FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHICAGO (February 6, 2014) – Maserati highlighted its new sport sedan, the Ghibli S Q4 during the 2014 Chicago Auto Show Media Preview.

Jeffrey Ehoodin, public relations manager at Maserati, emphasized Maserati’s 100-year-old Italian tradition of luxury is still “alive and well.” The new sport sedan offers AWD capability with a 3.0 liter twin turbo V6 engine that can easily accelerate up to 404 horsepower.

“If you like firing up your car every day, not just starting it, you have a new option on the menu – Italian.” said Ehoodin.
