Maserati has recently released more details on the diesel engine which will equip the brand new Ghibli.
The Italian based automaker Maserati will offer, for the first time in its history, a diesel engine for its vehicles. The first model to receive the new unit will be the brand new Ghibli, which was officially presented to the public during the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, last month. The engine in question will be a 3.0 liter V6 diesel, with special active valve, controlled by the computer, which is constanly modulating its frequency of the sound waves passing through the exhaust. This is allowing it to be quiet at cruising speeds but to “sing” at just over 3,000 rpm.
The new diesel engine to equip the Maserati Ghibli is unique to the company and it won’t just sound good, but it will also offer some impressive performance. According to the car manufacturer, the 3.0 liter V6 unit will produce a total output of 275 BHP and it will have an impressive peak torque of 600 Nm available on overboost. The engine will allow the Ghibli to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in approximately six seconds. The model is expected to have an impressive fuel economy and to emit just 158 g/km of CO2. Prices for the Ghibli Diesel will be set at approximately 52,000 GBP once it will hit showrooms, this autumn.
