Ghibli name was revived in 1992 when Maserati introduced the
Ghibli II. The previous Ghibli model ran from 1966 - 1973.
The Ghibli II was powered by a variety of engines; a 2.0 litre
V6 for the Italian market and a 2.8 litre V6 for other countries,
operated via a six-speed manual transmission (early 2.8 cars
have a 5 speed maunal) or 4 speed automatic. The two-door, four-seater
coupe was similar in appearance to the Maserati
Shamal, and did not sell as well as anticipated
In 1994, the car was revised. A refreshed interior, new wheels,
a fully adjustable electronic suspension and ABS brakes were
added. Another round of improvements resulted in the Ghibli
GT in 1996. It was fitted with spoked alloy 17" wheels,
and had suspension and transmission modifications.
The coupe was built for luxury as well as performance. The car
featured a Connolly leather interior with burl elm trim.
The Ghibli II has a top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h) and a 0-60
mph acceleration time of 5.7 seconds.
The final year of production for the Ghibli II was 1997. It
was replaced in the Maserati lineup by the 3200
GT the following year.
Several special edition models were produced by Maserati. The
first was the Ghibli KS (Kit Sportivo), followed by the race
version Ghibli Open Cup which featured improved power through
roller-bearing turbos, a freer-flowing exhaust, and remapped
fuel computers. The Cup also featured a toned-down carbon fiber-trimmed
interior with aluminum pedals and a MOMO steering wheel, and the drivetrain included tweaked suspension and
Brembo brakes. To celebrate the world speed record on water,
Maserati made a further 35 special edition Ghiblis called the
Ghibli Primatist, featuring bright blue paintwork and blue /
At the time the Ghibli Cup had the highest ever per litre power
output of any street legal car, surpassing the Bugatti EB110,
Ferrari F40 and Jaguar XJ220, however there are numerous cars
now available with higher power per litre outputs.
