Maserati – Ghibli Coupè

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 coupè 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.
