About the Maserati Ghibli Trofeo

What you’re looking at is the fastest production sedan in Maserati history. Given the brand’s impressive motorsport history stretching back decades, that’s an impressive feat. The Maserati Ghibli Trofeo is powered by a 3.8 liter twin-turbocharged V8, generating 580 thundering, stampeding horsepower and 538 lb/ft of torque. That power is sent through a ZF 8-speed transmission that’s capable of lightning-fast shifts as the Ghibli Trofeo rockets to 60 miles per hour in just four seconds. While the standard Ghibli is already a head-turner, the Ghibli Trofeo sets itself apart with specialized, aerodynamic design cues that are both handsome and functional. Inside you’ll find that the Ghibli Trofeo is trimmed with the finest materials for a sporting experience that’s as refined as any luxury car. When the roar of the twin-turbo V8 simply isn’t enough music for your ears, the Maserati Connect system places all of your favorite multimedia functions at your fingertips.

What the Critics Say

“On a couple of highway-heavy day trips, punctuated at their end by blasts through the countryside, the suburbs and the city, the Trofeo really showed its strengths. It’s an absolute delight on the interstate, providing rich comfort and immediate passing power. After the offramp, it shines especially bright on the backroads during the “last mile” (well, last twenty miles) of these kinds of outings.” – Forbes

“Do yourself a favor: Activate Sport mode and roll your right foot on the accelerator. This engine provides a mountain of torque at the low end, and once the revs climb past 5,000 rpm the rush of air through the intakes and the rapidly rotating tach needle bring to mind Maserati’s and Ferrari’s histories in racing. It almost feels more like a massive-displacement naturally aspirated engine than a compact twin-turbo V-8.” – Motor Trend

Maserati Ghibli Trofeo Styling

Race-Worthy Styling

Many subtle styling touches and small details differentiate the Maserati Ghibli Trofeo from the standard model. Several red accents are found throughout the vehicle, including the side air vents, the C-pillars, and even the trident badges themselves. A unique piano black grille is exclusive to the Trofeo, as are carbon fiber aerodynamic aids such as the front air ducts and rear extractor. These lightweight parts are wind-tunnel tested to improve high-speed stability, and they look good doing it, too. At first glance, the Ghibli Trofeo may fly under the radar, but that’s part of the charm of this exclusive, high-performance model.

Potent Performance

Maserati engineers worked tirelessly to transform the Ghibli into the fastest Maserati sedan in the history of the brand. The result is performance that can simply be described as intoxicating. A Ferrari-sourced 3.8 liter twin-turbocharged V8 delivers 580 horsepower and 638 lb-ft of torque. The result? A 0-60 MPH run in just 4.0 seconds from a standing start, en route to a top speedof 203 miles per hour. Corsa Drive Mode with Launch Control helps you to approach these heroic numbers, and the standard Skyhook suspension system is carefully designed to make the Maserati Ghibli Trofeo an exceptional performer in the corners as well.
