New Maserati Ghibli (Spied)

2012-12-20 06:28

BRAVING THE WEATHER: Spy shots of the new Maserati Ghibli reveal a smaller car compared to the Quattroporte.

Spotted out in the cold of northern Sweden was the new and smaller Maserati.

From the spy-shots it is clear this Ghibli is not as long as the Quattroporte, with the most noticeable length difference being at the rear doors.

CHRYSLER PARTS

The upcoming Ghibli is codenamed "M157" and will aim to compete with models such as the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class. It is rumoured that the next Ghibli will be built on a modified version of the Chrysler 300 chassis and will feature more Chrysler technology than Maserati.

The engine is a turbocharged version of Chrysler’s 3.5-litre Pentastar V6 with an output of 279 to 298kW. Maserati will offer the same Ferrari-sourced V8 as used in the new Quattroporte. Both engines will be mated to an eight-speed, ZF transmission.

Expect to see the new Maserati Ghibli launched sometime in 2013.
