The Quattroporte is an extraordinary car and its design is no less impressive
The challenge of stylistically combining the sporty performance and classical elegance of the most famous Italian luxury saloon has always fascinated the greatest designers: Pietro Frua, Bertone, Giorgetto Giugiaro, Marcello Gandini and Pininfarina. Maserati's latest creation is a worthy successor to their masterpieces, retaining a streamlined, absolutely dynamic look. The front is immediately recognisable with a distinctive front: the traditional Maserati oval grille, with convex vertical bars, leads on to the majestic bonnet and the new front light assembly, with LED day lights. Its style and elegance are combined with physical muscular curves that caress the side from the familiar three air vents to the all-LED rear lights and the integral boot spoiler.
A classic Italian design
The Maserati Quattroporte is an extraordinary car, and its design is no less impressive. Since 1963, the challenge of stylistically combining the sporty performance and the classical elegance of the most famous Italian luxury saloon has fascinated the greatest designers: Pietro Frua, Bertone, Giorgetto Giugiaro, Marcello Gandini and Pininfarina. Now, the model that represents the epitome of the Maserati philosophy has been restyled in line with tradition, the perfect synthesis of luxury and power.
The new Quattroporte is a worthy successor to its forebears, retaining a streamlined and dynamic look. The first detail of this unmistakable design is the distinctive front: the traditional Maserati oval grille, which leads on to the majestic bonnet and the new front light assemblies, with LED day lights.
The headlights almost merge into the line of the sides, which start from the familiar three air vents behind the front wheels and run on in a sequence of muscular curves to caress the new rear light assemblies. The triangular C-pillar, which carries the iconic Saetta logo, is another obvious link to tradition.
Getting into the Quattroporte is like entering an exclusive lounge. Although extremely intuitive, the on-board controls are understated so that they don't steal the limelight from the real stars: the surfaces and materials. The Poltrona Frau® leather, the fine wood and the contrast stitching, styled according to the finest hand-crafted traditions, seamlessly follow the sleek lines of the dashboard, central tunnel and doors, enveloping the passengers in an atmosphere of luxury.
Maserati has always been famed for its innovative engine design: in this respect the new 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 installed in the Quattroporte GTS sets new standards, with a long list of sophisticated solutions that make this the most high-tech propulsion unit ever installed on a Maserati car. With its 530 HP, it takes the Quattroporte past the 300 km/h threshold with ease.
The new eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox with auto-adaptive software is lighter and more efficient than the previous generation and allows even faster gear shifts. The last two speeds are specially developed to reduce fuel consumption and increase comfort during long journeys at high speed. There are five operating modes.
