Limited Maserati Ghibli Scatenato rolls in

New Scatenato middles Maserati Ghibli line-up from $154,990 driveaway

6 Feb 2019

MASERATI Australia has imported just 20 examples of its Ghibli Scatenato – a limited-edition variant of the large sedan – priced at $154,990 driveaway.


That price-point puts the Scatenato somewhere in the middle of the Ghibli line-up, which ranges from $138,990 plus on-road costs for the entry-level Ghibli D to $195,990 for the Ghibli S GranSport.


According to Maserati Australia chief operating officer Glen Sealey, the choice to offer driveaway pricing was partly due to Australian component laws that make it illegal to advertise before on-road cost figures.


“It’s frustrating in Australia. The ACCC demand that we put a driveaway price,” he said.

“There’s different stamp duty laws in each state. So, there’s price differentials between each state, and then you have to deal with the delivery price.


“So as an industry it is very difficult to advertise a driveaway price.”

Unique to the Scatenato is new 21-inch forged alloy wheels shrouding Maserati Blue callipers, power-adjustable leather sports seats, a sports steering wheel and a piano-black interior finish.


It also includes driver-assistance systems such as traffic sign recognition, active blind-spot warning and active cruise control.


The Scatenato carries over the standard petrol-powered Maserati Ghibli’s 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine, which is tuned to produce 257kW/500Nm and delivers a zero-to-100km/h sprint time of 5.5 seconds.


Top speed is rated at 267km/h thanks in part to its ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, and fuel economy is set at a claimed 11.0 litres per 100km on the combined cycle.


For comparison, the entry-spec Ghibli produces 202kW/600Nm from its turbo-diesel engine, and the range-topping Ghibli S variants produce 316kW/580Nm.


The Scatenato is now available from Maserati dealerships, with Mr Sealey predicting the 20 units will sell quickly – if they are not already all spoken for.

“The combination of the 350 hp Maserati Ghibli, this unique equipment package, the exclusivity of just 20 for Australia and an equally remarkable price will mean that when the Scatenato is unleashed (to) Australian dealers, it will not be around for long,” he said.


Maserati released its facelifted Ghibli range in March last year; despite this, the Ghibli recorded an 11.4 per cent decline in sales, at 194 units, in 2018.


However, 2018 was a tough year for the large-car segment in general, with many of the Ghibli’s key rivals also finding themselves in the red, including the Audi A6 (-23.5%), Jaguar XF (-10.8%) and Lexus GS (-47.5%).
