The German highways with no speed limit, the well-known Autobahn, are a magnificent setting to learn about the true performance of cars and today’s video is clear proof of this. And it is that in this onboard video it is possible to see everything a Maserati Ghibli Trofeo with a V8 Ferrari engine squeezing its 580 hp on an Autobahnthus demonstrating that in Italy they also know how to make family cars with supercar features.
Following the cancellation of the engine supply agreement by Ferrari to Maserati, the last chance to enjoy this suggestive combination is possible through the Maserati Ghibli and Maserati Levante in their respective Trofeo versions, as well as the more stately Maserati Quattroporte. All these models share the same 3.8 V8 Twin-Turbo gasoline engine developed and manufactured by Ferrari, developing 580 CV and 730 Nm in the Trofeo versions as a symbol of maximum sportsmanship. Once the production of these cars and versions ceases, there will be no more Maserati-Ferrari.
And it is for this reason that this onboard video on the back of an entire Maserati Ghibli Trofeo has something really special. Beyond the cache of having a V8 signed by Ferrari under the hood, This engine has proven to be one of the best 8-cylinder mechanics on the market for its performance, its behavior and, especially, for its delicious sound.
In this way, in order to put coconuts like the BMW M5, the Audi RS 7 or the Mercedes-AMG E63 against the ropes, the Maserati Ghibli Trofeo claims a 0-100 km/h time of 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 326 km/h. During this video, unfortunately, it was not possible to reach the top speed due to the circumstances of the traffic and the road itself, having to settle for 278 km/h, but even so, it is worth listening to the roar of this 8-cylinder with the gas pedal on. background, also discovering how it gains speed with astonishing ease even once it exceeds 200 km/h.
