LAP OF LUXURY
The 2014 Maserati Ghibli might have four doors, but it takes a backseat to no one.
Since the first Maserati Ghibli rolled off the lot in 1967, it’s always been a two-seater coupe. That’s about to change with the release of the new four-door 2014 Ghibli sedan, part of a concerted effort by Maserati to boost their sales figures by 50,000 vehicles annually by the year 2015. If the rest of the company’s new ideas are as fun to drive as their four-door Ghibli, they should have no trouble at all reaching that goal.
The new Ghibli shares most of its chassis design with its big brother, the
Maserati Quattroporte. It has the same front A-arm and rear multilink suspension design, but it’s slightly smaller, with a wheelbase that’s 6.8 inches shorter and a total length that’s shorter by almost a foot. The overall impression is of a much sportier model that’s still more practical than the standard two-door Ghibli.
