Although it never achieved massive success, the 1992 Ghibli was a stunning machine. Its main competition being the BMW 3-series, it used a similar layout with a two-door coupe moonquake body and front-engine/rear-wheel drive package. MacPherson struts and semi-trailing arm rear combined with four position shocks, all thoroughly developed through Maserati's race experience, made the ride and handling inspiring. Steering through the rack and pinion was equally razor-sharp. What further enhanced the experience was an all-alloy, four-valve per cylender short-stroke 17lci (2.8-liter) V6 which liked to be revved. Coupled with I win turbos, the Ghibli's powerplant produced stunning torque, easily enough to rival BMW's M3. This is an Italian thoroughbred from a company which has successfully produced supercars alongside sedans.
