The engine included a new dry sump design had been devised in order to best accommodate the low bonnet line of Giugiaro’s sleek coupé, and was later used for the very same reason on the Khamsin.

A true thoroughbred GT, it was powered by a 4.7 litre engine developing 315 hp.
Giugiaro himself describes it this way: “A very striking, long, flat bonnet, full-width radiator grille, pop-up headlights, a sharply angled windscreen, wide squat sidelights that ended in a vertical segment, and very clean flanks even though the coach-line did have lots of movement to it.

The aluminium V6 engine also reached the ultimate stages of its development, with twin cam/4-valve heads and a power output of 306 hp from just 2 litres.
As per previous Biturbo models, the new Ghibli received a higher-capacity engine for export markets, given that the Italian model was limited to just 2.0-litres by way of extremely constraining tax regulations.
The two-seat Ghibli is best known as one of Giorgetto Giugiaro's earliest and cleanest designs.
The Espada's Bertone lines adroitly envelop an interior capable of carrying four adults in comfort without the dachshund proportions found on many 2+2s. Power is amply supplied by a high-revving 3.9-liter four-cam V-12.
