Maserati Ghibli 1967-1973

[B]The Maserati Ghibli [/B] is a two-door, two-seater coupe released by Maserati in 1967. The V8-powered Ghibli was the most popular Maserati vehicle since the automaker withdrew from racing in the 1950s, and it outsold its two biggest rivals, the Ferrari Daytona and the Lamborghini Miura.
It debuted at the 1966 Turin Motor Show.

The Ghibli's steel body, renowned for its low, shark-shaped nose, was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. Giugiaro, who today heads his own company ItalDesign, worked at coachbuilder Ghia when he designed the Ghibli.

The car was powered by a front-placed quad-cam 330hp V8 engine. It had a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 6.8 seconds, had a top speed of 154 mph and could be operated by either a five-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. Maserati fitted the car with two fuel tanks, which could be filled via flaps on either side of the roof pillars. The car also featured pop-up headlamps, leather sport seats and alloy wheels.

The convertible Ghibli Spyder went into production in 1969. The Spyders were relatively rare, and the coupes outnumbered them almost ten to one. The slightly more powerful Ghibli SS (335 hp) was released in 1970. The Ghibli went out of production in 1973 and found a successor the following year with the Bertone-designed Khamsin.

Maserati resurrected the name Ghibli for the [URL="http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/forum/showthread.php?t=45582"]Maserati Ghibli II[/URL] which was produced from 1992 till 1997.

which maserati had the asymmetrical hood vents?

ZeTurbo 09-04-2006 07:59 PM

what a Beauty! Flowing lines from front to back, from top to bottom, from inside to the outside. Is there a more passionate design from Italy in that decade? maybe only the 250 GTO.

Favorite Maser? i think so...

I aquired a small cube shaped book called 'Dream Cars'. It was cheap so I bought a second example, from which I carefully torn the pages out. I also have a new scanner. The end result = Art.

Resolution could be bigger but the quality will drop in that case.[/quote]

Unfortunately the result is also a breach of copyright, so perhaps better not publish them here?

Well, if I had not put a title up (which is a translation by the way) I am sure no one would even notice or comment.

What about all the other pic's in the Hide out? I can already guess how many approvals from the publisher/photographers/manufacturers were asked before posting them...

Now it seems I am the only member in the Hide Out who completely forgot about copyright! Hopefully we can keep the pictures online.

If not please feel free to delete them. But it would be hypocrite just complaining about this 1 picture in that case :rolleyes:

I am not complaining, I am suggesting. I think pictures downloaded from the internet (many times via press sites of manufacturers) are free of copyright, and if not might be watermarked.
b.t.w. it was only the Ghibli shot in post 7 that came directly from this book?
It is a shady area but perhaps scanning from a book without permission should be avoided.

Hmm. Reading my earlier comments I feel I overreacted a bit. But anyway that's how I thought about it. It only concerns post #7 indeed.
