Maserati is opening 2019 by unleashing just 20 in Australia of the limited-edition Maserati Ghibli Scatenato which hones the performance and style of Maserati’s sports saloon with a generous additional equipment package.
The Maserati Ghibli Scatenato – which is Italian for ‘Unleash’ – is powered by the Maserati designed, Ferrari built twin turbo 3.0 litre V6 engine that pumps out 350 hp and that launches the Ghibi Scatenato to 100 kmh in 5.5 seconds and on to, where the law permits, a top speed of 267 kmh. At the same time this technically advanced engine, combined with its electronically controlled eight speed gearbox sips fuel at a rate of just 11.0 l/100 km on the combined test cycle.
To the already generous equipment package boasted by the Maserati Ghibli 350 hp, the Scatenato adds 21 inch Titano forged alloy wheels which are wrapped around brake calipers in Maserati Blue. Inside the standard seats have been up graded to wrap-around Sports Seats upholstered in supple leather that enable the driver to use the new Maserati Sports Steering wheel to fully exploit the added grip endowed by the 21 inch wheels and for passengers to enjoy the ride in cosseting comfort. The front seats are heated and also offer 12 way electric movement with two memory settings for the driver. The interior trim is completed by the finest black piano finish. Safety is not overlooked with the Ghibli Scatenato also including traffic sign recognition and active blind spot warning, while the active cruise control combines safety and convenience.
“Unleashed is very much the right word to describe the Maserati Ghibli Scatenato,” says Glen Sealey, Chief Operating Officer of Maserati Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. “The combination of the 350 hp Maserati Ghibli, this unique equipment package, the exclusivity of just 20 for Australia and an equally remarkable price will mean that when the Scatenato is unleashed in Australian dealers, it will not be around for long!”
The Maserati Ghibli Scatenato is available in Australian Maserati dealerships from 1 January 2019. As well as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, Maserati dealerships are now open on the Gold Coast and in Canberra.
