2014 Maserati Ghibli

2014 Maserati Ghibli

Maserati has taken the covers off the 2014 Maserati Ghibli ahead of its unveil at this month’s Shanghai Motor Show. With its efforts aimed directly at a segment dominated by the BMW 5-series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Italian automaker hopes to jump into the volume-friendly price point on its way to 50,000 cars a year by 2015 as they announced a while back.

As you can see, the Ghibli will be sportier than the Quattroporte though don’t expect the interior to be anything short of what you’d expect from Maserati. The 2014 Ghibli will be offered up in a few different powertrains with a pair of 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engines (one gas, one diesel) helping to lead the charge. Mated to eight-speed automatic transmissions, expect a rear-wheel-drive configuration to come standard while Maserati’s new Q4 all-wheel-drive system will also be available.

Here we have some early shots of the 2013 Maserati GranCabrio MC Stradale. The MC Stradale will be a bit lighter than the GranCabrio Sport and features an enhanced transmission that swifts through gears much faster. Details are still quite limited but the imagery shows some changes in the front and rear bumpers, a dual exhaust mated with the rear diffuser, a trunk lip spoiler, and a new set of rims.

Introducing | Maserati Kubang SUV Concept

Though it’s been in the rumor mill for quite sometime now, Maserati has finally unveiled the Kubang, a concept SUV that may be a pre-cursor to what the Italian manufacturer’s first Sport Utility will look like. Maserati is looking to build the Kubang concept on the same Michigan assembly line as the Jeep Grand Cherokee but will leave the engine manufacturing to Italy’s Paolo Martinelli, who brings over thirty years of experience at Ferrari. The video below blends Maserati’s history with their future endeavor.

Paris Auto Show | Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale

Ahead of the 2010 Paris Auto Show comes a look at next year’s Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale. The newest addition to the already high-octane Maserati lineup also looks to be the fastest, lightest and most powerful. Top speed’s to crack the 186mph mark with power coming from a 4.7L v8 engine that cranks out 450 horses. Maserati says the MC Stradale features “razor-sharp” handling and, “Produces more aerodynamic down force without producing more aerodynamic drag, it produces more power – without using more fuel and it is more agile without sacrificing the GranTurismo S’s highly praised ride quality.”

Maserati Puts GranTurismo’s [Canvas] Top Down with GranCabrio

Maserati Puts GranTurismo's [Canvas] Top Down with GranCabrio

Now that Maserati’s finally taken the veil off their GranCabrio, the carmaker’s first-ever top-down four-seater, we can finally sit and stare at this beauty with astonishment. Power comes via a 4.7-liter, 433-hp engine from the GranTurismo S, plus legroom from the longest wheelbase of any convertible on the market. The Maserati GranCabrio puts ever hard-top convertible to shame, as it definitely makes the canvas top “cool” again. Atleast in our eyes.

It’ll run you roughly $179,000, as you’ll get the opportunity go order one this winter, with delivery to take place in the spring of 2011.
