Ever Wondered What It Would Be like to Drive a 2015 Maserati Ghibli S Q4?

Hi Everyone, Mama D here and this week I drove a 2015 Maserati Ghibli S Q4; Bianco (white) exterior with Rosso Trofeo (red) Leather. Before I start my review I have to be honest and admit that prior to driving this car I always considered it “a wanna be” Maserati. That’s because one of my favorite cars is the Maserati Quattroporte GTS and in my mind the Ghibli was a cheap imitation of a great car.

BOY WAS I WRONG!!! From the moment I sat in the car and pushed the “Sport” mode, Mama D was in love!!! I thought the car sounded great when I started it up but when I put it in sport mode this brought it to a whole new level…pure awesomeness!!!! You must rev it up a few times just to hear how great it sounds like I did. This car came with Remote Start but why spoil all the fun…needless to say I never even tried it!!!

As I glance around the car before I leave the lot I was really impressed by the rosso trofeo leather interior as red would normally not be a color I would choose. In this car it was fabulous though because outside it has matching red painted calipers adding to its beauty and the high gloss carbon fiber trim was a very classy contrast! Another feature that adds class to this car is the Alcantara headliner and Alcantara Pillars…and please don’t ask me what Alcantara is because I haven’t a clue; all I know is it looks and feels great!

I leave the lot and am driving on 35E and am immediately up to 115….whoopsies…I am definitely going to have to watch my lead foot in this vehicle!! The first clue should have been when I heard a little ding sound and “Speed Limit Exceeded” appeared in the dash. As you may have guessed it was a frequent visitor the whole time I drove the car. My favorite place to drive is the express lanes with no cars because I could really let loose. I would envision myself driving through the countryside in Italy going faster and faster; while blasting the 600 watt 10 speaker premium sound system…I completely lost myself!! (That’s why I never drive a car without my Valentine..as in radar detector).

This is an awesome car in so many ways!!! This has to be one of the most fun cars I have ever driven. Not only is it fast but it exhibits superior handling as well; partially due to the Skyhook Electronic Damping Control. This feature instantly adapts the car’s setup to match the driving conditions and road surface. This can be a dangerous feature, as you will have no idea how fast you are actually going because the ride at any speed is so smooth.

Another reason this Maserati delivers dynamic performance is because it comes with Sport Package 20 w/urano machine polish wheels, paddle shifters (that I made sure I didn’t touch!) and Inox sport foot pedals which were very accommodating to my lead foot-lol. This vehicle is loaded with $16,000 worth of great options…too many for me to go into right now.

Mama D normally doesn’t discuss price but in this case I am because I think the most shocking thing to me was that this awesome car only cost $39,450!! And right now, you can get a brand new one at Essence for around $60,000 which I find really incredible!! People think this is an $80,000 car that’s how good it looks!

One thing Mama D learned driving this car, was never judge a book by its cover so to speak or let your perspective of something keep you from trying it! This Maserati Ghibli S Q4 is an awesome car and others will try to imitate it cause it is definitely not trying to imitate anyone!

Anyway if you are looking for a vehicle that is classy and sexy to the eye, comfortable and luxurious inside and a thoroughbred on the road then the Maserati Ghibli is for you!! Go test drive them at eCarOne or Essence Maserati and tell them Mama D sent you…speaking of which if you like Mama D’s blogs please comment and let her know…or better yet actually GO to the dealership and test drive one and tell them Mama D sent ya!

Until next time I wish you all Happy and Safe Driving,

Mama D
