It Took Maserati 6 Years To Manufacture 100,000 Ghibli Sedans

On Tuesday morning, Maserati celebrated the production of the 100,000th Ghibli at its Avv. Giovanni Agnelli plant in Turin, Italy. Named after the man who founded Fiat in 1899, the factory also puts together the Quattroporte luxury sedan.

The milestone car is a Ghibli S Q4 in the GranSport trim, with a Blu Emozione exterior on top of a black leather interior, equipped with Matrix LED headlights, 20-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers and piano black inserts.

The vehicle is destined for the Italian market, where it will put its 430 PS (424 hp / 316 kW), 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 to good use. In this spec, the AWD executive sedan hits the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark in 4.7 seconds and tops out at 286 km/h (178 mph). Other engines available for the Ghibli are the 350 PS (345 hp / 257 kW) V6 petrol and 275 PS (271 hp / 202 kW) V6 diesel, all of which comply with the latest Euro 6D emissions regulations.

During assembly, each Ghibli is meticulously inspected, with technicians making sure that everything functions as it should. After the final badge is put on the car, it is road-tested for approximately 40 km (25 miles) by a professional driver prior to being shipped to customers.

Maserati premiered the Ghibli at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show. Since then, it has been updated a few times, including in 2017, when the GranLusso and GranSport trim levels were presented at the Chengdu Motor Show, in China. At last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the car received restyled internal components, a new gearshift lever and more leather options.

    They could have done it in 3 but 50% of the parts were needed for replacements…..

  • Leconte Dave

    Congratulations

  • blunt-o

    We don’t want cars like that anymore. It’s destroying planet and species. Grow up please.

    • Matt

      You grow up, internet activism isn’t a thing nor is it productive. Do something worthwhile with your time instead.

    • Mr. EP9

      Who is this “we” that you are talking about? There is no we there is only you,

    • Bash

      I assume that by “We”, you meant yourself and the five people you know.

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    You can’t afford it anyway.

  • Matt

    Wrong again…

  • europeon

    For comparison, BMW 5 series, Mercedes E-Klasse and Audi A6 sell each anywhere from 350 to 400k units every year. Even Jaguar XF sells 30-40k units yearly.

    • Stephen G

      It’s what makes the Ghibli exclusive.

    • maserati123

      I prefer a Maserati to some BMW or M-Benz crap that you see every second on the road.

  • This guy

    Right after the picture was taken the Ghilbi had lost enough value that it sold for $35,000.00 and already needs a new transmission.

    • europeon

      Of course. We all know how unreliable that POS ZF8HP transmission is. Fails all the time in BMWs and Audis.

  • maserati123

    NOT ONE PERSON OF COLOR IN THIS PHOTO. WTF IS GOING ON IN ITALY. PEOPLE OF COLOR SHOULD STOP BUYING MASERATIS.

    • europeon

      To offset the 99.2% white population composition in Italy, they should import some black workers from Africa. Oh wait…

      • maserati123

        Any one can do what ever they want with what ever they buy. Seems like they are many racist MFs here. I guess you guys are ⚽ fans too?

      • Nordschleife

        Clearly without those sales Maserati would be in a worse situation than what they are already in. I am so happy Maserati doesn’t share you racist views.

        • europeon

          Except that… 90% of them buy used.
          Maserati is not even making money out of them from spare parts. They’re always looking for cheap aftermarket rotors and pads, Jiffy Lube discount oil changes, and replacement parts from breakers.

          • Nordschleife

            Stop. It’s already confirmed you’re racist. Stop trying to add additional details and commentary. The point that you weren’t focusing on has been confirmed.

          • europeon

            It’s already confirmed you’re racist

            LOL, like that’s a bad thing. Also, I don’t recall the opposite ever being in question.
            I thought you want to discuss reasons.

  • maserati123

    UR just as racist as they are in Italy. I am sure there’s a Maserati Dealers in Ghana. At least one. So stop the Racism A hole.

    • europeon

      Googled for Maserati Dealers in Ghana.
      Found none.

  • Alexandro Pietro

    The Maserati Ghibli is a sofisticate car to be built by africans ,of course italians are more preparing to the job.
