10,000th Maserati Built this Year at the Grugliasco Plant in Turin [w/Video]

Things are looking good for Maserati, which just announced that it has built its 10,000th vehicle at the Avv. Giovanni Agnelli plant in Grugliasco (Turin). Fiat retooled the plant for Maserati and reopened it on January 30 this year, making it the second plant for the Maserati brand after its historic production site in Modena.

The Grugliasco plant currently builds Maserati’s two sports luxury sedans, the Quattroporte and Ghibli. The facility is capable of a daily production of about 140 cars of both models, as it has two daily shifts.

Since the start of production, which coincided with the unveiling of the new Quattroporte, the plant has built about 8,200 units of the brand’s flagship sedan. The rest of over 1,800 units are Ghiblis, as production of the midsize luxury sedan only began at the end of July 2013.

The 10,000th vehicle built in Grugliasco was a grey Ghibli. Speaking of the Ghibli, Maserati recently released a new video showing the midsize luxury sedan testing in the wind tunnel. It’s a good excuse to once again check out the elegant lines of the Ghibli, just like the video which showed the car in the climatic tunnel.

The footage also serves to show how wind tunnel tests are performed and their contribution to reducing fuel consumption and noise levels in the cabin.
