 Its hand forced by the faceless and unrepentant spoilsport known as the internet, Maserati has released the first images of the 2014 Ghibli ahead of its debut at this year’s Shanghai auto show. Featuring the curves and muscular creases of the trident brand’s current design language, the Ghibli aims to bring some much-needed sex appeal to mid-size luxury sedandom.

What the Ghibli shares with its Quattroporte big brother doesn’t stop at its curvaceous appearance, with a downsized evolution of the larger sedan’s architecture serving as the underpinnings for Maser’s latest creation. The brand is adamant, though, that its size-medium offering will prove to be much sportier than the Q-porte.

Compared to the new Quattroporte, the new car’s grille is a bit tighter, the squint of its eyes is a bit more aggressive, and the fender ridges above the front wheels are more prominent. The rear also is similar, but lacks the prominent lip spoiler.

 Inside, several key elements, such as the steering wheel, the console, and the instrument panel all bear more than a passing resemblance to those of its larger sibling.

At the heart of the Ghibli is a choice of two engines, both twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 units based on Maserati's current V-8 architecture. The base model's V-6 is good for 345 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, while the uprated S version boasts 404 hp and 406 lb-ft. Both are mated to the same eight-speed automatic found in the new Quattroporte, which is an excellent paddle-shiftable ZF unit. In Europe, a sweet-sounding 3.0 turbodiesel is also on offer, but that won't arrive here any time soon, if at all. The more powerful S engine is available only with Maserati's Q4 rear-biased all-wheel-drive architecture at launch, but the standard car powers the rear wheels alone. Maserati's trademark Skyhook air suspension is standard equipment on both the base Ghibli and Ghibli S, though a traditional coil spring setup is said to be part of a future sport package (similar to that offered for the Gran Turismo). The body and chassis construction is aluminum-intensive, with the suspension's A-arms, the engine hood, and all four doors made of the lightweight material.

The second turbo-charged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine available on the Maserati Ghibli not only has an impressive power of 243kW (330hp) and 500Nm of torque, but delivers a fuel economy figure of just 9.6 litres/100km (28.8 mpg). It is much more than a fuel saving car, though, because it is capable of accelerating to 100km/h in just 5.6 seconds.

 Both of these engines, with their parallel turbochargers, were developed by Maserati Powertrain in partnership with Ferrari Powertrain and will be built by Ferrari in its world-leading engine construction facility in Maranello.

Sharing much of the technology with the Quattroporte’s 3.8-litre V8 engine, the V6 engines use petrol direct-injection technology along with two low-inertia parallel turbochargers, four continuous camshaft phasers and deliver their fuel at around 200 bar of pressure.

This technology means that while the Ghibli S V6 has a rev limiter at 6500rpm, it still delivers 90 percent of its torque from less than 1500rpm.

The Ghibli will also become the first Maserati production car in history to be powered by a diesel engine, with a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel. The 3.0-litre turbo-charged V6 develops 202kW (275hp) of power and a crushing 600Nm of torque to deliver 0-100km/h acceleration in just 6.3 seconds. Critically, its NEDC fuel economy figure is less than 6.0 litres per 100km (more than 47 mpg). It uses highly advanced Common-Rail direct fuel injection with 2000 bar of injection pressure and it also features reduced-dwell-time injectors. This helps it to deliver sequential multiple injections for highly responsive performance and cleaner emissions with a CO2 output of less than 160g/km on the combined cycle.

The Ghibli S will boast 360mm x 32mm ventilated and cross-drilled dual-cast front brake discs while it has 350mm x 28mm ventilated rear discs. It uses six-piston Brembo fixed brake callipers on the front and four-piston units at the rear to help it stop from 100km/h to zero in just 36 m. The Maserati Ghibli sits on 18-inch wheels and tyres, while the Ghibli S models ride on 18-inch staggered tyres; 19-inch, 20-inch and 21-inch wheels are available as optional extras. source:caranddriver.com,motortrend.com,lincah.com
