Ghibli sees Maserati debut its first diesel engine Shanghai - Arabstoday The Shanghai Motor Show, opening on Saturday with the press day, will mark three giant steps in Maserati’s march towards its goal of 50,000 cars a year. The Maserati momentum that began late last year with the all-new V8 and V6 Quattroporte continues in Shanghai with the all-new Ghibli – the first-ever mid-size four-door luxury sports saloon in Maserati’s history. The Ghibli will boast two different power outputs from its turbo-charged V6 petrol engines. The Ghibli will additionally be offered with the first diesel engine in Maserati’s history. The turbo-diesel 3.0-litre V6, developed by Maserati engineers under the direction of Scuderia Ferrari’s former Chief Motorist Paolo Martinelli, will deliver traditional Maserati high performance and sound but will use less than six litres per 100 km on the NEDC fuel economy cycle. Another Maserati making its world debut in Shanghai is a version of the new Quattroporte equipped with a V6 capable of 330 Hp (243kW) and specifically conceived and developed for the Chinese market.
