PostHeaderIcon Pops’ Rants: The New BMW M5 Isn’t Worth the Premium; Audi’s Naming Strategy is Dumb

It’s Friday again, and I’m having a bad day. And I’ll probably have a bad weekend too because I just found out that FCA will shut down the Conner assembly plant in a few days. Why is this a big deal? Because the Dodge Viper will die along with it. Yeah, it’s no big surprise. The Viper had it coming, and we knew it would happen since 2015, but the thought of America’s greatest modern muscle car being killed off is depressing. And please don’t tell me about the Chevrolet Corvette and Dodge Challenger Demon, this is a sad day for American sports car enthusiasts regardless of what other performance vehicles you can get.

And, you know what bothers me more? The fact that FCA does nothing about it. Yeah, Chrysler claims the Viper has to die due to slow sales, but we all know that’s not the reason. It all has to do with new safety regulations, which require that all production models have side airbag curtains. And, you can’t fit them in the current Viper. It needs a new platform and a new design. So why isn’t FCA making a successor? It’s too expensive obviously, and it would rather go bankrupt with a bunch of crappy cars rather than a performance coupe. So many decades of experience and FCA still doesn’t know that an iconic car requires a lot of work. But enough about the Viper, it’s been a hectic week.

PostHeaderIcon Maserati Ghibli GranLusso

Introduced in 2013, the Ghibli became Maserati’s second four-door sedan. Smaller than the Quattroporte, it was developed as a competitor for the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. It’s also the first sedan that slots under the Quattroporte since the four-door version of the Maserati Biturbo was discontinued in 1994. The Ghibli name was revived after a 15-year hiatus, but it’s the first time when it’s being used on a four-door sedan, as both the first- and second-generation models, produced between 1967-1973 and 1992-1998, were offered as two-door coupes and convertibles only. After four years on the market, the third-generation Ghibli received its mid-cycle facelift.

In a strategy that reminds of Ferrari, the Ghibli was renamed the Ghibli GranLusso. The “GranLusso” isn’t new though, as Maserati is already using in on a trim level of the upgraded Quattroporte. The revised sedan made its debut at the Chengdu Motorshow in China with updated bumpers and side skirts, improved aerodynamics, and new features. The drivetrains carry over unchanged, but this is far from surprising given that both the GranTurismo and Quattroporte didn’t get engine upgrades with their facelifts. Still, there’s plenty of changes to talk about, so join me in my review for the full rundown.

Following the success of the Quattroporte GranLusso Maserati has now come up with a Ghibli featuring the same treatment. Set for debut at Chengdu Motorshow in China, Maserati Ghibli GranLusso is “s restyled and enriched with additional high-tech features.”

The luxury sports sedan should be instantly distinguishable from its regular siblings. Maserati Ghibli GranLusso comes with a new front bumper with dedicated chrome inserts and new front grille with chrome bars, as well as body-color side skirts, GranLusso fender badges, new rear bumper, and rear diffuser. Maserati says the new component make the Ghibli more aerodynamic besides giving it a cooler look.

In terms of features, Maserati Ghibli GranLusso comes with Adaptive full LED Headlights with glare free Matrix High-Beam – also contributing to the distinctive look – and active ADAS functionalities which is Maserati’s ticket for entering the world of world of autonomous driving. Although why in the world would you want a Maser that drives itself is a question we don’t know the answer to. Why would you pay all that money and then give the joy of driving a fine Italian sports sedan to a computer?

PostHeaderIcon Maserati Ghibli Nerissimo Edition

The current Maserati Ghibli was introduced in 2013, reviving a nameplate that was produced between 1967 and 1998. Unlike its predecessors, which were offered as two-door coupes and convertibles only, the new Ghibli is a four-door sedan. Sharing underpinnings with the larger Quattroporte and the recently launched Levante SUV, the Ghibli is the first Maserati to use a diesel engine. The oil burner is offered alongside two versions of the twin-turbo, 3.0-liter, V-6 gas-drinker that was co-developed with Ferrari. At the New York Auto Show, the Italian firm launched the Ghibli Nerissimo, a limited-edition model with bespoke features inside and out.

The name Nerissimo is based on the Italian expression for “extremely black,” and there’s a good reason why Maserati selected it for this car. Although it’s identical to the standard model as far as design goes, the Nerissimo is an all-black take on the midsize sedan. It’s essentially Maserati’s very own version of the Chevrolet Midnight Edition, but in a more elegant package and with a more expensive sticker. The Nerissimo Edition is limited to only 450 units, which explains the rather hefty premium you have to pay for an appearance package.

On the other hand, the Ghibli is quite gorgeous in this black suit and adds a bit of style to an otherwise aggressive-looking sedan.

PostHeaderIcon Google Showcases Android Prototype Operating System On The Maserati Ghibli: Video

Tech giant Google is adding yet another page to its involvement in the auto industry by showcasing a concept Android system on a Maserati Ghibli during it’s annual I/O 2016 conference.

