While I maneuver the Ghibli at walking pace thru the main street of the city center, it feels like this fine Maserati with a 3 liter Twin Turbo V6 that delivers a peak of 410 horsepower (301 kW) glides along in silence and beauty. The looks of the locals are for certain and I almost feel like I should cheer that crowd like a king, but this king speaks for itself, no doubt. While the Ghibli is gracious and boosts enough leg space and a respectable trunk, at almost 5 meters in length, it offers every attribute to the qualities of “super sports limousine” as well. While the eight speed automatic transmission is controlled by auto-adaptive software and feels like it can magically read your style of driving, you may want to switch to the Manual Sports Gear mode and activate the multi link suspension for racetrack conditions. And, that’s where the real fun begins. Once you push the start button — a smile will appear when you catch a loud and clear roar. Acceleration from 0 to 100 in 4,8 seconds lets you experience this fantastic and mind blowing sound and performance. This Ferrari engineered engine has undoubtedly one of the best sounds on the market today. While you’d have the option to enjoy Gustav Mahler’s Symphony no. 2 on a silent Sunday afternoon cruise or maybe something a bit more daring like Royal Blood’s “little Monster” on the Bowers & Wilkins premium surround system, you might just opt to listen to that pure sound, and that, just never gets old.
