Not many countries can throw a CV on the table quite as impressive as Italy's. Art. Science. Music. Language – it more or less invented them. Yup as countries go Italy is a doer. Or it used to be… see sometimes you get the feeling that it's a maybe bit tired and just wants to curl up on its laurels have a little sleep.

Does that go for its famous car brands too? Maserati. The name drips in heritage. So well known is it that even people who don't know car well, know Maserati means something special. But is the brand just trading on a long gone reputation?

That Maserati Ghibli desperately wants to prove me wrong. It want to convince me that Maserati is at the top of its game, that it's a weapon people should choose over a BMW M3 or Benz C63 s. But my gut instincts makes me think that you could be better off with settling down with a conservative German than a crazy Italian which you may have more fun with only for it to end messy. It's almost like I'm giving you relationship advice. I just want you to be happy.

But let's give the Ghibli a chance – I mean look at it. This thing is hnnnggggggggg...

      It's nothing but FCA spare parts and terrible engineering. The reason why depreciation is really bad after the first 3 years and even more after 5 years.

      the 4200 cabiacorsa was the last real Maserati ferrari 430 engine shared with the ferrari California . this is plastic fantastic with an engine made for the car, not a ferrari engine. some of parts are from the jeep Cherokee, WHAT THE HELL.

      The Ghibli is aimed at M5/6 and E65 not M3 or E63's get your facts right!

      I drove this car last year. it belongs to my friend. Very nice. He asked me to rev it to 5K and shift the gear. Goodness, my heartbeat rev up too. The twin turbo is overwhelming.

      It's a beautiful car but it has all kinds of problems mechanically in electrically... it's not worth the money spends more time in the garage and it does driving around and I'm talking to my experience.
      I have friends who has them I got Brothers who works on them . They're not worth the money at all👎👎👎

      Its not that good of a car...believe me .....and yes I currently own a 2017 Ghibli. When opening the trunk it "flings" open ,
      thin and uncontrolled ....not smooth like a merc or BMW  .....embarrassing when opening the trunk looks like a Honda accord trunk in a $90,000 car ....feels more like a $60,000 car 
      The  touch screen and interface are molasses....I have  owned GTRs 1993, and 2017 ,  2011 LP-670 SV,  930 Turbo, 997 turbo 996 turbo , AMG E63, AMG S65, Audi RS5, just to name a few,  and built turbo civics when I was a youngster .....Trust me .....get something else.

      Funny how glowing and clearly paid off this review is for this ridiculously overpriced underequipped underperforming vehicle. Want a _real_ expert rating check out Doug Demuro's review.

      Last week I drove this car. My friend own this car. At 3000rpm the car roar. At 6000rpm the car sounded like a lion raring to come out. The experience is just overwhelming.

      c63s is way too small for over 6' person. ( oh please don't put me in the rear seat!!! ) M3 lot better, but Maz is like different league.
