Maserati Unveils Limited Edition Ghibli Ribelle, On Sale Next Month

Maserati will unleash a new version of the Ghibli dubbed ‘Ribelle’, scheduled to go on sale in EMEA markets this October. The Trident brand will only build 200 units of this limited edition saloon.

According to Maserati, what makes this Ribelle version special compared to other Ghibli models is its exclusive design and elegant interior trims, united around the the sophisticated NeroRibelle mica color, joined by a set of shiny black 19-inch Proteo alloys with contrasting red laser etched details and red calipers.

Inside, the Ghibli Ribelle boasts a two-tone black/red dashboard, black door panels with a red central armrest, a black leather Sport steering wheel with tone-on-tone stitching, plus steering wheel paddle shifters. Then there are the sports seats, dressed up in full premium leather, featuring a two-tone black/read aesthetic with contrast stitching.

Buyers should also enjoy seeing the chromed aluminum badge for the Trident logo on the central console, combined with the new Ribelle logo – just to let you know this isn’t your everyday Ghibli.

Still, if that’s not enough, you can always opt for the optional Ribelle Plus package, which adds laminated privacy windows for enhanced thermal and sound insulation, full-LED Matrix adaptive headlights, a sunroof and a Harman Kardon premium sound system.

Available on the Ghibli Ribelle are all of the sport saloon’s three power units, specifically the 275 PS (271 HP) V6 turbo-diesel and the two twin-turbo V6 petrol options with 350 PS (345 HP) and 430 PS (424 HP) specifically.

    An “almost” car for me. Like the A8 perhaps it’ll be better as a Mark 2. The styling isn’t quite right, the quality fit and finish definitely isn’t and to drive it was…OK but no more. It’s not even as sporty as a Jaguar XF-R or a BMW M-sport and surely it should be the definition of a sports sedan? The LE’s tell you none of the models in the current range are selling well and they’re doing what they can to sustain interest. Love the brand but nothing they make at the moment.

    i want it !!!

    Those 19″ wheels are a weird choice when they have some awesome new forged 21″ wheel designs for MY19.

    • Bash

      They’ve probably more than enough “performance” wise, I see your point, many potential buyers of this type of cars tend to go with more bling or more aggressive design or simply “more” anything.

  • Bash

    Nice, but probably would opt for a larger wheels instead of those 19”. If I’m in the market for such a car.

    • europeon

      The only difference between a “standard” car and this limited edition are the specific dual-tone seats. Everything else you can spec on a “standard” car, and even more.

    Until this car gets a V8, it’s irrelevant.

    The rim size is fine (and I like their coloring), I hate the trend of increasing their sizes to absolute limits.

    Doug DeMuro effectively destroyed what little credibility Maser has left.

    I can’t see Maser’s now without thinking “cheap FCA switchgear, outdated Chrysler infotainment options, and toothpaste fitted into gigantic interior panel gaps!”.

    Thanks Doug!

      And when you come to think that the switchgear is actually not cheap at all, and its inherited from Mercedes, UConnect is one of the best infotainment systems out there (and it got upgraded), and the toothpaste “gap” is a design choice, present in most Alfa Romeos and Ferraris of late as well.

        I was wondering where you were europeon. How’ve you been?

        • europeon

          I’m silently judging and observing from the shadows the tabloidization of this sit e.

          • ksegg

            Not that I’m a huge Maser fan, but to be fair – I take whatever DeMuro says with a grain of salt.
