Luxury automotive aficionados Maserati have announced that their Ghibli and Quattroporte models will be transformed into super sedans to join the line up in their impressive Trofeo Collection.
First came Levante, which was presented in 2018, as the Granturismo philosophy in the body of an SUV with a potential speed of 302 kilometers an hour. Now, Ghibli and Quattroporte will be available in this Trofeo version and will take up the mantle amongst this superlative Maserati range.
They will boast the same distinguishing features, remaining true to their original identities – sedans according to Maserati – but in a superlative new expression. With the power to hit 326 kilometers an hour: these are the fastest factory-issued Maserati sedans ever.
Representing the ultra-modern fulfillment of the brand’s racing promise, since its 1960’s inception, Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo represent a further evolution of the luxury sedan model.
Animated by a 580 horsepower V8 engine, they will propel on 21-inch wheels, the largest sizes within this range. The hood of the Ghibli, already considered one of the most beautiful sedans ever, will boast two supplementary air vents, which relieve the heat whilst not stifling its signature roar. The lateral air vents, on the other hand, are bordered in red and wield the Trofeo name.
The interiors are to be wrapped in full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather and, just like the exteriors, they will boast 100 percent carbon-fiber inserts: Ghibli and Quattroporte in their Sunday best.
Even the infotainment offering is new: a processor that’s four times as powerful, screen resolution that’s ten times better, and memory with twice the capacity of the previous version. This new system, featuring a high-resolution screen similar to a tablet, will render the user experience much more enjoyable, complete, and customizable.
Reflecting its proud Made in Italy roots, the Italian flag will embellish the central pillar, and for their official launch, the Quattroporte model will be green, white Levante, and red Ghibli. Furthermore, Levante Trofeo has been restyled with new rear lights, a new infotainment system, and new design features.
Trofeo redefines what a sedan and an SUV can be, offering an exciting evolution of this range. For Maserati, it is more about surpassing preconceptions and expectations, than simply innovating, and so far it certainly seems to be mastering that.
