The new 2016 Maserati Ghibli is set to come with a price tag of around 100,000 USD. Well, as we all know the price tag will be justified by the fact that this is not just any other ordinary car waiting to be released to the market, but it is a high performance Maserati car with loads of exclusivities.
It was during the First World War that a few Italian car companies embarked on producing luxurious vehicles. And ever since, Maserati has never looked back on producing luxury sports cars that are exclusive in every aspect of their creation.

Despite the hullabaloo about the vehicle, it will come in a market riddled in rivalry with competitors such as Audi A7 or the Porsche Panamera, but we are confident that the Ghibli will find a soft spot to potential buyers.
