The next descendant of the Biturbo family tree resurrected the name of one of the greatest cars of the 1960s. The new Ghibli, based on the Biturbo platform, showcased a wider, thoroughly modern body design, and offered with a 2.0-liter V6 for the domestic market and a 2.8-liter V6 for export. The aluminum V6 engine also reached the ultimate stages of its development, with twin-cam, four-valve heads and a power output of 306 hp from the 2.0-liter powerplant. Coupled to the Getrag six-speed manual gearbox, it achieved a top speed of more than 161 mph. In 1995, the Ghibli was named Ghibli GT and underwent a number of technical modifications, including a new rear differential.
