The fun and sporty six-cylinder engine in the Ghibli has camshafts and injectors specifically designed to cut down on fuel consumption without impacting the response to the throttle. In fact, the engine can take you from zero to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and reaches top speeds of 163 mph.
Yet it also has the best fuel efficiency in the Maserati line with 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

Plus, even though the Quattroporte has a long wheelbase for one of the most comfortable rides available, it’s also been engineered to handle with exceptional ease.
