Maserati's new Ghibli sedan will make its global premiere in Shanghai this month, and a single new teaser image released today offers the first official glimpse of what's to come.

For its part, the carmaker has not confirmed the shrouded sedan is the new Ghibli, although its release for the event specifies an all-new model.

It is unclear however if the car bound for Shanghai will be a final production model or a thinly veiled concept, although the Ghibli is expected to hit showrooms later this year.

"A truly exciting discovery awaits you: the worldwide presentation of our newest model. Be the first to experience a stunning car, which will leave you breathless, confirming both the incomparable heritage of Maserati as well as its extraordinary future," Maserati says of the car's unveiling.

It is also clear that the covered sedan wears a difference face to the 'leaked' images uncovered last month. Here we see a pronounced snout, with back-set headlights reminiscent of the outgoing Quattroporte sedan.

The new 'Mazza' is expected to go head to head with high-spec versions of the Jaguar XF, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series.

Using a shrunken take on the Quattroporte’s platform, the Ghibli is likely to feature versions of the larger sedan’s new twin-turbocharged 3.0 litre V6 and 3.8 litre V8.

A turbodiesel version using the VM Motori 3.0 litre V6 found in the Chrysler 300 and Jeep Grand Cherokee is also said to be under consideration.

All Ghibli variants are expected to use the eight-speed ZF auto found in the Quattroporte, and an all-wheel drive option is likely to appear.
