Maserati, the luxury car factory in Italy has used the name Ghibli for three of its vehicles, manufactured on three different occasions. The name was first assigned to a Grand Tourer, the AM115, which was introduced to the global market in 1966 and it survived up to 1973. Then, the Coupe, the AM336 was assigned with the name during its launch in 1992, but it survived only for five years and it was discontinued in 1997. The third vehicle to attain the name is an executive saloon, the M157, which was introduced to the worldwide market by the Italian automaker in 2013. The 2017 Maserati Ghibli is the redesigned version of this 2013 model Ghibli, which will be a luxury sedan with four doors.
