Maserati Ghibli Trofeo

Maserati Ghibli Trofeo

Maserati has expanded its Trofeo collection with the introduction of new Quattroporte and Ghibli Trofeo are now available.

To highlight once again Maserati’s all-Italian identity, the colours chosen for the Trofeo collection launch are those of the Italy’s flag: green for Quattroporte, white for Levante and red for Ghibli.

Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo have a 3.8-litre V8 Twin Turbo with power output of 580 hp (433 kW) at 6,250 rpm and peak torque of 730 Nm. The engine is built at the Ferrari plant at Maranello to Maserati’s specifications.

Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo can proudly claim to be the fastest Maserati sedans ever, with a top speed of 326 km/h. Levante Trofeo’s maximum speed is 302km/h.

They have the Maserati Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) system, with a specific setup that guarantees enhanced driving dynamics. The sedans have the Corsa button that sets the car for an even sportier driving style. Also included is Launch Control.

Styling touches include the front grille with twin vertical bars in Black Piano finish and the introduction of carbon fibre on the front air duct trims and rear extractor.

All Trofeo models have red details that characterise the bottom profiles of the side air vents and the lightning bolt on the Trident badge on the C-pillars.

There are major changes at the rear of the car, where the light clusters have been completely restyled, with a boomerang-like profile inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.

Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo are fitted with 21” aluminium Orione wheels. 22” Orione wheels are available on Levante Trofeo.

The headrests bear the Trofeo badge with the name in three-dimensional relief. Upholstery is in full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather.
