Maserati South Africa will soon launch the Maserati Ghibli Hybrid in South Africa as the first model to kick-start the brand’s new era. The Ghibli Hybrid is the first new model from Maserati to be launched in South Africa. It combines petrol and electric power, and South Africa was host to the hybrid testing mules during the hot weather testing cycle.
Following the introduction of the Hybrid, Maserati will shift its focus to high-performance cars, with the launch of a complete range of Trofeo models. The Ghibli Trofeo and the larger Quattroporte Trofeo are fitted with the same Ferrari-sourced V8 engine but promise a pure driving experience with 433kW delivered through the rear wheels. Both models will offer a top speed of 326 km/h.
The Maserati MC20 super sports car, which will make its debut in mid-2021, will arrive in South Africa towards the end of the year. The MC20 – for Maserati Corse – is the harbinger of a new era of style, performance and passion for the Italian brand. It features a new 463kW V6 engine made by Maserati with a 0-100km/h acceleration time of only 2.9 seconds and was voted the World’s Most Beautiful Supercar at the 2021 Festival Automobile International.
