The carmaker has identified a problem with the throttle (or accelerator) pedal and the floor mats, which could see the pedal stuck in an open-throttle position.
Should this occur whilst underway, the driver may lose control of the vehicle, resulting in a collision causing injury or worse to the vehicle occupants and other road-users.
Maserati says a combined total of 1018 Ghibli and Quattroporte examples are affected by the recall, with 907 in Australia and a further 111 in New Zealand.
The carmaker issued a separate recall for its Quattroporte late last year, owing to a potential problem with a wiring harness.
Maserati will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
