The Maserati Ghibli is a trilogy was ended twice with a cliff hanger. The third in the trilogy, thus the last in the series was only presented in 2013 and is still in production today. Its two eponymous predecessors were built from 1967 to 1973 and from 1992 to 1998. Maserati revealed with the first Ghibli in 1966 at the Turin Motor Show. Once again it was a typical Italian combination of a very powerful engine and a fashionable interior that was eye pleasing.

The first Ghibli was coded AM115, it is a two-seater designed by the seasoned designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. He designed the car to be aerodynamic and its shape resembles that of a shark. The pop-up headlights were for ahead of their time, being innovative. The interior is Italian, exceptionally fashionable. The car is powered by a powerful 4.9-liter V8 engine that produces 306 horsepower.

After six years of Ghibli, Maserati decides to stop production and it was in the 90s that Maserati nostalgically looks back at its history and the beautiful Ghibli. They decide to restart an era. Based on the Biturbo’s predecessor, they decide to launch a new Ghibli. In 1992, the world was first exposed to a second version, with model code AM336. It was presented again at the Turin Motor Show. This time Marcello Gandini had the pleasure of designing the car, another seasoned designer who knew what to do. From 1992, the new Ghibli, based on the Biturbo, is equipped with a V6 engine that was considerably smaller in capacity with 2.0 litres, due to market demand. Also a larger 2.8L engine is designed for non-European markets. Despite the smaller engine, it did not disappoint, the 302 horses make the car accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometres an hour (0-60 mph) in less than six seconds. Approximately 2,500 examples of the car were built in total, and production was stopped in 1998.

The Ghibli did too well to be eternalised in discontinuity. In 2013 Maserati decide to make it a trilogy. At the Shanghai Auto Show, Maserati unveiled the M157, another Ghibli that pleased the crowd. This Ghibli was designed with a contemporary look, featuring the distinctive Maserati style. There was a range of engines available: a 3.0L biturbo V6 engine, a 3.8L V8 diesel engine, or a monoturbo 3.0L V6 engine. The engine was handled by an automatic eight-speed transmission. As of writing, the M157 has been in production for an exact decade, and Maserati doesn't seem to have any plans in discontinuing it.

Maserati Ghibli SS

The Ghibli SS was revealed in 1969 and is therefore part of the first Ghibli edition. True to tradition, it is once again a stunningly designed car with an impressive engine architecture. Under the hood, there is a powerful V8 engine that almost hits the 5.0-liter engine capacity boundary. The engine produces 330 horsepower, a power output that left jaws dropping at that time.

Only 425 models of the Ghibli SS were sold and manufactured in total. This limited production quantity contributes to the soaring value of this Ghibli SS. The Ghibli SS combines the elegance of a beauty with the power of a beast. It is a collector's item for enthusiasts who are guaranteed to be left speechless.
