Maserati's take on the mid-size premium sports sedan segment is the 2017 Ghibli. Aimed directly at the high end BMW 5-Series, Jaguar XF S and Mercedes-Benz E-Class variants, this Italian model is sold here in two petrol variants - 3.0 V6 and S 3.0 V6 priced at RM618,800 and RM708,800 respectively.
All Ghibli variants feature a Ferrari designed and manufactured 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged, direct-injected V6 mill, paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The powertrain in the range topper on the other hand is tuned to output 410hp and 550Nm of torque. Performance wise this Maser is capable of doing the century sprint in five seconds flat before topping off at 285km/h.
