WITH ITS SWEEPING, SCULPTED AND SVELTEBODY, THIS MASTERPIECE HAS RAISED THE STAKES MANIFOLD. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT INDIA, TOO, IS ON MASERATI'S RADAR

THE legacy of Italian families who have invested their lives in creating some of the most hallmark machines to roam the Earth will always stand. Borne in the common womb of automotive excellence, Maserati has governed the fantasies of racing enthusiasts for a better portion of the last century and found its way into the echelons of luxury and performance in recent decades. From there, it commands a position of respect, with each new rendition that rolls in.

All Maserati cars are named after the impactful winds and the Maserati Ghibli is no exception. After debuting at the 1966 Turin Motor Show, it has come a long way and has finally beached on Indian shores. What’s really exciting is that it brings the top-of-the-line Trofeo model as well.

This shows the company’s intent and vision for the Indian market. Before you curb your enthusiasm, you need to know that the Hybrid variant has also landed. So, let’s dive into the details.

AN ABSOLUTE STUNNER

MASERATI is known to have normalised 4-door sedans. That’s commonplace. However, the front grille and the tail-lights have received a few noticeable touches. The LED headlamps sport adaptive Matrix lights offering the driver a 200 per cent greater field of vision as compared to conventional headlamps. The presence of blue accents across the body makes it quite distinct from its cousins. You find it on the front fenders, brake calipers, and the emblem on the C-pillar. And this pattern is carried forward inside the car as well.

Turkey A Land Of History, Culture And Cuisine

Cizgi was the cheapest car rental I could locate from the Istanbul International Airport and opted for an automatic Dacia Sandero to take on the impressive and well-maintained roads of Turkey. The highways are four lanes each way with an emergency lane. There are no potholes or uneven surfacing. The toll gates are automatic and one does not have to stop for the tag to be read. Apart from the highways, even the minor roads are surfaced and maintained well. Another feature is that the highways are grid-separated and have a maximum speed limit of 120kmph. Off the highways, speed limits varied between 70kmph and 90kmph.
