The Ghibli Cup was derived directly from the Open Cup racing version, modified for use on public roads. Launched at the Bologna Motor Show in December 1995, the 2.0-liter V6 was rated 330 hp at 6,500 rpm, giving the car an effective top speed of nearly 168 mph and making it the world's most powerful 2.0-liter production car. Though understated in appearance, it was identified by five-spoke Speedline alloy wheels, a lower suspension, more aggressive brake components, and a racing-type aluminum fuel cap. Colors were limited to red, white, yellow or French Blue. Only 60 examples of the Ghibli Cup were made, followed by an additional 15 examples produced upon request, powered by a 2.8-liter V6 engine.
