The in 1992 introduced Maserati Ghibli 2 was created by Gandini (known of many beautiful designs as the Countach and Stratos) and very recognisable due to its sharp lines. The Ghibli 2 was in essence an evolution of the 80’s Biturbo series.
The unique body design has incorporated some of the aggressive looks of the 1989 introduced Shamal and the longer you look at some of the little Ghibli design details, the more special it becomes.
In total approx 2200 Ghibli’s were manufactured of which half with the 2.0 litre engine and the other half with the 2.8 liter engine as in the Ghibli GT we offer. The Ghibli 2 was manufactured during a period of take over from first Fiat to full ownership of Ferrari and this is translated in several updates and improvements during its production period.
The GT is the most sought version of the Ghibli especially with the Getrag 6 speed manual set up. The GT includes the Ferrari 456 differential, 17 inch wheels and standard the electronic suspension.
This Ghibli was delivered to its first owner in 1997 in Switzerland where it had 3 owners in total of which the last since 2011. We bought it directly from its 3rd owner. With an extreme low mileage of not even 45.000 which is almost impossible to find these days; the best part is that its fully backed up by a comprehensive service history which makes this car an unique offer on the market.
Its tough to find a Ghibli 2 which has survived the typical life cycle of low purchase prices and many owner through the years 2000. Simply try to find another example in this condition, being a GT version, manual, low mileage, full history….being for sale.
In the colour Blu Spaziale, this Ghibli looks stunning and is free from accident history/ repairs. This Ghibli has been professionally repainted in 2012 by its last owner for cosmetic reasons and fully documented before – during and after the restauration. This has not been just a ‘spray over’ but the Ghibli is completely stripped including the doors that have been taken out. Many rubbers are replaced and many other parts either replaced or restored like the headlights which are fully ‘crack free’ – a common issue with the Ghibli. No effort/ costs has been spared on this. All panels and glass are original.
The 17 inch standard wheels are in good condition and fitted with Bridgestone Potenza tires around.
The pictures speaks for itself but the leather interior – in the colour Grigio Chiaro – is in a perfect condition, not something for granted with these Ghibli’s even with low mileage. The non smoking interior has been maintained well so the leather looks fresh without cracks. No dents in seat bolsters. The alcantara is in a good condition as well including the ceiling which fits straight. The carpets in the interior as well as in the boot is clean without any damages. All the electrics are working including A/C. The Ghibli is fitted with the electronic Koni suspension system. Original car manual and spare key included, even the 1997 Blaupunkt radio with Maserati display.
This Ghibli is fitted with the 2.8 litre engine with 284 Bhp/ 413 Nm and Getrag transmission. As with the ex/interior the engine bay is very clean and well maintained. In 2015 at 43.000km a major service was conducted for the value of 9K Euros. In 2018 at 44829km a regular service was done with fluids, etc and we did a major technical check through Maserati Garage Franco in the Netherlands including compression test and also a belt change.
The engine performs very well with healthy oil and (bi)turbo pressure. Due to the combination of the 2.8 litre with 6 speed manual the Ghibli can be driven very smooth and gentle but if required, it can be a real beast. Clutch and transmission in excellent condition. Solid drive. Ofcourse this last GT has been fitted with ABS. The Ghibli has a full service history from Switzerland, all documented including many bills to support.
This Ghibli is priced at the top-end of the market for obvious reasons at 42,900 Euro. This Ghibli is qualified as VAT car – 35,454 Euros ex VAT. A great Ghibli with unique to find specs which even after years of use will still will have low mileage and will keep its value. Perfect for a collection/ investment.
