Maserati – Ghibli Coupé

The Maserati Ghibli appeared in 1967 as Maserati’s answer the Lamborghini Miura and Ferrari 275GTB/4. The Ghibli may not have had the wow factor of the Miura, but the Giorgetto Giugiaro (of Ghia) penned body was quite striking in its own right. It was a huge departure from the attractive but more traditional Sebring that it replaced. The long, flat hood swept gently up to a steeply raked windscreen and over a fastback roofline.


Vehicle Overview

Exploiting the success of the V8 engine, fitted both to the Quattroporte and 4-seat Mexico coupé, in 1966 Maserati presented at the Turin Motor Show the most sports version of their range, a sleek 2-seat coupé which in the name recalled its exciting performance: Ghibli, the desert wind. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and built by Carrozzeria Ghia, the Ghibli is believed one of the most beautiful example of the Italian styling of the Sixties: the engine position, in the front and very low, thanks to the dry oil sump lubrication, allowed Giugiaro to design a low, sports but at the same time elegant body which had a great sale success. Produced in both 4.7-liter and 4.9-liter engine version (the latter called Ghibli SS), both coupé and spider, the Ghibli could be fitted on request with the automatic transmission too.
