An exciting and exhilarating machine


The car has been flawless apart from two electrical niggles. One TDI sensor shorted which was an inconvenience as it means you end of driving with only one bank of cylinders, but it was easily fixed.

General Comments:

This is an amazing piece of Italian engineering and was over $200,000 when new. The old owner reported that it is the only white Ghibli in Australia. The car has a plush leather interior with walnut trimmed dashboard. There is an amazing sound system including a Pioneer amplified, Alpine 6 stack CD shuffle in the boot and (speaker system. It has performance like you wouldn't believe and not a safety feature in the world - no ABS, no traction control, nothing. Just raw power that puts the boot in your backside when you put your foot down. An exciting and exhilarating machine.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
