Hi,
Just joined and thought I'd say hello. I took delivery of my 2021 Ghibli Sportivo X Hybrid mid July, and am enjoying it so far.
I've come from a Mercedes AMG C43 Coupe, which was a great car, as was the AMG CLA45 before that.

Looking forward to learning a lot about the car, in particular the quirks of the base stereo system, of which there doesn't appear to be much technical information about.



(That's not me in the driver seat, it's my boy looking rather fed up that I took his photo)

What a beautiful color. I'm really curious what the hybrid sounds like. I heard that they are going to cease production of the Ghibli in 2024 I think :cry:
It's difficult to explain the sound as I don't really have a point of reference when it comes to Maserati, But I can say it seems to have a reasonable tone for a 2.0ltr engine. It's sedate but noticeable rather then loud and shouty. If I ever get round to it, I'll video a few revs and post it up.

Thanks, that would be awesome. Hope you're enjoying the driving experience

Very nice... looking at some aftermarket alloys in gun metal as I think silver is too much and black will be way too much... mine is all blue with carbon parts on the exterior and soon to be wrapped chrome trim ;)
Gun metal would be nice, maybe gold? What I can say about Black or darker color is it is nice if you accidentally scrap something black paint is easy to cover up a scratch :) I speak from experience here :ROFLMAO:

How has the hybrid been treating you? Any issues? Would love to hear the exhaust and see some videos or additional photos!

So far so good with the hybrid, I can't compare it to any other Maserati engine, as I never driven any other Maserati. However, comparing it to the 3ltr twin turbo V6 Mercedes-AMG C43 coupe that I had before, I can say it has slightly less power and acceration of the line doesn't pull you back into the seat in the same way, but then I didn't buy this car for high performance, I bought it for comfort, better access to the rear seats for my passengers, (The C43 back seats were difficult to get into and uncomfortable, according to my son and my partner, when we went on a family touring holiday last year), and better efficiency, (Probably 5-10mpg better than the C43).

I'm enjoying driving it, and have had no issues so far. More pictures, and possibly video, will follow as and when I get around to cleaning it and finding somewhere to give a good background to any photos I take.
