50:50 weight distribution
Lightweight construction, intelligent systems and trusted principles are key to the inimitable pleasures of grand touring in the Maserati Ghibli. With the Ghibli range, this is demonstrated by a rigid and extremely secure steel cell, using an array of steel and aluminium alloys. Together, the configuration maximises strength, minimises weight and retains the sports saloon’s perfect 50:50 weight distribution.
The Ghibli GranSport features the Skyhook suspension as standard, with shock absorbers delivering continuous damping variation. The system uses sensors that monitor the movement of each wheel and the car’s body to determine the road conditions and how the car is being driven. It then instantly adjusts the settings of each damper accordingly.
All versions of the Maserati Ghibli feature powerful Brembo brakes carefully matched to engine performance. The discs are dual-cast, combining the strength of cast iron with the lightness of aluminium to reduce unsprung mass, therefore increasing handling prowess.
