    Maserati has expanded its model lineup by introducing the Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo.

    Sitting at the top of the company’s sedan range and following in the footsteps of the Levante Trofeo that was launched in 2018, they pack a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8, which is built at Ferrari’s plant in Maranello to Maserati’s specifications.

    The V8 develops 580 HP (588 PS / 433 kW) at 6,250 rpm and 538 lb-ft (730 Nm) of torque between 2,250 and 5,250 rpm, and is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission made by ZF and rear-wheel drive with self-locking differential. The nought to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration takes 4.3 seconds in the Ghibli Trofeo and 4.5 seconds in the Quattroporte Trofeo, and top speed is identical in both models at 203 mph (326 km/h).
    The Trofeo versions of the Ghibli and Quattroporte feature double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension, tied to the Skyhook adaptive dampers and anti-roll bars. Launch control is on deck and sharpening the response and making the exhaust system more sonorous is the Corsa driving mode.

    The grille with twin vertical bars, more aggressive diffuser and red accents on the side air ducts and C-pillar Trident badge, as well as the new “boomerang-shaped” taillights inspired by the 3200 GT and Alfieri Concept, separate the two from the regular versions. Both ride on 21-inch Orione wheels and the Ghibli also boasts a redesigned bonnet with two air vents for improved engine cooling.

    Nice to see non-German luxury sedans competitor still having v8 in it. Didn't expect to see Ghibli with v8. But i think this is probably last generation of Maserati sedans with v8 in it.
    It seems Lexus is out, Genesis also (no new v8)...so we are left with BMW, Mercedes and Audi...and Jaguar in this class.

    Looks like the Quattroporte got an interior redo as well....wish that I could say the same for the Ghiblj, beautiful car let down by a lackluster interior.

    That's essentially the same interior the Quattroporte has had since the beginning, just with a new infotainment system (which the Ghibli got too).

    Damn...youre right...the Quattro wears it better but then again it is the more expensive of the two...i guess my bias against the Ghibli is showing...I've never been a fan of its interior.

    Maserati doesn't need V8 anymore because their new 3 liter V6 90° already produces 630 HP. Not to mention that Ferrari sourced engines are mote than likely much more expensive for Maserati than FCA ones.
