The sophisticated ZF eight-speed automatic transmission in the Maserati Ghibli puts a world of possibilities in the palm of your hand. The advanced design of the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission ensures precise gear changes and optimum performance, giving you complete control over the power of the Ghibli engines. Thanks to auto-adaptive software, the transmission modifies its shift patterns according to your driving style, for an even more rewarding, one-to-one driving experience. When it comes to long, high-speed journeys, the last two gears, seventh and eighth, are specially calibrated to reduce fuel consumption and further increase comfort. The transmission sends power to the rear wheels of all Ghibli versions via a mechanical Limited-Slip Differential. This ensures superb traction in even challenging situations.
