Maserati Ghibli

Question:
I don’t know if I spelled that correctly, and I don’t know if it is the best name for the American market (unlike Quattroporte, which sounds so much better than “four-door”), but do you know anything about it? One was sitting in the mall the other day, and it looked great and cost only about half as much ($75K) as it’s big brother the QP. It seemed like a lot of Maserati for the money if there is such a thing. Your thoughts?

Lou Ann Hammond :

I was in Shanghai at the auto show when they unveiled the Ghibli for the first time. They got like 2,500 orders at the show alone. I talked to Harald Wester, the CEO of Maserati, about the Ghibli and Maserati at that show and at the Los Angeles auto show. Here are the interviews.

Here I am at the Maserati factory in Modena, Italy talking to the product person about the Quattroporte and Ghibli
