Maserati Ghibli – Maserati Does Diesel


Now, where’s the manual? Things didn’t get off to a good start with the Ghibli. For some reason, both interior lights won’t switch off and I’m scratching my head to find out why.

In the end, a nice chap in their technical department informed me this was a common issue. The interior light switch mechanism can be overridden via a dial on the dashboard. The dial is perfectly position to connect with your knee when you climb in the driver’s seat!

That sorted, I’m already madly in love with the shape of the car. It’s so beautifully different to key rivals, like the BMW 535d, or the ugloid Mercedes CLS.

The proof of the pudding will be in the driving, of course. If it performs anywhere near as good as it looks, it’s going to be a fun week…
