It is universally acknowledged that Italians lead the world in car design, imbuing their cars not only with great beauty, but also adding that intangible touch of genius called ‘allure’. A prime example of this is the Quattroporte: cultured and refined, it is a masterpiece of sophistication, aesthetics and aerodynamic elegance.
Despite its impressive size, the Quattroporte manages to maintain a balanced and dynamic appearance - from the restyled Maserati grille at the front to its LED light clusters at the rear. Newly designed front and rear bumpers give the car even greater authority and presence, whilst the marque’s traditional three air vents are featured along the sides. Frameless doors then manage to give this executive saloon the appearance of a sleek coupé. The Quattroporte’s familiar triangular C-pillar, the celebrated Saetta logo, is another nod to the car’s innate sporty character, as are the quad chrome tailpipes and the integral boot spoiler, which generates downforce at high speeds. Its aerodynamics are unsurpassed, thanks in part to its flat underbody and also to a clever Air Shutter behind the front grille that controls the passage of air through the radiator and reduces drag.
Uncompromising style. Unparalleled performance.
In the new Quattroporte, Maserati has created a unique and exclusive car, designed for the discerning tastes of entrepreneurial pioneers and business trailblazers – high achievers who relish the unconventional and avant-garde. Naturally, for such a demanding clientele, the Quattroporte is available in a number of different guises and with three inspirational engines.
GranLusso: bespoke silk interiors
Exquisite Italian Zegna silk, colours and top class materials combine to generate an absolute masterpiece of taste and refinement – Maserati being the only brand in the world to feature bespoke silk interiors. Other GranLusso enhancements to the cabin include a wood and leather steering wheel, wood trim, power foot pedals, a power rear sunblind, four-zone climate control, and heated rear seats.
GranLusso: Irresistible style and enhanced exclusivity
Those who seek even more exclusivity and lavish luxury in their Quattroporte can opt for the unrestrained opulence of the GranLusso trim, with an interior styled and appointed by the leading fashion house of Ermenegildo Zegna. Exquisite Italian Zegna silk, colours and top class materials combine to generate an absolute masterpiece of taste and refinement – Maserati being the only brand in the world to feature bespoke silk interiors.
Eight-speed transmission and skyhook suspension: supreme onboard comfort and sheer driving pleasure
The sophisticated design of the eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox ensures precise gearchanges and exceptional performance, and comfortably manages the prodigious power of the different engines. Mounted behind the engine, it is assisted by auto-adaptive software that is able to recognise the way the car is being driven, and modifies the shifting pattern for each individual driver. There are five operating modes, selected using the buttons near the gear lever: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport, and Increased Control & Efficiency (I.C.E) for a better control in any weather conditions and the most comfortable and quietest engine response, along with minimal fuel consumption. Upshifts are all automatic unless a manual mode is selected.
GranSport: A sporty appearance all your own
For individuals of a sporting disposition who want their Quattroporte to reflect their more athletic lifestyles, there is the highly distinctive and dramatic GranSport trim. Exterior enhancements include front and rear new sports bumpers with exclusive black gloss features, body coloured sideskirts, 21” Titano wheels, and red brake callipers. Inside, the cabin benefits from special sports seats, gearshift paddles, Inox sport foot pedals, a new sports steering wheel, and Piano black trim.
GranSport: carbon fibre, outside and in
The Quattroporte can be made even more dynamic with exterior and interior Carbon packages. The exterior package features the door mirrors, door handles and central pillars all in sporty carbon fibre, whilst the interior package comprises carbon fibre steering wheel, door sills, and internal trim. Both packages can be ordered individually or together for the Quattroporte, and also with the GranSport trim, which then includes the front bumper profile in carbon fibre, too.
The Quattroporte comes with a choice of three mighty engines: the 410 HP 3-litre Twin Turbo V6 and the 530 HP 3.8 litre Twin Turbo V8 petrol units.
In addition there is a potent 3-litre V6 turbo diesel that produces a remarkable 275 HP.
Priority number one: protection for all
In designing the Quattroporte, Maserati made safety the number one priority. To provide the best possible protection for its occupants it features the latest-generation airbags and numerous state-of-the-art safety systems and devices.
