The original Ghibli I (Tipo 115) is a two-door, 2+2 grand tourer released by Maserati in 1967. The V8-powered Ghibli debuted at the 1966 Turin Motor Show and proved to be the most popular Maserati vehicle since the automaker withdrew from racing in the 1950s, outselling its two biggest rivals, the Ferrari Daytona and the Lamborghini Miura. American magazine Sports Car International named it number nine on its list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s.

The Ghibli’s steel body, characterized by its low, shark-shaped nose, was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, then a coachbuilder at Ghia.

The car was powered by a front-placed quad-cam 310 bhp (230 kW) V8 engine. It had a 0-60 mph time of 6.8 seconds, a top speed of 154 mph (248 km/h) and was available with either a five-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. Even by the standards of its time and class, the car consumed copious volumes of fuel, but Maserati fitted the car with two 50 L (13.2 US gal; 11.0 imp gal) fuel tanks, which could be filled via flaps on either side of the roof pillars. The car also featured pop-up headlamps, leather sport seats and alloy wheels.
