The last time we saw a Maserati Ghibli was 1997. I clearly remember 1997 but for many people, that’s a very long time. During this time gap; Mercedes introduced CLS, BMW introduced 6-Series Gran Coupe, Porsche introduced Panamera, Audi introduced A7 and Jaguar XF!
The last Maserati Ghibli never experienced a competition like this. And the German brands not only offer driving experience but also offer state-of-art technology. Pre-crash systems, night vision, 20-way seat adjustment, seat massage, semi-automatic driving functions and many more. Except Jaguar XF, the rest of German cars are kind of derivatives of other existing models. (E-Class to CLS, 5-Series to 6-Series, A6 to A7). Furthermore, German cars offer wide range of engine options to capture any market gap. That’s the reason we can see many of these vehicles on the street all the time.
I am not against any of the German four-door coupe cars and would definitely buy a 6-Series Gran Coupe. I love the cars with lots of electronic functions. However, if you are considering these gadget features is not your style, not planning to invest a house price to something with four-wheel and if you want something really exclusive. You need to buy a Maserati Ghibli.
Maserati Ghibli was never the pinnacle of the automotive industry but it always protected its unique character and soul. An Italian car is a soul, you are not going to look for an automatic breaking function on an Italian car. If you want to experience something new in automotive world and feel special, you need buy a Maserati. Ghibli is your first step to enter the world of Maserati and a bit Ferrari.
Also, Maserati has a very long heritage of motor racing, owning a Ghibli is the first step of experiencing this epic heritage.
