High-performance Maserati Ghibli Trofeo and Quattroporte Trofeo get new enginesAugust 10, 2020
The Italian brand has unveiled its Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans in the powerful Trofeo version. New items, which are equipped with V-shaped “eights” produced by Ferrari, can now accelerate to 326.6 km / h.
Unveiling a plug-in hybrid version of the Ghibli sedan last month, Maserati announced its intention to completely renew its lineup. The smaller of the company’s two sedans is making headlines again as it now has a more powerful version of the Trofeo. Another sedan from the Italian automaker, the Quattroporte also boasts this high-performance performance.
Like the charged Levante Trofeo crossover, the two powerful sedans are powered by Ferrari’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
As with the Maserati crossover, the new additions to the Trofeo range pack a powerful 580 horsepower (730 Nm). Both boast a top speed of 326 km / h, making them the fastest sedans ever to bear the Maserati logo.
The Ghibli Trofeo is slightly lighter than the Quattroporte Trofeo and therefore accelerates two tenths of a second faster to 100 km / h – it only takes 4.3 seconds. The two high-performance sedans come exclusively with rear-wheel drive, limited slip differential and eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
In addition to high power, the Ghibli Trofeo and Quattroporte Trofeo have red accents on the body to visually differentiate them from the regular versions of the same models. Updated taillights, inspired by the Alfieri concept and 3200 GT, were installed, as well as a different front bumper with a redesigned grille and carbon fiber accents.
The changes continue in the new interior, which features Trofeo-specific trim and upholstery. However, the biggest change is the redesigned infotainment system, which now features a 10.1-inch touchscreen instead of the previous 8.4-inch one. Not only is it bigger, but it also got sharper graphics after increasing the screen resolution.
Not so long ago, we wrote that the official presentation of the hybrid Maserati Ghibli took place. Italian company Maserati on Thursday, July 16, showed the first ever hybrid model Ghibli.
