Ghibli Diesel - Exterior
The Ghibli Diesel’s design strongly reflects its sporting pedigree
The Ghibli Diesel, the first ever Maserati diesel-powered car, still has a strong, unmistakable sporting pedigree: this is obvious right away the thanks to the coupé-like streamlined silhouette, the narrow windows and the very pronounced triangular C-pillar. Its dynamic profile is emphasised by the sculpted forms of the mudguards, which blend into a central form with clearly defined linking lines.
A thrusting, aggressive nose
The front of the car is dominated by the distinctive Maserati radiator grille, with concave vertical fillets inspired by the GranTurismo and the A6 GCS Berlinetta, a famous icon from the past. The matt black finish of these features contrasts with the chromed surround and the large Trident logo suspended in the centre, on which the aggressive headlights converge. The design of the radiator grille is emphasised by the line of the mudguards and the long engine hood.
Distinctive luminous surrounds
The front light assemblies make skilful use of LED technology to underline the car’s strong personality: highly effective Bi-Xenon headlights are combined with the Daytime Running Light function, which makes the car immediately recognisable and visible in all conditions. Incorporated in the headlight units, the LED indicator lights replicate the distinctive motif of the three Maserati signature side air-vents.
The tapered rear gives this fairly large car a sleek silhouette
The triangular C-pillar and frameless door windows give the car the look of a sleek coupé, even though its length and wheelbase are amongst the longest in the class. To the rear, the tapered design of the boot is the natural continuation of the cabin, while the two LED lights provide continuity with the mudguards. The twin exhaust tailpipes also enhance the sporty look.
