2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo

Coming out of the Maserati production line is the 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo. The English translation of the Italian word “Trofeo” is trophy. When it comes to the 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo, it earns its trophy value as the most powerful of Maserati’s range of the Ghibli series.

It can achieve a top speed of 203 miles per hour and the ability to reach 60 miles power hour within 4 seconds. When this vehicle accelerates, there is slight yaw in the tail end as the rear tires hunt for traction, and the mechanical differential works to figure out where to send the torque. It is a smooth smooth transition, which is what the Maserati Ghibli Trofeo series strives for most. At base value, the 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo starts at $115,000.

2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo Reviews

According to Car and Driver, the 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo still comes with the “leap of faith” classification every vehicle coming from the manufacturers of Maserati is known for. While this model of their Ghibli Trofeo series doesn’t seem as “scary’ it still carries mixed reactions from critics and consumers where the Maserati name is concerned. The YouTube review, given by Auto Fanatic, brings up the 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo’s unique body features, clearly appreciating the sleek style that has gone into it. The details shown in the video review are very thorough. There is much focus on the carbon fiber involved in Trofeo’s exterior features.

In addition to bringing up this model’s exterior features, Auto Fanatic also brings up the Ghibli Trofeo is known for being a luxury sedan car. It is pointed out to keep this in mind when comparing it to sportscar models, which are designed for a very different set of buyers in mind. Auto Fanatic stresses how the Ghibli Trofeo is a big, heavy car and is meant to be a luxury vehicle. As much fun as Auto Fanatic enjoyed the ride, there were a few concerns addressed such as drivability, but admitted this is due to how different this model coming from Maserati’s line, even from its Ghibli series, is quite different from what they’ve produced in the past. According to their conclusive review, unless the driver is in “full Corsa mode” the optimal performance coming from the 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo will not be there.

Coming from Motor Authority’s review of the 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo series, they explained how this model added more substance, as a vehicle, to the entire Maserati line. Instead of focusing on form over function, the review here brings up how the gap between the two is better closed in through the combination of new physical and performance features. The review of this model from the Maserati Range was mostly positive, despite the wariness still expressed towards Maserati’s track record as a quality vehicle manufacturer is concerned. Boston Auto Blog’s YouTube review of the 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo series covers over 27 minutes of a very thorough breakdown of all the pros and cons they’ve found with it. It was brought up about how Maserati should be focusing more on grand touring vehicles, something of which originally placed Maserati as an elite car manufacturer, to begin with. The mistake of moving away from a range of vehicles they’re most respected for is what has been described as the reason why the most recent history of Maserati’s production line has become underwhelming.


The 2021 Maserati Ghibli Trofeo has been agreed by most reviewers that it is a step in the right direction for the company known as Maserati to take, especially if they wish to regain the solid reputation they once upon a time had. Putting in the Ferrari-derived twin-turbocharged V8 engine proved to be the winning component as it made this line of the Ghibli series the most performant yet. It is the hope of luxury car consumers, as well as critics, that Maserati continues to make an effort to dismantle the “leap of faith” stigma that has been following them around.
