Report: Maserati V6 comes from Pentastar engine

by David Zatz on

Italian web site al Volante reported details on the gasoline-powered turbo V6 currently being produced by Ferrari for use in the Maserati Ghibli. According to al Volante, the 3.0 V6 uses the architecture of the Chrysler Pentastar engine family, adding credence to statements made by Allpar sources in the past. The heads are made locally by Ferrari, which is making 30 engines per day at the moment, and expects to hit 50 per day by August. The 3.0 liter V6 produces 410 horsepower, and until now there has been no official confirmation that it was based on Chrysler’s work (the report was based on al Volante’s visit to the factory).

Thanks to RVC for providing this update.
