MASERATI GHIBLI
Coupé: £8,785 (incl. P.T.)
Cabriolet: £9,295 (incl. P.T.)
Produced in both 2+ 2 coupe or two-seater cabriolet form, the Ghia-styled Maserati Ghibli is a fine example of the Italian specialist high-performance car. Its V8 engine with four overhead camshafts is virtually identical to the Maserati Mexico's engine, and comes in 4.7 and 4.9 litre sizes. The smaller unit develops 340 (SAE) h.p., and the larger 355 h.p. Both engines have four Weber carburettors and the 4900 can accelerate from 0-60 m.p.h. in just over five seconds! The aerodynamic qualities of the low-built bodywork are high, and the headlights are concealed beneath flip-up covers.
