Maserati Ghibli vs Quattroporte Comparison - Maserati of Akron

History of the Quattroporte and Ghibli

First introduced in the early 1960s, the Maserati Quattroporte first made its debut. At the time, drivers were searching for a luxury sedan that combined premium comfort with the race-winning pedigree associated with Maserati sports cars. In constructing the Quattroporte, Maserati engineers drew inspiration from its stable of racing engines and sport-focused chassis. Italian for “4 doors”, the Maserati Quattroporte captured the hearts of thousands around the globe and is now in its 6th generation.

Debuting shortly afterward in 1966 at the Turin Motor Show, the Maserati Ghibli was initially powered by a 4.7L dual-cam V8 and a 0-60 time of fewer than 7 seconds. The Ghibli has gone through several iterations, initially being sold as a 2-door coupe through the 1990s before being reintroduced in 2014. Today’s Maserati Ghibli helps drivers stand out from the mundane competition from Germany and Japan with its quintessential Italian design, track-bred performance, and coupe-like agility.

To help you understand the key differences between these two exciting sports sedans, Maserati of Akron has assembled this in-depth model comparison. After you learn the distinctions between the two, you’ll have no trouble deciding whether the Ghibli or Quattroporte is the better fit for your lifestyle.
