Maserati has revealed V8-powered Trofeo versions of the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans ahead of an Australian release early next year.
The Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo variants will use the same 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine found in the Levante Trofeo. It produces a hefty 433kW of power and 730Nm of torque.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and a self-locking rear differential.
Performance-wise, the Ghibli Trofeo can sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.3 seconds while the Quattroporte Trofeo takes 4.5 seconds. Both cars have a top speed of 326km/h.
Like the Levante Trofeo, the Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo will feature the Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) system with a Corsa driving mode.
The Trofeo models are distinguished by a front grille with twin vertical bars in gloss black, carbon-fibre on the front air duct trims and rear extractor, red details on the bottom profiles of the side air vents, a lightning bolt on the Trident badge on the C-pillars, 21-inch alloy wheels, and restyled light clusters inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.
Ghibli variants also get a tweaked bonnet with two air ducts for better cooling, just like on Levante Trofeo.
On the inside, buyers will get full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather upholstery, Trofeo badging on the headrests, and the brand’s new infotainment platform shown on a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen. The system includes Maserati Intelligent Assistant and Maserati Connect, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Australian pricing will be announced closer to the local launch.
