Written by Kanad Kalasur

Maserati has unveiled the Ghibli 334 Ultima & Levante V8 Ultima at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The V8 engine cars mark the end of an era at Maserati. As the supplier agreement for the V8 engines comes to an end, the Italian carmaker will produce only 103 units of each car as an homage to the V8 engine. The first car to feature the V8 engine was the 5000 GT.

The 334 in the Ghibli stands for the top speed of the car in km/h. This makes it the fastest production car in the world. The acceleration of the car has also been improved. The sedan now clocks 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds.

For the outsides, Maserati has finished the car in Scià di Persia colour with Rubino accents. The Ghibli 334 Ultima gets 21-inch alloys with dark accents and glossy black brake callipers. There is a carbon fibre lip spoiler as well. On the inside, the upholstery consists of Pale Terracotta leather and Alcantara.
