ghibli's Diesel-Fed V6 Will Sound Good

Diesels have migrated in perception from being associated with clattery farm equipment, to sounding almost like their petrol counterparts, aside from at idle, when the difference is more obvious.

In fact, with new direct-injected petrol engines, the idle noise is suspiciously diesely, so even if some modern oil burners still haven’t done away with the characteristic small hammer quickly tapping on pipe sound, they should be given a chance and tried out, even (or especially) by those who thought they didn’t like them before, simply to have an informed future opinion, if nothing else.
