MODENA, Italy – Maserati hopes to further underline the importance of the name Ghibli (after a hot and dry North African wind) within its range with a limited edition to be launched by the Trident brand from October 2018

The new Maserati Ghibli Ribelle, only 200 cars – offers buyers exclusive design and elegant interior trim that shares a common denominator: the refined, sophisticated, NeroRibelle mica colour intended to show off the car’s unique design ”to exquisite effect”.

This limited edition will be available with one of the sport sedan’s three engines: 131kW V6 turbodiesel and twin-turbo V6 units delivering variously 262kW and 322kW, designed by Maserati Powertrain and built by Ferrari at Maranello in Italy.

The Ghibli’s elegant silhouette is said to have acquired a new dimension thanks to the metallic tone of the Nero Ribelle colour – a ”sophisticated shade superlatively co-ordinated with the exclusive shiny black 19” Proteo alloy wheel rims (right) with contrasting red etched detail.

CABIN GOES TWO-TONE

The brake callipers are also red.

The interior of the Ghibli Ribelle has a two-tone black/red facis, black door panels, red centre armrest, black leather steering wheel with tone-on-tone stitching, and steering-wheel paddle-shifters.

The seats (12 position memories) are in full premium leather, again two-tone black/red with contrasting stitching – something only available for this limited edition.

The uniqueness of the new Ghibli limited’s cabin is further emphasised by a chromed aluminium badge bearing the Trident trade mark combined with the new Ribelle logo. Located on the central console, in piano-black wood, it is clearly visible to all the vehicle’s occupants to establish its unique, exclusive character.

For this Ghibli Ribelle edition, Maserati also offers the optional Ribelle Plus package of even more luxury with laminated privacy windows for better thermal and sound insulation, full-diode matrix adapting headlights, a Harman Kardon premium sound system, and opening sunroof.

The Ghibli Ribelle limited edition of 200 cars will be for sale in EMEA region markets from October 2018