Dieter Bohn of The Verve managed to get an up-close look at the concept Android system, which can be accessed through a massive portrait-oriented touchscreen display that takes up all of the space on the Ghibli’s center console. According to Google, the purpose of this prototype is to showcase the future of what its Android platform can do for cars. Considering that Android Auto is already available today, this prototype is probably several versions higher than that. A big part of this new prototype is to integrate a majority of the Ghibli’s functions into the Android system, essentially turning the operating system into the car’s brain, controlling even the simplest of functions like the power windows.

It’s a big step up from what’s currently available in the market and if the technology comes to pass, a day could come when a lot of cars cabin systems – possibly more – will be powered by the Android system. It’s an interesting thought and one that could be a big part of the next evolution of the auto industry.


PostHeaderIcon Mansory Maserati Ghibli Kit Revealed

Mansory Maserati Ghibli-1

Mansory has come up with a fairly thorough upgrade kit for the Maserati’s smallest and least expensive model, the Ghibli, but you wouldn’t know it’s a high-end tuner car just looking at it. Mansory Maserati Ghibli is uncharacteristically understated.

At a glance, Mansory Maserati Ghibli package includes an ultralight carbon fibre bodywork, 22-inch sports wheels, powerful performance enhancements and interior makeover treatment. The body kit consists of a two-part front lip with optional additional air ducts around the air intake, rear lip and rear diffuser. They don’t show up very much on this black example, but on a white one they should look pretty good.

The new body components are complemented with a set of Trident design MANSORY alloy wheels in sizes 9.5×22 in the front and 10.5×22 at the rear shod with Vredestein high performance tires of size 255/30R22 and 295/25R22. Moving inside, the main highlights of Mansory Maserati Ghibli include sports steering wheel and aluminium pedals as well as leather and special trims in pretty much any color you can think of.

As for the performance, Mansory has prepared a kit for both the Ghibli S and Ghibli Diesel. The petrol-powered one gets 480 bhp / 640 Nm (Standard 410 bhp / 550 Nm) while the diesel gets 310 bhp / 680 Nm (Standard 275 bhp / 600 Nm).

Wald Maserati Ghibl-R1-0

In a joint project between Wald International, Royal 1 Motorsport and ADV1 Wheels, one man is now driving around in a heavily tricked-out, extremely attractive Maserati Ghibli. Basting a unique grey paint work and gold ADV1 rims, this Wald Maserati Ghibli is quite possibly best tuned version of the car in the world right now.

Sure, you have the Novitec Ghibli and that G&S Ghibli, but neither have the visual impact of this custom model right here when you first lay eyes upon them. Wald Maserati Ghibli comes with a tailored body kit featuring front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, and rear boot lid spoiler. What R1 has done is customize these parts and wrap the whole thing in a very classy color which they have aptly names Battleship Grey.

As for the wheels, they are ADV5.2 MV2 SL in polished bronze – even though they look golden to us – measuring 21×9 inch on the front axle and 21×10.5 inch on the rear. Come to think of it, the best course of action here would be to get this kit for the looks of your Ghibli, and then install Novitec’s performance upgrade for the S model which delivers up to 476 hp and 640 Nm of torque.

PostHeaderIcon G&S Exclusive Maserati Ghibli EVO

GS Exclusive Maserati Ghibli-0

Nothing with a Maserati badge at the front needs tuning and upgrading really. That is why G&S Exclusive Maserati Ghibli comes only with a few subtle tweaks. They do, however, add up to have a profound effect on the way the car looks and feels.

G&S Exclusive Maserati Ghibli, known as EVO, features a number of carbon fiber accessories on the outside which are not that visible as to qualify as a body kit, but nevertheless improve the already great design of the car. You get small grille inserts for the bumpers, two chunky carbon pieces which could be called front spoiler, subtle boot lid spoiler, and a rear diffuser.

Other bits and pieces include carbon door handles, blacked-out roof, carbon mirrors and side vent inserts, smoked lights, and black tailpipes. The new components are then complemented with a set of OZ Racing 21-inch 3-piece wheels finished in black with white outer lips, featuring 30mm spacers which is why they look so imposing under the car.

G&S Exclusive does not offer any performance upgrade for the Ghibli, but you can order lowering springs or coilover suspension and headlight upgrades. If you get the V6S version of the Ghibli, you won’t need a power upgrade anyway.

PostHeaderIcon Maserati Ghibli Wrapped in Matte Black Suede

Maserati Ghibli Matte Black Suede-0

The guys from Impressive Wrap are some of the most creative people in this business. Doing unique, and often weird, colors is the norm for them, but every once in a while they come up with something that is properly nuts, even by their own standards. This matte black suede Maserati Ghibli is one such thing.

A normal, run-of-the-mill matte black was obviously not something the owner of this Maserati Ghibli would find attractive enough. So IW designers did a bit of brainstorming, and maybe smoked a couple of joints, and came up with this unique treatment for the Italian sedan.

The main feature of the treatment is of course the matte black suede that covers most of the body. It looks like a sort of textured matte black and has a pretty cool look about it which is really easy on the eyes. The main wrap is complemented with satin black painted wheels and golf chrome accents on the front spoiler lip, rear diffuser, side vents, and door handles.

This whole thing of course is not something that would appeal to everyone. We quite like the suede wrap because it’s unique and kinda cool, but the gold accents are a bit too much for our taste. Then again, this is a much nicer thing to do than wrapping the entire car in chrome gold as some people like to!
