The Ghibli Cup was derived directly from the Open Cup racing version and was modified for use on public roads. Launched at the Bologna Motor Show in December 1995, the 2-liter V6 was rated at 330hp at 6,500rpm, giving the car an effective top speed of 270km/h and making it the world's most powerful 2-litre production car. The torque value was very constant above 350Nm from 3,250 to 6,700rpm. Compared to the normal Ghibli, the suspension was lowered and stiffened and the front discs were now drilled and equipped with Brembo calipers. Externally, the car was somewhat understated but the game was given away by 5-spoke Speedline alloy wheels and the racing-type aluminium fuel cap at the base of the rear pillars. A discreet Ghibli Cup logo was located on both the doors, and vailable colors were limited to red, white, yellow or a shade dubbed French Blue. The interior was the sportiest yet in the Biturbo family, using carbon fibre inserts instead of wood. It was further distinguished by a Momo Racing steering wheel, drilled aluminium pedals and black Connolly leather seats. Just 60 Ghibli Cups were made, each one bearing a numbered plaque on the dash, though interestingly a further 15 Ghibli Cups were produced upon request with a tweaked version of the 2.8-litre engine.
