The Trofeo collection is the most prestigious choice in the Maserati fleet. In 2021, we recognize the Trofeo collection has expanded to include two sedans and one SUV. The recently tested and enjoyed Levante Trofeo, the Quattroporte Trofeo and this week’s tester, the Ghibli Trofeo.
For the first time, in 2021 Maserati also introduces its first V8 engine option in the Ghibli and our Trofeo tester pounded the ground with 580 horsepower, making it Maserati’s fastest sedan ever with a top speed of 203 mph. With 538 lb.-ft. of torque, moving the Ghibli is easy as can be as the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 prances on demand. The Ghibli Trofeo, along with all three cars in the Trofeo collection features launch control as well. Paired with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, the Ghibli is the vehicle that you always dreamed about experiencing while understanding that it has a lot more to offer than most people think. Did I mention a zero-to-60 time in 4 seconds flat?
Our Grigio Maratea exterior tester was a combination of deep gray with a splash of brown while the interior was luxurious Pieno Fiore black leather. Offered in eight interior color options and six exterior colors, the subtle yet gorgeous Ghibli is a standout.
The Ghibli Trofeo puts its competition, the BMW M series and Mercedes AMG, on notice. Its plush interior, powerful powertrain and exquisite exterior sights sure will throttle down the German powerhouses.
Maserati is the embodiment of true Italian luxury, which has overshadowed the brand’s storied accomplishments on the racetrack. Maserati’s sedans traditionally put an emphasis on luxury, while performance comes second. That’s changing with the Trofeo line, in an attempt to lure American drivers away from high-performance German sedans. The Trofeo will feature a 580 horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine derived from Ferrari, which sets the standard for Italian performance. While it might not be as powerful as the BMW M5 or the Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 S, it has a rear-wheel drivetrain instead of the all-wheel drive offered by its German competitors, which will likely be embraced by true driving enthusiasts. While high-performance German sedans are admired, they don’t turn heads due to their popularity. The Ghibli Trofeo will stand out while providing the true opulence and performance that celebrate the brand’s rich heritage.Karl Brauer, executive analyst from iSeeCars.com, said.
He said to give the “Trophy” to Maserati, because the Ghibli Tropheo is one of the nicest, sportiest and fastest sports sedans Grasso’s Garage has ever witnessed. Just another reason why we tip our hat to Maserati every opportunity we get!
