I have a test drive booked for a RHD diesel Ghibli on Monday and will post a review then.
as expected, I would rather hear your opinions weighed against homogeneous competition than stretching the ghibli to compare with an Aston or Porsche.No - I would have had trouble knowing it was a diesel on start up. The active exhaust trickery makes a great sound in the car, I cannot say what it sounds like outside. There was no slowness in pickup and I had to set off quickly at one point from a junction when there was a gap in traffic. It has a decent amount of power in a relatively (compared to my past cars) light body and with 600NM of torque it is plenty quick enough for me although I am comparing it to diesel saloon cars like BMW and Mercedes not sports cars like AM and Porsche.
I have not tried the Panamera diesel as I think it is one of the ugliest cars on the planet.as expected, I would rather hear your opinions weighed against homogeneous competition than stretching the Ghibli to compare with an Aston or Porsche.
Actually speaking of Porsche how does Ghibli fare against Panamera?
AHAHAHAAA fair enough, Ghibli and Panamera buyers certainly operate at polar ends of the design spectrumI have not tried the Panamera diesel as I think it is one of the ugliest cars on the planet.
I was positively surprised by the performance of the diesel Ghibli and have ordered one in Blue Emozione, Executive Pack in Sabbia (was told it had to be fine grain leather for the full cabin in Sabia excluding dash), Rovere Chiaro wood, 8+4 way seats, 19inch Posedione wheels.
its not.I was thinking diesels or some diesels can get by without urea,maybe the member who just ordered a diesel can let us know if urea is needed or even used in Europe.
I don't know if urea is an US only additive
Another thing for US buyers is that diesel cost more here that kills most of the benefit of greater MPG's.
