The Maserati Ghibli owes its name to the “ghibli”, a stormy wind from the Egyptian desert. Direct competitor of the prestigious Ferrari Daytona and Lamborghini Miura, the Maserati Ghibli is a masterpiece of aesthetics, power and flexibility recognized by many as one of the most successful Italian achievements of the 1960s.

Presented at the Turin Motor Show in 1966, the Ghibli coupé, designed by Giugiaro during his time at Ghia, is the true heir to the 5000 GT.

The Ghibli, produced in series, was marketed from 1967 to 1973.

In 1969, the AM 115/49, more commonly known as the Ghibli SS, became the fastest road car Maserati had ever produced.
