It is Italian or Savoy blue; "azzurro". It's the same colour as you will se on Italian national soccer team players. And it is the same as the base in the Maserati emblem: the sea from where Poseidon's trident (the symbol of Bologna) emerges. There are few emblems more romantic and elegant than that; Alfa Romeo is another. I would, if I could afford a Ghibli, get it in azzurro or in burgundy or a very deep red. Amserati also sounds so beautiful to the ears. It is far more than an object or a car. Some get it others don't - and this is a good thing. I've never wanted to be in the crowd.
