Maserati publishes Italian car porn on its Facebook page

 We woke up this morning, and while still in a bit of a mental fog, logged onto Facebook as we are sure most of you did, too. In our feed, though, we happened to see, with our still fuzzy vision, the wondrous creature you see above: the Maserati Ghibli in “Blu Emozione.”

We immediate perked up as we poured over the latest BMW 3 Series competitor from Maserati. The aggressive and flared front end is simply stunning to behold, don’t you think?

Step inside the cabin and behold the well-formed seats in natural leather. Oh and that wood trim. It is simply to die for…

Now that we have our drooling out of the way, let’s talk what Maserati has put under the hood – or left on the floor, as it would appear in that engine photo.

Distinctively, Maserati will offer power options from the same displacement engine. The base engine will be a 325-horsepower and 368 pound-foot of torque producing 3.0-liter V6. That base powerplant should push the Ghibli to 62mph from a standstill in 5.6 seconds.

At the top of the range for the U.S. market will we be a 3.0-liter V6 producing 404 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. That one will make a 0-62 run in 5.0 seconds. What the price difference between the two will be, we don’t yet know. From where we sit, though, we’d stick with the base 368 horses unless the engine up-step is $500. 0.6-seconds faster 0-62 isn’t worth the likely $2,000 upgrade.

So there we have it; a bit of Italian car porn for you this morning. Enjoy.
